“There is an old Native American saying, "If a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle saw it. The deer heard it. The bear smelled it." This is the crux of what we will be covering in this article when we talk about bears and bear safety and that is the one crucial, pivotal point that we will always return to regarding bears: bear attractants. Bears are attracted by food smells, chemical odors and even unfamiliar odors. …”

I hope you saw a bear up close once.

I've been up close with black bears many, many times, Vince. What's your point?

Did see some black bears this past week. One was very strange looking with long grey hair. I have never seen that color before. And no, it was not an opossum. Camera battery dead unfortunately.
