The family of a 39-year-old hunter killed by a wounded grizzly bear says he yelled out to draw the 400-pound male bear toward him, in an effort to keep it from attacking his young hunting partner.

Steve Stevenson’s mom, Janet Price, says after her son yelled the bear swung around and attacked him instead.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office in Montana says Stevenson, of Winnemucca, Nev., died Friday after 20-year-old Ty Bell wounded what he thought was a black bear. The two men then tracked it into thick cover along the Idaho-Montana border where it attacked at about 10 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say Bell used his cell phone to call for help after the attack, but Stevenson died from his injuries in the remote area.
