Alaskan State Troopers said Allen Dewitt Minish, of Chitna, was surveying a wooded area near Gulkana on Tuesday when he encountered the brown bear.
Minish told Alaska's News Source that despite trying to hide in some shrubs, the bear charged toward him.
"He lunged, grabbed my head, took the first bite, relaxed, and took the second bite, that was stronger, and that's when he cracked all the bones and part of my head," he told the publication, adding that there was a point the bear's mouth was over his head.
The bear eventually walked away, and Minish called 911.
Minish was flown to Anchorage hospital, where he was treated for serious injuries, including puncture wounds and lacerations to his head, state troopers said.
The bear has not been found, troopers said.
