We live in bear country, so encounters with black bears are not uncommon. We have often seen bears during our hikes and on our land. One even climbed the tree right beside the hu-dad’s study (we might have scared it with a little noise). For some examples of our black bear encounters, you can see our posts here, here, here, and even a story without pictures here.
During our Sunday morning hike, Qannik and Typhoon were our official bear bell wearers, jingling down the trail so that we didn’t surprise any bears. But when we loaded back up in the Jeep, hu-dad forgot to take the bear bells back off, so we were ringing during the entire ride back home.
Many people question bear bell effectiveness, but we want to explain why we know that they are quite effective! That’s right, we wore our bear bells all the way home and not once – not a single time – did we see a black bear in the Jeep with us. Proof positive that bear bells work!
