    If your in bear country and want to have chickens you gotta have an electric fence If I were going to keep bees or chickens or a garden Id probably just suck it up and install a high tensile fence a 4 wire version and a nice heavy duty fencer...

    Quote:Pretty much the same here and dont forget smoked bear roast [​IMG] You will need to put a stop to this bear as it has now found an easy food source and will not stop untill you stop it.

    Yeah, Colorado has no spring bear season so I will have to wait till fall before I get him. Putting up the electric fence tomorrow.
