Bob gave me two game cameras and I set one for video and other for stills. Well I finally got some great footage of my rare Summitville bird " Blackbearasauras" !!


This one he smashes his face and lays down!



Final video from yesterday he smashed station down almost onto himself!!

Some stills. Shot over a few nights. Can see my work truck for morning delivery in background of a few!



This one looks like he sniffed camera! It was moved slightly!

He did some silly things! The first time I got him, he did not touch ANYTHING? Think something scared him off?

If you ever decide he needs to move on then just put some fresh Cheyenne pepper flakes in the food. Don't be down wind and a dust mask is a fairly good idea, you don't want to inhale this stuff.
It won't harm the birds, they don't have taste buds per say or the bear.
The bears pretty neat though.

Had bear for many years now. I take feeders in after first hit. Almost same time every year. You can see I left only one empty or near empty feeder out, he still knocked it over! Lol

Woah!! Great footage there! That must be pretty nuts to have that kind of activity in your yard, I'll bet.

Yes, you certainly do have a visitor there!

Never under estimate the power of a bears sniffer :2cents:
A few moth balls inside the little hut may help disguise the scent :dunno:
He looks to be a good eating size come fall :2th:

Hi Phil! We use ammonia and he seems to disregard the area. Helps that tractors are by it I bet!

Thanks Eric , I guess ammonia would work well , if anything can mess up a sensitive nose ammonia would :cool

I just mentioned moth balls because we use them by the doors and windows at camp at winter close up time so in the spring there is less interesting smells for a hungry bear to want to break in and investigate.
Amazing to clean up after they break in , canned goods like soups and beans have enough scent for them to open and lap up the juices from. Yet the typically ( only happened 3 times at 2 places , so a small sample to judge a pattern by ) will skip the tomato soup cans and rip the others up.

Next week you'll receive notice in the mail he's hired an attorney and suing for injuries sustained on your property due to a poorly secured bird feeder.
