Best to have a ladder stand, they can't see well, but do have great sense of smell & good ears. You'll enjoy watching their inter action and personalities. I have only ever brought them blk bear in with bait, but have stalked grizz; which you have to get close enough to kill them. All bear will be found in berries or eating migrating fish this time of year.
Umm when I was stationed in Alaska, I was told a grizz will still kill you (while charging) even though you give it a head shot. I was told to shoot it in the hip(imobilizing it) then take a kill shot. Good advice or no???
