    Back in the day around here people would just push cars off cliffs to get rid of them and stoves, old ice boxes and beer racks.

    No, that rarely works, and only if the bear is just trying to drive you away. If the bear is hungry, you are just another form of prey - a slow, easy-to-catch one at that.

    The grizzly is the top North American predator, the cougar/puma/mountain lion second. Both are known to kill and eat humans. It's rare, but it does happen.

    Most bears you find outside Alaska and the high Rockies are the smaller Black/Brown bear (not the Grizzly) . They WILL attack and kill humans for food, especially in Fall (fattening up for hibernation) Spring (just woke from hibernation). In summer, Mama Bear will have cubs, and protect them. If you see cubs, Mama is nearby, and she has a bad attitude.

    If you see a bear coming toward you, make noise, fight back, throw rocks and sticks, yell. Put a tree between you and them - they are faster runners than you are, and more agile too, you can't turn with them. You can climb a tree perhaps, but they will try to either climb the tree or push it down, or just wiggle it to knock you out. So go armed with guns and pepper spray, protect yourself. They are not fuzzy cartoon creatures.

    Thing is my buddy and I know where 2 more 33 plymouths are sitting in the woods as well, but they are pretty crusty.

    Here's my version...My legs are like rubber..There was one spot there where I was seriously puckered up..6 inches of mud and snow seperating me from certain death!

    Most of that stuff is on access roads, pushed off the sides and left for dead. The easy to reach stuff has been cleaned up years ago, these two went after some harder to reach stuff.

    I've seen stuff like this on Boise Cascade property, Weyerhauser, and even back up in the canyons of Eastern Washington. No one owns that stuff, besides, corporations don't give a rat's ass about some old tin.

    This thread reminds me of a story told to me about a bluff near a town about 30 miles South of me. supposed to have been where cars were pushed off after being stolen and stripped. I think I remember who told me the story about 40 years ago, think I'll call him and ask him about it!

    Fuck throwing rocks, shoot it till you're sure it's dead. Then shoot it some more.
    Oh yeah, then treat yourself to a Molsens and an english wheel!

    Heh, I'm with you. Just sometimes you aren't armed when you want to be - I've heard stories from a friend about finding a bear while (literally) shittin' in the woods, with the rifle 50 yards away back in camp. Luckily the bear didn't seem interested. So, defend yourself, don't play dead, that's all.
