This is a discussion on Bear on my property within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Bear pictures finally working! bear.JPG bear 2.JPG bear 3.JPG bear 4.JPG...
PICTURES UP NOW,
The story was an animal tore down our fence, we thought it might be a bear, so we bought a IR sensor camera from Cabela's and this is what we caught on our camera!
WOW, that camera did a great job, thanks for posting the pics. What are you gonna do now?
When I lived in the "woods" of Western Maine I delt with black bear on a daily basis.
They are a very determined animal. If they want something,they WILL get it. Bird feeder,hummingbird feeder,cats food bowl,trash can on back porch,etc. For the aggressive type bears I used a .45-70. For the normal bears I used amonia,partially diluted with water. But you gotta get it on them. The smell wont work for long. I finally set up a bucket with a trip wire that poured the amonia over the bear.
Someone with bear dogs will work also.With the wardens permission I had a friend with bear dogs come in,take the scent,and run the bear into the next county. They wont return as they will if they are trapped.
Good luck with your problem. And it is a problem. The bear(s) will keep coming until there is no reason for them to come anymore. They will do anything they can do to get to whatever it is that thay want. If you or your family accidently come across them unanounced they will run over you trying to escape. Much worse if sow with cubs or mean spirited republican boar.Advise that you notify the warden to start the paperwork trail. Unfortunately, you might have to kill the bear if the wardens take a ho-hum attitude. Good Luck ---------
I think that is awsome..! If he's not a problem that is... If he is a problem, wouldn't a long string of "Lady Finger" firecrackers give him a scare he won't soon forget?

Shoot for the gut. That way it will run off and die and not drop dead on your property.

A wounded bear is a very dangerous creature. If this thing doesn't die within a relatively short time, there is no telling what sort of damage it could do to your, or someone elses, family. If you have to kill it, kill it. If the warden has a problem with it, go rent a bobcat and bury it. Shoot shovel and shut up.Originally Posted by freakshow10mm
How much was the camera? Does it use a flash or just takes the pictures? How do you mount it? Can it be mounted on a house? Are they weather proof?
(and yes, I am very curious about them now since I've seen the type of picture they take (excellent) and now I want to have to use to catch the bums/thieves around the area.
I just wanna know... When is the invitational BBQ dinner??

They don't use flash. WEll the one's ive seen dont. They use Infa Red technology. Pretty effective and weather proof (depending on the weather).
