Bears Tear Up Everything

Here is a big Bear on my place in Catahoula parish reaching up and pulling down the feeder motor. Last pic his eyes are closed as I guess he got an eye full of corn! Funny stuff but they are very destructive animals.

Try feeding Soy Beans in lieu of corn and the bears will leave your feeders alone.

Had one tear up my buddy's seat on his 4 wheeler while hunting Bayou Cocodrie NWR. We always joked that bear was after his sweet a**!!!!!

We switched to soy beans too. The bear visited every feeder and on the last one he stopped at it was a gravity feeder on a T-post and he bent it over to the ground and dumped all the beans out and didn't eat a single one. Haven't seen him since.

Sure am glad the state spent millions and millions of dollars to reintroduce these animals.....so beneficial

those dang things still giving you fits I see. I keep hearing rumblings about a bear season in LA but I don't guess there is one yet. That might end some of your misery if it starts. Those things are something!

Rigged up a varmint shocker w some electric fence wire. Hooked it up to the 12 v battery in my feeder. They left it alone.
