If there's anything that will get a hiker going it's bad news bears.
Bears aren't stupid, but niether are they smart in a people world, or perhaps
more correctly people aren't very smart in a bear world.. In my opinion,
bear bagging is the worst one can do. It's an invitation to bears for free
goodies, hanging in the wind. I insist on keeping my food with me (sleeping
with it) because I need it more then the bear.
Any bear that frequents a shelter needs a large rock off the head, either
that or eventually they'll get a bullet.
