“Read the bears”???? Yeah thats what the grizzly bear guy said too.Visited brother in AK several years ago.Was hoping to see a brown bear.But while fishing different streams for salmon/trout and walking through tall brush I hoped to God that I didn't see one.I was always singing or talking loudly because I didn't have a cow bell.We had side arms also.Brother has access to some special places and takes people to view and take pics of bears.One of the guys took a pic of him taking a pic.You really have to know how to read the bears and other wildlife.

Bear bells are awesome right up until they become dinner bells, then not so much.
He has some pretty crazy stories (and pics).Some invalve a particular wolf.Timothy Treadwell in my opinion didn't know what he was doing.He put himself into places where others who know there way around brown bears would never go and knew it was only a matter of time with him.Of course they are wild and there is always some risk invalved for sure!“Read the bears”????
