Looking for Anti Bear spray help.
The full time resident on the property where my Camp is located has had some
" WALK THRU" visits from a large male bruin fairly close to the house, most food sources have been removed IE: Bird feeders, edible garbage etc. They put out food for barn cats in the early eve and in the morning also. Would like to have some suggestions to aviod a confrontation.
Added Info there are 2 seasonal Campgrounds (PRIVATE) on each side of the property and MR Bear may have their dumpsters in mind and house is on the way.
Thanks in advance for your help
Not to be IGERNANT but I wouldn't care if the bear ATE ALL THE CAMPGROUND FOLKS LOL. Just dont want any thing to happen at near my friends place. To Ron M maybe we can do something in the Fall if we can get several LARGE YOUNG FOLKS TO DRAG HIM OUT!!
DCNR is advising hikers and campers to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field. They advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. They also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear.
Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells like pepper.
