this....honestly if one comes into camp i hope im there.one to keep my camp from getting destroyed 15 miles into the wilderness and two for a nice close to camp shot.dont get many of thoseI worry that one will eat all my food and demolish my tent...usually having a tag keeps them scarce.
Ryan, I first felt it about a week or so after I ate it... Flu like symptoms plus swelling around my eyes...Also very sore and tired muscles especially while sleeping, muscles felt like I was lifting weights (like when you lift until failure)... Here's a post I wrote on another hunting site with more details of the ordeal (keep in mind it was wrote earlier so the dates may seem confusing)..BuckSnort,
What are the symptoms of Trichinosis?
That's hilarious!I've had bear tracks in camp in the morning, several times, but have never been bothered by them. I did get a little anxious one night, in the wilderness, when a curious doe stuck her head in the tent, in the middle of the night. I was pretty sure it was a bear until I got the flashlight on her. She doesn't know how close she came to getting shot in the face.
Last year was the first time I heard a bear popping her jaws, that snapping sound as the teeth come together can put you on edge.I have ran across A LOT of black bears in the backcountry. Sometimes more black bears than muleys! With that being said, I haven't had any problems with them. I have came across numerous sows with cubs....face to face....the cubs usually shoot up the nearest tree....and luckily momma hasn't been aggressive and usually put distance between us before turning back to give me another look. By then I was moving away to give them their needed space. It can be a rush!!
