Bow hunting elk became a nightmare when Chase Dellwo stumbled across a grizzly bear. He could not see the bear earlier and when he was almost within a meter of the grizzly, it woke up and knocked down Dellwo. The animal was real big and as it started attacking him again Dellwo suddenly remembered his grandmother’s sayings that the large animals has very bad gagging reflex. Instantly he put his right arm down the throat of the bear and it released him. Dellwo was thus able to seek medical help and ultimately survived with some stitches.
