I agree generally but having lived there for 15 years and observing bears during the salmon runs I was very comfortable in the kayak...at a distance..the encounter up the creek was after NOT seeing bears at all for two days. The steaming scat was first indication that they were in that immediate area hence my leaving the scene. One should not deliberately challenge the bears as that idiot did in the Herzog documentary, but one can't be outdoors without some risk. I didn't encourage the encounter, but was prepared and cautious of it.
