MarkDidier wrote:My guess is you have a better chance of seeing a black bear in your neck of the woods than in Colorado. I know I've never even seen a black bear in NC or Tennessee either. Actually that isn't completely true. One time when we were leaving GSMNP, we were about 1/4 mile from Gatlinburg and I saw the ass end of a black bear as he was digging into a garbage can. My only southern Appalachian bear sighting.
In all seriousness, in the whopping 5 nights I've spent in the Colorado backcountry, we've just kept a clean camp, no food in our tents and we hung our food bags. I've never carried pepper spray. Would be curious to hear what other's have to say on the matter. (September will be here for you before you know it Bob!)

Reestablishing the griz in Colorado would probably require actual reintroduction, which probably would be politically impossible.
