This is the time of year grizzly bears are engaged in hyperphagia, meaning that they are eating voraciously in order to store up fat for winter hibernation.  Defenders of Wildlife’s Erin Edge says the bears don’t really care if it’s their traditional nuts and berries or someone’s chickens or apple orchard.  Consequently,Edge says, people are seeking more ways to keep them off their properties.  One method that is now available is an electrified fence, which Edge says serves as a quick lesson for the bears, even hungry ones, to stay away.  Edge adds that there are guidelines for using such fences which are available online.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
