“Face to Face with Death”
Twenty-six-year-old Theodore Roosevelt slowly stood from a crouched position behind some bushes. Before him, not 25 feet away, was a huge grizzly staring back with its beady eyes.
His hunter’s head was pounding as he first looked to his companion for instructions, then back toward the fierce-looking bear that had not shifted its gaze. He could almost smell the bear’s breath as he raised his Winchester 76 and prepared to shoot. Although a tenderfoot, TR knew that he would have but one chance at that distance. It would be his first and largest Grizzly.
