I wouldn’t recommend going out into the woods to hunt a bear with nothing but a sharp piece of metal at the end of a pole, but it’ll make one heck of a video if you happen to be successful and not get mauled. That’s just what YouTube user Josh Bowman did on this insane May 19 hunt in Alberta, Canada.

A lot had to go right to ensure that this didn’t go in a completely different direction, luckily it went exactly as planned. This definitely proves there must be something in the water in Canada.

No blind, no back up, about as primitive as you can get! This bear measured over 7 feet 1 inch from nose to tail, with his skull still in. We were hunting in Alberta Canada with John and Jenn Rivet 2016.
