John Wardynski shot a 6-point buck in Alcona County, on November 16th. He got out of his pop-up blind and started to track the blood trail. According to, at some point, John turned around to see a black bear standing next to his blind, which he thought was pretty cool. Until the bear started heading for his deer. And dragged it off.

John decided to let the bear, and his deer, go. Shooting the bear would've been illegal and following it to see if the bear would drop the buck, would've been dangerous. So, he did what anybody would do, in 2017: he took video of the whole event and posted it to his Facebook page.

The video is pretty cool. Here's the story and video.
