Elk Camp: Bear!

Folks, I'm calling in from elk camp again this week.  The numbers of black bear again this year are just tremendous!  We've had some close encounters, and that's enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.  

Cindee seemed to get kind of worried when I was telling her about the "up close and personals" we've been having, especially when I told her it is not legal to carry a firearm during archery season.  

I have a buddy who put a blunt on his arrow the other day when a bear got a little close, it stunned the bear for a few seconds, he spun in circles, and then went crashing down the mountain breaking off four-inch aspens on his way down.  

I've sent a couple pictures for you to enjoy.  

I'm keeping an eye out, and having the time of my life!  

Until next week, enjoy the great outdoors!
