Are You Ready For Da bears while out fishing?
"Warning: In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert of bears while in the field. We advise outdoorsmen to wear noisy little bells on their clothing, so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear.It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear manure: Black bear manure is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear manure has little bells in it and smells like pepper."
All I can say is that most Rivers across the country have the chance of having a Furry 4 legged fisherman come your way. Whether it was last Fall here in Colorado in North Park or 2 Fall's ago in Alaska. My Pal Narhwal and I had a fun run in with a big brown bear streamside and just a few feet away I shreaked in fear and "Luckily"I chased her towards my Boy....thanks Narwhal for taking one for the Team on the Kenai!!!
