The thought of coming into contact with a grizzly bear or wolf is frightening, would you agree? Getting to see them in the wild (at a safe distance, of course) is a wish that many people make when visiting certain places around Wyoming.

Just like anything in life, the more you do something, the better your results will be. If you don't believe me, ask Stan Mills.

Stan is an avid hiker, outdoor lover and wildlife enthusiast in the Greater Yellowstone Area. Stan heads out and hikes around Yellowstone and documents his journey on video and with pictures.

I've followed Stan's adventures for quite a while now and he catches extraordinary sights and sounds on his videos, proving the statement.

His YouTube channel is full of videos showing him hiking around Yellowstone, giving you the trails and layout of the land. Some of his encounters are hair-raising and will leave even the most skilled hiker with the shakes. Including a 6 grizzly in 15 minutes encounter on one of his most resent videos.

Take a look.

Stan is always a 'safety first' guy and is always giving safety tips and methods to avoid trouble. In this video he may've been a little overwhelmed and realized he could've been had serious issues.

In most of his videos, he's able to catch the wildlife from a safe distance that makes you feel a little more comfortable than the video above.

This video is one from a few years back that he re-edited and published to show some wolves and grizzly just doing what they do. It's cool to see them acting natural and having the opportunity to basically be a fly on the wall.

10 Photos of Bears I Saw In the Wild

I was privileged to take a trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park with guys that have been there before to look for bears. That experience paid huge dividends. I am nowhere close to being a professional photographer, but getting these bear shots was a huge thrill.
