Well, gol danged, Sorch.... Like you expect me to go tell the P-Vine all this stuff... Like never go out without pepper spray 'er the shotgun...

No way... You tell her!!! I will tell ya this if them bears get into her gardens she gonna put a mean whuppin' on'um...

(No, she isn't, Bobert.... She's gonna send yer shinny butt out there with the pepper spray and the shotgun...)

Like I said...

Seems the folks who we are buyin' the place from had a veggie garden... Yeah it was fenced in and kinda close to the house and they didn't say nuthin' 'bout the bears messin' wid it... But they put in some corn on the 8 acre field below the house and they said the bears were in it constantly???

Looks like I got my work cut out fir me but...

... while Iz quietly armin' to fight the bears don't nobody let the P-Vine read what Sorcha just said....

Yes, secure your garbage cans VERY well, get a can of pepper spray or Mace. NEVER EVER confront a bear. Blacks are not as agressive as Grizzlies, but don't count on it. NEVER EVER leave picnic food outside. Might be a wise idea to just not picnic.

They will come looking for food. If they don't find any for several visits they will probably leave you alone. Don't count on it.....the most predictable thing about bears is that they are Un predictable.

Don't plant any kind of garden, esp berries. You'll get them in spades...bears are truly Omnivorous. Carry pepper spray/Mace on your person AT ALL TIMES. There are NO bear proof garden fences.

Never ever leave any edible food outside for very long, inside a cooler or else. Bears like beer too.

NEVER advance at a bear. Sometimes, yelling and waving your arms will scare them away...notice I said 'sometimes' .......

You probably can't outrun a bear....be alert for spots you can get to in a pinch...this does NOT include tents or plate glass windows.

DO NOT EVER FEED THE BEARS!!!!! They are NOT 'cute domestic critters'

But, really, blacks (and their other colors) are not nearly as dangerous as the Griz.

Seal your trash cans up tight, buddy, mebbe lock 'em up at night.

They are mostly food-driven, as I understand it.

Don't leave any dead rabbits on your porch and such....

As some of you may know this ol' Wes Ginny hillbilly is about to become a Va. hillbilly but in a more remote area and have learned that there are black bears livin' in the same area.... Like I've seen 'um once when drivin' on Skyline Drive, which is a couple thousand feet up the mountain from were we will be, but I ain't never lived wid 'um like comin' into yer back yard???!!!

So...

.... anyone ever lived in an area where they was purdu common? An' if so,, lets say Iz back in the equipement shed tinkerin' on my ol' Katmann Ghia and look out an' there a danged black bear 20 feet from me, like, other than get in the car and roll the windows up, what else should I do...

An' the P-Vine will be out gardenin' and stuff...

Like what are these bears realy like to live with???

Heck, I know all baout deer... Heck, there's prolly a couple in the back yard now... but bears????

Help!!!
