i really dont think an adult bear would be harder to scare off.

I do know that black bears aren't as aggressive as the grizzly bears and I do believe their main diet is like twigs and berries, not to much meat (I saw a growing up black bear and they ged the baby and adult bears fruits and veggies, no meat)

I think there are bear horns out there, that will scare the bears off. I dont have one though.

Well then im glad we dont have grizzlies around here. I wonder what Gypsy would do if she saw one, she would probably have made up her mind about running before we could try and scare the bear off.

From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north

Yes, but we see deer in our yards. And they are not "scary" like a bear, wolf, rabid dog, moose. So they dont really count as to if someone has seen a scary wild animal.

The BO has seen two bears at the hay barn (where most of the trails are) we see bear poop every where also. But so far no one has seen one while riding.
I would probably pee my pants if I saw one.
The bobcat came down out of the tree, then the domestic cat came down and ran in the same direction as the bobcat stupid kitty
Coyotes don't bother us, but the holes they dig can be leg breakers. Vida has stepped down into more than one and it always freaks me out. They dig fairly large deep holes.

Yah that cat isnt to bright!

I havent had any problems with coyotes digging up holes. We've never come across any, thank God. That would be scary.

Aw, deer don't count?! LOL. I've seen sooo many of those, ahaha. Like every time I go on a trail...deer alert, haha. I haven't really seen anything else except a fox once or twice. Not too exciting if 'ya ask me!

Ride more, worry less.

We've seen coyotes, bobcats, pine martins (what a racket they make!), hawks flying straight for us, owls, tons of turkeys, fox, porcupine and moose. As of yet only the fresh tracks of cougar, and recently bear tracks. Seen plenty of bear scat last fall so I imagine sooner or later we'll run into it. So far nothing has fazed T (Walka was a bit freaked by the pine martin's screeching), but we'll see this season!
