    After my few brief trips that I had up North, I think it gets into your blood and you just can't wait to go again. If you just take a moment and talk with any of the people that live there you realize why they do.

    It's the pissed off female ones you really have to worry about. Of course that applies to humans as well.

    Pizzly Bears are old news

    This doesn't surprise me at all.

    Grizzlies will screw anything, ... they are the sluts of the bear world.

    There is a poll going around among Canadian biologists requesting that the Federal Government change the Latin name of the Grizzly Bear from Ursus Actos Horribilis to Cunnus Ursa.

    Ranchers in both Montana and Wyoming have publicly stated that they will support the name change.

    Being grizzlies they are either going to screw it or kill it. Or kill it and then screw it. Grizzlies don't care.

    We can definitely share some stories! Here is one ...on one of those sand bars west of the Island I was camped on and had a polar bear in camp...I scared it so hard that when it was running away(one has to see a polar bear running from behind) and it was shitting like a high pressure water hose!

    Out of curiosity, how does one scare a polar bear?

    on ALL my Bear potential guided trips always had bear bangers(rarely used) and a 12ga w/slugs(never used) that Maritimus in question was startled by my waving a jacket. I must admit I did have a good laugh.

    You don't. It can kill anything it comes across in the wild and it knows it. It is an apex predator and anything that moves is food for him.

    No doubt a good laugh was in order, though I'd rather rely on the first two options. Many thanks!
