    That’s a big bear. The thing I noticed is he’s still cautious walking up to the bait. The camera flash startles him two times. He’s definitely king of the jungle, but he probably got that way by being cautious. I guess the theory of bears not being nocturnal is blown to shit.

    I'd check on a bee keeping forum. Those guys will have a pretty good idea what works for bears.

    Same as here at home but I don't know what they are using but whatever it is it seems to work. I know my electric fencer don't keep the bears out but does keep the cows in.

    Great stuff here, how heavy are they, how long to they last on a charge, how do they react to cold and or wet conditions?

    portable fencers that runs on D cell batteries are available and solar powered too. the trick is to run 2- or 3-wire fence with both +positive and -negative so contact is insured
    Relaying on the -neg ground coming through foot contact can be a problem

    A cheap noise maker can be made with a $5 personal safety alarm and a long string, a cheap fly reel spooled up with flyline backing works good
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC
