I guess I can contribute in a less meaningful way. I was out in the woods near Squamish, BC (if anyone knows where that is), probably about 30 clicks outside of town limits, no phone reception. I brought two new shooters and my 30-06, a 10/22 and an 870.
I guess somebody flagged down a cop and told him we were shooting (maybe campers or something, we were being legal but whatever...) so he pulled us over as we left.
He pulled us over by a bush where a young black bear was eating berries. I said, "oh be careful, there's a [black] bear" which he replied, "there was a grizzly watching you shoot"
I guess open carry prevented that!
