"bear sausage :P "


So what do you do with the Bear? Chintzier? I think it's a good thing that the Bears are afraid of humans through hunters. I had my run in with the wild bunch and it's better if they have been hunted. Sometimes fifteen twenty bear right outside the  tent. :o Otherwise expect every once in a while,more often,someone gets chowed down. Especially if they smell spicey.

Its not the size of the fish, its the quality and the great experience you have in the prestine wilderness.

I'm sure everyone knows that the best way to deter bears in the wild is to wear little bells around your neck and carry pepper spray.......

However you may not know how to identify the difference between bear scat (poop) and grizzly scat... 



Here's a quick lesson.....

Black bear scat is usually full of semi digested berries.....   

Grizzly scat is usually full of little bells and smells like pepper spray  ;D
