The pics are cropped some different, but seems the bear is about the same size as the fawn. The fawn looks friendlier. ;)

Today was pretty fun. Two of my great nephews are up for the first time from the Indianapolis area. They are staying with my Sister Lynda, their Grandma, for two weeks and she brought them up to the cabin. I put the older one on the quad for his first time and he loved it. We went to explore one of my favorite places, a local trout stream about a mile from my place in the U.P.  the first thing we saw when we got out of the truck was a male ruffed grouse in full dance mode. By the time I got my camera out, he was on his way into the woods, where I followed him and got a short video.

 





The boys were thrilled with the little trip we took into the eastern U.P. woods. I hope I'm not in trouble when they tell their mom how they want to move to Michigan. :)  I sure love it when I am up here. It's going to be a fine Bear season this year whether I get a bear or not if pre-season scouting is any kind of indicator. 8)

Great pictures Jeff. Reminds me of home. I haven't seen a grouse since I moved down here. He was sure putting on the moxie wasn't he? All swelled up and strutting. Would have been cool if you could have caught him drumming. Those are tasty little birds those grouse. I miss them.

We took them out to lake Huron Sunday night to cool down and get cleaned up. They were plenty dirty.  :) They had several firsts this past week, including riding ATV's (The older one got to drive a bit), shooting firearms, seeing the Soo Locks and seeing some Bear sign (No bear though), and meeting their great Uncle Jeff for the first time.   I have some video of where we had them shooting at some soup cans. :)

Beenthere-

She was alone, inside an enclosure, feeding 2 wild bears, and this is reported as a bear attack?  Shouldn't she have been considered "on the menu"?  Sounds like she may have a better outcome than the Connecticut lady with the chimp.  Hard to understand, really.  On TV, they always look so fluffy and cute.
