    me neither bears are faster than they look and they'll rip your balls off without any hesitation.

    Polar bears are the worst.

    Two amazing facts about polar bears 1. They are all left handed 2. when hunting seal they will lie down in the ice and cover their noses so they are completely comoflauged.

    LOL. That's a remote camera. There's no one there running it. The Forest Service just knows those are trees bears use to scratch themselves on by all the hair and the marks on them, so they set up a camera that's activated by motion, and it starts filming whenever a bear shows up and starts to scratch.

    It's kinda funny though that the bears can sense they are being filmed. You can see them look in the direction of the camera and then get down and leave. It must make some kind of noise they can hear.

    That was a good find, Mitzs.

    Thats why I fig it was a person and not a camera. I just thought he was catching a whiff of them now and again.

    I don't know if you've ever run into a bear out in the woods, but they are naturally pretty human-shy. If they even catch a whiff of human scent they are gone.

    I almost literally ran into one out fishing one time. I was walking down an abandoned logging road that had been sitting unused long enough that there were a few trees about 12-14 ft tall growing in it. I heard something coming down the hill above me so I stopped under the tree to see what it was. A black bear came out of woods about 30 yards from me and was sniffing the air and looking around. Bears have really bad eyesight so he couldn't see me, but he was very nervous from being able to smell me.

    I let a little "Woof" at about the same level as my normal speaking voice and that bear somersaulted backwards up the hill and took off running. I could hear him for several minutes breaking limbs and brush down as he ran.

    Now, I wouldn't do that with a she bear with cubs or a Grizzly as that would be plain old asking for trouble. But a single black or brown bear in an area where bears are hunted will be the first to run, at least that's always been my experience with them.

    I have had a couple of other close encounters with bears while picking huckleberrys as a kid in Montana back in the late 50's and early 60's too. Those bears and I met with each of us going the opposite way around big bushes. I don't know that they ran as fast as I did, but I know they went in the opposite direction.
