Sounds dangerous.  If only there were somewhere where we could get Best 6.5 Creedmore Ammo around here.

Bear spray solves lots of problems. Though sometimes only temporarily.

Jeez, I wouldn't want a mama bear only a thousand feet away from my house with her cubs. That's a recipe for feeling her cubs are being threatened.

Well it's been a few years now and they have only ever threatened our garbage. I wanted to get bear spray but like pepper spray it is not legal here.

Phttt... Just tell the cops the bear dropped it when he ran away. And, was wearing gloves so it's prints weren't on the can. Cops will buy anything bear-related.  :-X

You could get bear-bangers.  I'm not really a fan of them personally though.  We had to use them when I was doing a surveying job for a gas company.  The guy I was with fired the banger too far and it landed behind the bear and went off.  The bear ran away from the sound which meant it ran straight towards us.

Nah, just made sure the truck was between us and it.  It just kept running.

I'm having a hard time processing that BEAR SPRAY is not legal somewhere.  :o That seems like environmentalism running amuck.

Are high powered full metal jacket rounds legal?  ::)

Not a Black Bear thing but this week the Hummingbirds are due back at my feeder. Can't wait!  :bd:

^We've had tons up here after we built a special feeder for them. When I'm on my deck they literally buzz about a foot in front of me. Love the hummingbirds. Some cool colored ones here too.

Lol.  Moved from WNC where bears were common enough and, to me, easily avoided, but had to call 5.0 on a rabid raccoon in my new home's backyard two weeks ago as per regs, you can't use a firearm in city limits.

-Cops were cool and said that I could have popped the critter, but better safe than sorry as I can always just go inside.
