Title: Action at the Gut Pile
Post by: Gutpiles on January 20, 2008, 12:01:33 PM
I'll be the first to admit, I know little about bears.  However, I never would have imagined this.  The info sections of this video says it's a week of activity at a deer gut pile.  (Just goes to show you, there's always action at The Gut Pile!  :wink:  )

For our bear chasers - is this type scavenging a common thing?

Bears are scavengers especially for meat .

Thats cool that first bear was real skiddish it was either looking for people or more likely other bigger bears. That cinnamon bear was cool looking too nice rug  ;D  Thats must be a natural game crossing with the deer and elk there too

well you said you was on a plane so i figured you would be gone for awhile.. after two catastrophic crashes on the pc, i think i am back up and running again, lost my write out list, but the ones that come to mind is why were they going for the camera so much, human smell on it? and whats with the cinnamon color, is it a phase or a whole different bear sub species?  i figure you would be the one to ask these kinda ?? to...

Black bears vary in color. Cinnamon is a honey/blonde color of black bear, and not as common as the blacks, of course. I have taken one large bear, a cinnamon.

John's right it is just a colour variance, but still a black bear. Look at the pic I'm posting. It is the best example of black bear colour differences I have seen. It was at my bait, a couple years ago.
great picture, bearman! You and trax have probably already about run out of room for more bearhides at your homes.  O0
