    pack it in pack it out. By the way a 550# bear was caught in Del Rio (right near Hot Springs) Dec. 28th. Theres a picture in the local paper. How much more proof do you need?

    I know it must be hard to fathom such an amazing coinsidence. The AT runs through the black bears habitat and many bears happen to be killed/seen near the trail. OMG someone call Riplies. I thought for sure I'd be more likely to see black bears hanging out on Florida beaches. Slow, you have quite the apt name. I'd continue this battle of wits were having but I can see you are unarmed. Time to put the bear weight debate to rest.

    I've been back and forth with Slow on this one -- it's like arguing with a tape recorder. I think he knows his logic is flawed (by which i mean ridiculous).

    The way to tell the difference between a grizzly bear and a black bear is to climb a tree.

    If the bear knocks the tree down and eats you, it's a grizzly bear.
    If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black bear.

    Now that's funny. Also Grizzly bear poop smells like peper spray and has little bells in it.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight; your tactics suck.

    Hey slow, you're right there are no 400 lb bears anywhere on the east coast -- now give it a rest.

    No, no, no, John. Slow concedes that 400-lb bears exist on the east coast. His point -- it seems -- is that they all (all the big ones ) avoid the narrow corridor surrounding the AT.

    Hey Slow: always wanted to know your reason here. Got one?

    Last night a dog tried to bite me as I walked in my neighborhood. Tried to take a bite out of my ankle. I've seen bears, but never had one try to bite me.

    GA DNR at the checking station for the GA bears I referenced. All bears taken in Ga are required to be weighed by a game official. They do the same with road kill bears, of which there are several every year.
