Sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear ----shreds your raft.
Alaska State Troopers say several members of a bear-hunting party found themselves stranded early Wednesday near Klukwan in Southeast Alaska after a sow bear with two cubs shredded their Zodiac inflatable raft.
None of the hunters was injured.
Troopers say the hunters walked upriver toward klukwan and fired rifle shots to attract attention. A Klukwan resident took a canoe across the Chilkat River after hearing the shots and yells from the other side. The hunters were given a ride back across the river in the canoe and returned to their vehicles.
