“I had a dangerous encounter with a Barren Lands grizzly bear… It was the biggest grizzly I’ve ever seen… The first situation is always to keep a cool head… When it turned and headed toward me, I knew it was time to get ready to take some action.” – Will Steger, May 15, 2018. Thelon River, NWT. Day 56.
