Every 3rd night. Out he comes. I'm guessing he's getting used to me.
Depending on what it is eating, bear meat can be some of the finest meat available. If it is eating fish or carrion it can be vile.I'm with HidenSeek. The meat is not so good, but several bearskin rugs/blankets sure will keep you warm in the winter. Also if the bear is coming that close to the house, I would consider it a danger to humans.
Quit fooling around with rubber bullets. That just makes them mad. They can swat you 20 ft too.Shooting it won't help. There's plenty more to take it's place. They release bears in the state park right over the hill so they visit regularly. I taught my dog to alert me before chasing them off after I lost my previous dog to one. We used to have horses and a bear come off the hill to the horse shed at feeding time. The dog jumped in between and the bear swatted it, tossed it near 20 feet away. She recovered some but the damage was too much, had to put her down less than a year later she was in so much pain.
I do have rubber plugs to shoot at them but I don't always remember to take them out with me :upsidedown: One of these days I'll get tired enough of them and get me a bear rug.
THIS is where DCNR relocates the bears TO. LOL That's what I'm saying. They release these bears up here because they were taken out of towns or other areas as nuisance bears to begin with. Most are tagged except some of the young ones and a few crafty ones.Contact the DNR in your area and report him/her. A nuisance bear needs to be dealt with. Hopefully, they will just relocate the bear. They may do something more drastic.

To the OP, back bears in the wild are not normally dangerous but can be. The ones like this one that have become habituated to humans can be very dangerous. Do not underestimate the danger from this bear.
The bears up here have not attacked PEOPLE but they do damage to homes and camps where people leave easy access foods around. They've got a head start on it because many were relocated here as nuisance bears from other areas. There really isn't anywhere but a zoo TO relocate them. This is kind of the 'last stop' for them.Quit fooling around with rubber bullets. That just makes them mad. They can swat you 20 ft too.
