Talked w/ our guide in Canada and was told that this past Saturday while making his rounds to the baits he was confronted by a couple bears and one even charged halfway in on him. He said he started making alot of noise and waving around like a madman while backing up slowly. It worked and he made it back to the truck safely.

He had called and said a month ago that the bears were hitting the baits more aggresively than usual this year and that things should be good. Well, I don't know what to think about good now?! Anyway I've heard that they had a not so good berry crop this year and that most berries are almost gone already making the bears rather hungry and protective of bait sites.

By the way our guide has been guiding bear hunts since the 70's and says this is the first time this has happened. Hopefully the last..:eek:

Well regardless I'm still looking forward to a great hunt and a great time w/ friends. Come on Aug. 25th:wave:

I thought you were just suppose to pack your mag light and wack them on the nose if they came after you. That my be what they tell you to do but I think I would pack a 44 mag instead.

It don't really make me too uneasy except I just watched a show on Brown Bears on Kodiak Island and what happened there in '99 when the berry crop was bad and the bears were more or less starving....Just makes you think of the hint of danger a little more....
