Them skunk apes are sneakier than a bear. You have to walk with the wind to your back to smell them coming. If you must walk into the wind, first zig then zag.

I looked behind myself once and this is what I saw
 

Maybe they dont do it in the woods.

Don, this is Ray Hammond on Bob Walkers computer-

Intellectually I know you're right...but every time I'm out there I think about Bart.

That means I turn around, regardless of what my head says.

I'm one of those guys in the Gary Larsen cartoon who are both in wheelchairs, sitting in a depression, and there are three people in the background,  one on a ladder with a rake up getting leaves off the roof, another standing on a hill swinging a golf club, and the last one is in a cherry picker over a truck working on overhead power lines- over the whole scene is a black cloud overhead- both the guys are looking as they wheel up to each other and one says " Hey, YOU were struck by lightning once too?" Over their heads, coming right at them down in that depression, is a monster lightning bolt.

I'm that guy.

Heck, I look over my shoulder every time I go in the yard.  Black bears pass through frequently.  They took down my bird feeders three weeks ago and my son's [he lives a couple of mile away] a month ago.  When I'm in the woods, I am continuously looking -- you never know!  I always carry bear spray with me and have it readily available in house in case I need it in the yard.
