    Went hunting this weekend and took a nice doe Sat morning. Sat evening I had two very large bears come all the way in to the base of my tree. One even chewed on my hoist rope!

    Took video and plenty of pics.

    Hope y'all enjoy the video!

    A friend sent me this just after Christmas. Just thought of it now (our old stomping grounds in BC where I met my wife)

    Watch the videos below the picture (sorry for the adds in the beginning) and you see people walking by on the sidewalk within a few feet of this bear and they don't even notice it! :lol: :lol:
    Gutsy move by the cop to grab it!

    You don't always have to go to the country to find bear up here!

    I was kinda thinking the same thing Perry. That's why I asked him to move on. :mrgreen: Great video BTW of the cop catching the bear. I think they are awesome animals glad he didn't get hurt.

    JP the bear man is what I told my wife too! :lol:

    thanks for that. can you perhaps tell me approximately where the video was shot. we have had some unverified reports of black bears here.

    ps.. do you know of any local source of bee wax down around Baton Rouge? I have a displaced customer(s) that lives there that need some for their cream and soap business?

    Tecumseh, the footage was taken in northeast, Louisiana not too far from the Arkansas state line a little southeast of Bastrop, Louisiana. How much wax do you need and what are you willing to pay per lb? You can PM me if you like with that.
