Thread Name: BS: Livin' with Black Bears Question....
Subject: RE: BS: Livin' with Black Bears Question....
I understand living with


bears....even Grizzley and Polar.

Blacks I cannot speak-for.

Most state DFG will use "cherry-bombs" "m-80's" to discourage the bears from the immediate area .... before trapping.

Bottom line - keep ALL smellables (soap, food, drinks, cigars, deoderant, gum and candy) locked in a tight bear-resistant, sealed container.

Trapping is live - and transport to their wilderness point of oragin is swift....


Consider it like illegal-immigrants - remove the tantalizing-treat - and they won't be around.
