    Two roads diverged in a wood, and Ió
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    I can't think of a thing to add. I have gotten many laughs off the ones here now. Plus I learned that using a outhouse around polar bears can be fatal. I don't know how that will come in handy here in Missouri, but it is always good to know.

    A new sticky "Outhouse Guns".

    Reminds me of back in the 80s, I met my friend's uncle who went all outback Alaska, hunting guide, gold miner, bush pilot... He was discussing his guns and what purpose he used each for. He mentioned that he always carried a 8" Ruger Blackhawk every where, even to the outhouse. We impressionable teens said of course 'that is to protect you from bears'. His reply "Hell no. I'm in Kodiak country. This popgun would only piss those bears off. It is in case I cannot run back to the cabin I can put the barrel in my mouth, pull the trigger and make things easier for me and the bear."

    I never go out in the woods without being armed sufficient for bear. He should have done the same. Fortunately, a friend was armed and dispatched the critter.

    The bears at a good friends hunting cabin are a little too friendly...

    Far too often we've had someone stroll outside to release a beer back into the wild and find a good sized black bear hanging out by the crapper (or whatever convenient bush the poor guys were planning on using).

    I've taken to carrying my 6" S&W .41 mag and a good flashlight while outside at camp.

    I'll bet just the opposite happened...I'd be willing to bet, you couldn't have put a greasy toothpick up his butt with a sledgehammer.

    At least this answers the age old question..."Does a bear crap in the woods?"
    Apparently they prefer outhouses, and are not at all patient about waiting their turn.
    Too bad it wasn't a two-holer, that would be one Canadian with a good story to tell.

    Not if they can find a Ranger Station or outhouse.

    Kind of makes me wonder what he took to the outhouse with him? Did he plan on being here a while and pack a lunch? Every time I have come on a bear the last thing they wanted was anything to do with people and they beat feet into the woods, I have several pictures of trees with the occasional bear butt trying to get pictures of them. Maybe Canadian black bears are braver than WI black bears.

    I close the door in my house! Guess he learned a good lesson about leaving the door ajar!
