In these situations, I believe the bears learn pretty quickly to avoid humans because humans are a danger to them. And then there are those bears that are used to people, but the people treat them like they are Gods and that they untouchable immortals or something. This is the case with the Anchorage bears IMO. These bears learn pretty quickly that they can get away with murder (literally). It's these bears that are the most dangerous IMO.
    I think yew be right.

I've put three (3) on my animal at night if I have too leave them and/or use them periodically around camp after lights out, especially IF I KNOW there's a bear around. In the AM when I'm looking for sign, I've found it, but I haven't had a bear get much closer then 20-30yds when using them. A guy told me a few years back about them and he swears by it. I tried it and so far, I think they might actually work. My .02...
    That kinda light just might work. I was talking about just a plain light.

    I've got a cupla flashlights with the strobe option. Until recently, I didn't know what they were for. I thought it was for signalling. It's a little confusing, how many pushes or half pushes on the switch to get it into play.

    Thanks for the info.

    Discovered that prayer helps sometimes. Also what a penis sheath looks like a few inches from my forehead. And what big claws and big back feet look like, when looking down at the top from 16-18 inches. He did not smell at all.....actually smelled clean, like freshly showered. There was a lot of time to notice things, when waiting for a horrific death.

    You sure it wasn't Bigfoot? JK. I have been charged by bears a few times but so far I haven't been pounced on. One of them I killed with a .44 magnum and it dropped right by my feet. Other times I was at work logging and unarmed. My observation is that bears are most unpredictable when they are breeding in the spring.
