He says the grizzly stood on his hind legs and roared, and before he knew it he was being attacked. Luckily, he was able to get his gun from his shoulder and was able to kill the bear with two shots.

However, his jaw was broken in the brawl, and he suffered a number of deep lacerations on his face and body. He was able to walk to camp, from where he was airlifted to Fort Nelson and later transported to a hospital in Edmonton. In an interview with the CBC, Boyes says he is recovering well, and the incident has not turned him off hunting.

The attack follows one on September 5 in Klouachesi Lake and another on September 18 near Houston. Both victims are recovering.
