101. I am virtually certain that
there was a guide armed with an above average caliber rifle right behind him. Only an idiot would hunt a grizzly bear alone. I do recall in the state of Alaska, where there is a regulated/lottery-style bear hunt, the hunter must be accompanied by an armed guide. My guess is that some hunters found out the hard way that if one errs in trying to take down a grizzly bear, they can get torn to pieces.
I remember Fred Bear, his name has weight in the archery fraternity. 200 yards is too far for an effective bow shot. I would guess that Mr. Bear didn't want to get much closer than that.
I actually think that to try a bow shot at that distance is just plain foolish even if you're a accomplished archer.
