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!
Apparently bears are smarter than humans
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity
