Every once in a while the cubs would make a squeal and she would stand up on her hind legs to try and see what was up... ya see, bears can't see jack really. Then go back to eating once again.


So lol .. No Zoo.. No wire.. No fences.. Just common ground had by all.

Maybe not nuts Pondrader, but I would say lucky. My understanding is that while bears don't see all that well, their sense of smell is excellent and their hearing is more than enough to know you were that close. Those are great shots and you are certainly more brave than I would be. -? Stay safe and keep up the excellent shots.

Stay safe and perhaps talk to some wildlife experts on how to work with bears. Don't take any chances!

Thank you Jeff... I would really enjoy touring with you, but sadly I can't do it. Besides, you say "come on down".

I am already down from you Jeff! I live in Indiana! It might be better weather than we are having right now as it is s'posed to get really hot this weekend.
