Or perhaps the bear was watching over Jeff's shoulder from another window... which would explain why Jeff never saw him in front.  ;)
So, how did I end up here anyway?

The last 2 years at Elk camp my grand dad was recovering from cancer so he stayed at the camp while we all went out.  He told me at 11:00 to get up, walk around, eat some of my lunch, take a good stretch, walk out as far as I could see from where I had set up to check for an elk hanging out just outside of where I could see. 

Both years he shot an elk at camp between 11:15 and 11:30.   :D

I'm still dealing with a couple of bears around the house.  Finally went down yesterday in the pouring down rain and picked the last of the apples they have been working on.  Today I go down and they have pulled the cap off the pipe that covers my drain field distribution valves.  This thing is two feet in diameter and screwed down, they just flipped it off.  Based on the sign, appears to be one big one, one small one.

They are using trail up the hillside behind the house, accesses thousands of acres of timber.  Beginning to wonder if I shouldn't start packing, I hike up there nearly every day.  Can't tell how far up they travel during the day.

Dont attribute irritating behavior to malevolence when mere stupidity will suffice as an explanation.

Jeff needs to bear hunt close to home!

One of my clients told me today that a farmer near Big Rapids, MI got this bear last Friday with the combine. He was combining corn in a neighbor's field and fell into a big hole. The combine was stuck, and the hole was about 5 feet deep. He thought that it was a badger hole until a big black paw came out and pretty soon a head appeared.

The bear was trying to dig out from under the wheel but could not get out. They then knew for sure that it was no badger and he wasn't very happy either.

The DNR told them to shoot it. It dressed out at 287 pounds, and was a male.

How's that for bad luck.You're having a well deserved nap and some farmer runs you over but some how you manage to survive.At first you're irritated but then you remember to count your blessings because you survived a combine accident for Pete's sake. whiteflag_smiley

In October there was a bear den in the middle of our thinning operations. But, he never appeared. It was probably too early, but I would think he would be hanging around close.  :o
