Had a moment of creative inspiration, when a lot of people are telling me about bears getting into their garbage around here lately: Took one of those party poppers, the ones where you pull the string, and streamers come out. Dumped the streamers out, loaded about 2 spoons of Superhot Cayenne inside, and put the cardboard lid back on. Waterproofed the cardboard and string with some wood glue, spliced a longer string on, and wrapped half a strip of bacon around it, tied with another string. Gave it to the barmaid at the Am.Legion, who has a daily bear problem, told her to tie it to a tree branch, higher than the local dogs can jump. Eagerly awaiting the results---I can picture the bear biting on the bacon, and getting an instant cayenne pepper mouthful. Would make a good video.
PS: Yes we have bears in Bearsville!

In places in Australia they put deternators inside of spuds and lay them out for feral pig control. When porky bites down on said spud the det removes his head.
They use this in place of laying 1080 baits were there is a risk of it getting into the water table etc

I'd pay to see that!

smash a glass jar, and stick it in a ball of ground meat. It's not real fast, but it is 100% effective. Especially on wolves...

Damn!, that would be almost as much fun as feeding Alka-Selzers to sea gulls.

Ground glass is an extremely cruel and painful death. I don't hate anything in nature bad enough to do that. Shame on anyone for treating a wild animal like that.


velocity is like a new car, always losing value.
BC is like diamonds, holding value forever.

You obviously have not had wolves introduced in to your hunting area.

Take my two ex wives along and when the bear is sighted just mention that their spousal support will be a week late.
The bear won't stand a chance.

When I was up in Alaska bear hunting my guide told me for problem bears some people would wrap bacon around a can of Raid.


I hunt, not to kill, but in order not to have played golf....

A good DIY handload works wonders in close quarters..

I can't imagine how many hickers, Idaho boyscouts, fishermen, Easter egg hunters a bear with a belly full of glass would eat before expiring!

But if you insist then for Petes sakes do it up in Ketchum and Sun Valley where all the crying liberals live, that's allowable! rotflmo

Had a Grizzly here, broke into a forestry cabin and ate a 5 gallon pail of white paint. Next stop was a trapper's cabin, down river, leaving white cow pies everywhere. Smiler
