    Default On The Lighter Side

    I came home this afternoon to a car parked with it's flashers on near my driveway. I slowed down and turned in my driveway just as the owner of the vehicle tried to take a picture of a black bear attacking a whitetail deer.

    I move my black bear target every year and even change the color phase once a year. It sure catches peoples interest at times. The first year I think the score was 57 locals and 109 tourists stopping to look.

    Dave,

    Thanks for the laugh. I've had a few neighbors stop and check out my black bear too. once came home to a car parked in my drive way watching the bear - they asked me if it was real. A few years back I had my whole herd of 3-D's out, a black bear, a whitetail deer, a coyote and a woodchuck. A cow moose came in the yard with a calf and decided that the bear had to go - she kicked him into the brush. Proud of herself she then decided to take out the others too - still don't understand what she had against the wood chuck!

    last year I had a small black bear frequenting my yard hanging out a bit too much. Out of curiosity I put my black bear right where the bear comes out of the brush on the game path. It was pretty funny, he took one look and ran the other way!

    My brother used too put farmers with there britches down in front of the "old lady weeding in the garden" cut outs that were around about 25-30 years ago. He'd do it in the middle of the night, always wondered what folks thought when they drove by Martha's place and got a free wooden cut out porn show.

    He and a friend also once cut and reset corn stalks so it appeared that the road gradually disappeared into the corn field, he had about 10 people turn around before some one finally just drove through.

    Haven't seen this behavior in Alaska but I was fishing in northern Ontario once when a noise brought everyone out of there cabins. Sounded like a thrasher moving through a glass factory. I swung open the door of my little cabin to find a moose destroying a Geo Metro! That bull tore into that little car with a viciousness I've not seen before or since.
