While we are on the topic of bears or dangerous animals in general. We were camping at Airport flats 7-8 though the 11. We killed 3 baby rattle snacks in the camp. So keep an eye out everyone where ever you are up there cause it is snake season also!

Yea, Yea....This should come up every season because we get the same issue every year.

They are hungry this year and causing problems everywhere.
My G-mas house in Georgetown has one that keeps trying to get in her house and here is a pic from my trail camera the other night in my back yard.
Both are mom's with baby's.

The little one down in the springs was busy and brave. Hit almost every campsite from Dirty Dozen to the other side of Mark's cabin. Did not get much from us but sure made a mess of the 90wt. Funny, bear never bothered our site again after chewing on all my 90wt.
Sorry I missed ya Crash, would have liked to see you guys.

Nice shot

Almost ran one over a huge one the other morning (~10am!!) as it ran into my backyard no tracks or shit I could find to see where he went off too though.

I need to get some batteries back in my game camera

Guess I should add to this by saying we recently killed a large rattler too. They are out and they are ACTIVE this year. Mid-day heat this one was scooting along my driveway until my puppy almost become lunch

The bears, rattlers, and gophers are out this year

My wife and I got hit at Buck on Thursday night....Yogi got my action packer and my cooler.....He was up to my hip (I'm 6'7") big bastard. We first were awakened by him around 1 am. He returned multiple times between 1 and 530 am. Thank you to everyone that gave us some food, we thought after that our trip was a wrap but because of all the great people on the con' we got to enjoy our whole trip like planned......

Well hopefully no one gets hurt.

Those that have spotted Yogi. Are you guys hanging your coolers from a tree or anything like that?

(knock on wood) we have never had an issue with bears, but sounds like there is a good chance we will see yogi in 3 weeks.

Question: I've heard mixed sayings about coolers in the back of truck beds, with a tonneu cover/camper shell.

Still ok under that, or should everything still be hanged?

Yeah he was a beautiful cinnimon color and he would've made a great rug. He couldn't have cared less that we were there.

I took a pic of my buddy and his kid with the bear in the background.

What a great picture. Should have it printed full size and give it to him in a frame to hang on the wall. Right on.
