It seems black bear sightings are on the rise in Texas, especially in the Hill Country and the south...

Guess this means I need to learn to hang my food and carry bear spray. I'd certainly hate to be harassed by a hungry bear!

It's not the bears you need to fear in Texas - it's the racoons.

Ever had them try to get into your tent?
As a young teen I messed around with trapping them with a friend. Found out just how vicious they can be if angered (trapping them seems to really get them mad for some reason).
