I was tending my schwenker BBQ a couple of weeks ago when I heard a commotion along the roadside. I thought it was Max, a neighbor's big chocolate lab dog being walked, as he often romps up my driveway and into the woods along side of the road. Max, you sure are making an unusially lot of noisy ruckus today. Upon closer inspection that was not max, but a medium size black bear rushing across the road and right up my property line 100 feet from me toward the back of my land where there is a spruce swamp. Since then I always take the cooking grate down from the tripod chaIn over the fire pit when I am finished cooking and put it safely away.
