Bear Troubles

Postby Greg Wile » Sun Jun 05, 2005 11:08 am

Here in NS we don't seem to get alot of press about problem bears but they do on occasion cause some head aches for our residents. I heard that a bear in the province had to be put down after it had killed 2 calves and then attaced a full grown cow breaking the cows back. This apparently happend Thursday or Friday June 2nd or 3rd. Yesterday I was at a camp on North Lake Anna. Co. and saw first hand what a bear did to it trying to get at food left inside. The bear had torn a hole through the back wall big enough to get in and have his meal. From the size of the claw marks and hight of them on the outside of the camp I would judge that this bear was a juvenile. We do have a good number of Black Bear in our province with some going over 500 lbs. Not many people hunt them and I don't know of that many Bear Hunting guides operating in the province but if all goes well there will be 1 more in NS this year.

Thanks for the support. Mybe when I get things going good I'll be able to swap a bear hunt for some other type of hunting like for hogs or elk.

More bears in the news yesterday. And at the doctors office people were complaining about bears in their areas comming up on their decks and getting into garbage etc... Then when we got in to see the doc he wanted to know if I would come up and get rid of some wood chucks that have invaded his lawn and gardens. I could be busy all the time with animal control, man am I glad I got out of that as a side line, all hours of the day and night plus a full time job. It was just too much.

I was watching the outdoor channel yesterday and three guys were out sitting calling turkies in and a bear walked right in to about 10 FEET until one of the guys moved.

Then the bear just slowly turned away and slowly walked away.

I was out Elk hunting and walked onto one about 15 feet away. Scared the Stuff out of both of us. But he was more scared and treed himself.

To bad I missed him IN THE TREE :pissed: :pissed: :pissed:
