I saw these fresh black bear prints on a trail I was on in South Western WI, which isnt exactly bear territory to being with - mostly just cows and corn.

Back a couple years ago, my dad and I took an impromptu trip down to Yellowstone Park. We hiked in on a trail for about 2 miles then turned around at the Forest Service cabin. As we backtracked, we saw a set of grizzly prints overlapping our own. Every single hair on the back of my neck stood straight on end! We never saw or heard the bear, but the tracks were following ours EXACTLY, sometimes even covering our own boot prints in the snow. Needless to say, from that point, we hauled *** back to the car! I have pictures of the tracks somewhere around here, but they were 13-14" from heel to claw. Thats 4 sizes larger than what I wear, and 2 bigger than my dads. One big bear, I tell ya what!

Black bears aren't too bad though. From what I've heard, a good deal of them are even scared of people. Now Kodiaks and brown bears, not only are they braver but also larger than black bears. Those are the one's you don't want to mess with.

Get between mama black bear and her cubs and tell yourself that.


I'm not messing with any bears, not even Yogi and Boo Boo!

okay I'll settle for a good chipmunk story...
I know somebody's seen something we've not heard about yet.

Years ago me, my gf, and a few other friends went to the blue ridge mountains. We came around a curb and there were two black bear cubs playing just off the side of the road. They wanted to stop and pet them so I pulled over and said "okay, y'all have at it but I'm not getting out of the car." They looked at me and said "really? But they're so cute." I said " yes, they are so get out and play with them, I'll be sitting right here. Just know Mama bear isn't far away and when she comes out of the woods I'm flooring it whether y'all are in the car or not!"

They decided against playing with the cubs.

haha yeah, same thing with cows and people that come over to my house. They are cute but so are wolves. I am not going out in the field with them without some equipment.

Gotta be careful where you wheel here meth labs EVERYWHERE. We even had the police in our school warning us and telling us what to do if we were to come across one.

West side of the upper peninsula great people here but it's secluded so we get the meth labs like no other. Only see them come out a couple times a year freaky lookin. There's regular people here and theirs weird people. You don't notice the wierd ones until you stay awhile.
