The BowTie Black Bear

Sitting here watching something on the computer when I hear something outside on the porch. I look out and its the white faced black bear that has been getting into our garbage and he’s making his way over to our water jugs. First thing I was thinking is should I grab a gun or a camera. I opted for the gun, no intensions of hurting or killing him, just as a security measure and to scare him away if he didn’t listen to me. Well, told him to leave and he is obedient, like most are but he only jogged about 20-30 feet and stopped at the driveway. So I fired a shot in the air, just a small .22 round, something to scare him and he was gone…..Life in the woods I guess 😉

Here is a clip of the bear caught on my trail cam early this month….(There is a smaller bear in this clip too, it is the bigger bear that showed up tonight.

In 2015, our family faced a real health crisis that brought us to 2017 facing a release from the military. Since our lives were being turned upside down we had to find a new way to provide for our family so we decided to build a modern off grid homestead. Our journey is just getting started in the backwoods of Canada. Have you faced similar challenges or just want to take control and live life on your terms? Come along with us as we show that you just have to go for it no matter what!
