Haha! Thinking about changing my position about carrying bear spray


Oh my!!!

Setting out a trail camera and we watched this big fella on the other side of the river. Definitely the biggest bear I've ever seen

I'm estimating between 7' & 8' standing.

How cool! And you didn't even have to look at an image on your camera after the fact.
I got my camera last week and so far I only have pictures of our deer family, going back and forth to and from the woods to the orchard.  Not worth posting. I'll wait for something interesting that might lurk down in our forest, but it probably won't be a big bruin!
The camera did capture a giant maple tree splitting in half in a windstorm yesterday.  That's kind of interesting. biggrin.gif

Our local bears have just shifted feeding to the apples on the ground this week, you might get lucky if it's that type of orchard.

Regarding your original post and your pic of the coyote climbing a tree, I just witnessed this trick this morning at my place in the Icicle Canyon.  It was around 7:45 AM and a bit drizzly.  A lone coyote came through my "yard" on his morning cruise.  I watched him quietly through the window and saw him jump up a doug fir tree trunk and then push off with his hind legs to gain another 2-3 feet of height - so he was about 5-6 feet above the ground.  He didn't actually climb the tree as much as he made a leap+"dyno" - hoping to grab a squirrel for breakfast.  The squirrel won this round.  I never knew these dogs to this until I saw your photo - now I've seen it first-hand.

Very cool! Now that you posted that, I'm thinking maybe there were some wild turkeys in that tree. I captured several images of a large flock at that very same tree he was climbing.

Very interesting.

Thanks for the report

My curiosity got the best of me. I went back this evening to measure.

Approximately 7'9"

By the way. Can someone identify this tree with blue berries. I'm assuming that's what this bear was interested in. Exactly where he was standing

Saskatoon, aka western serviceberry. Bears find the berries to be a favorite delicacy.

BPG - Amazing! Just saw your older video posts with the bull elk. Really cool how he's so on guard just from the human smell on the cam.  Re your still of the very tall bear standing on hind legs - might it be a grizzly?  Hard to tell with him not in profile to really see the dished face or whether he has a shoulder hump.

Even looking at all the photos on this site - Know the Difference - I can't tell! If it was a griz, that sure would get some people excited!

You've developed a real knack for selecting great cam spots.  More please!  up.gif

Definitely a cinnamon phase black bear. Have images of it crossing the river.
