Search Google Images for "bear scat" and you will find lots like this...



When the bears are out you will see it frequently when you are hiking.

My friend Milton will often say, "Imagine the size of the a**-hole that came from. Think of how big the animal must be to have an a**-hole that big!"

Black bear crap is usually full of fibre and stained black from berries.

Grizzly bear crap is usually larger, smells of pepper, and contains small bells and scraps of fleece.

Poop talk... My favorite subject these days... [] I saw a lot of poop a few days ago but none of that kind, thank goodness!

Thanks for the topic, I'm glad I finally saw what it looked like. I guess I could have always googled it but never actually had the time to do it!

Yogi bear poop has remnants of pick-a-nick baskets!

The first time my wife ever saw bear scat on a short hike, I started to pick it apart inspecting it.
"That's gross!" she said. "What are you doing?"
"Well, if you're really lucky," I reply "you can find a ring or a watch in this stuff sometimes)"
(She's terrified of bears)

if you want to see lots of bear crap i would suggest hiking the centennial trail from the Skagit through to Lindeman lake in july-aug. i went through there last year and there had to be a big pile o'crap every 100 feet

If you cant outrun the bear, be sure to trip the person in front of you

This reminds me of a prank I pulled on a co-worker that was based in the same camp as me a few years back. He pulled a couple of pranks on a few of us so I just couldn't resist pulling one on him. One day when I was out mapping I came across a very (VERY) large deposit of dried bear poo. I put the poo in a sample bag and took it back to camp with me. That night I separated some of the poo from the rest and rehydrated it in another bag. When it was good & ripe, and late at night, I dumped it on the ground a few feet from his tent. I repeated this two more times during the week (there was lots of it). Others knew what I had done and joined in conversation with me at breakfast. I of course had Stephen Herreros' "Bear Atacks" book with me when I sat down at the table next to him. The topic of the conversation was how to tell the difference between grizzly poo and black bear poo. After careful examination the rest of us all agreed that it was definitely grizzly poo and based on the diameter, most likely a large one. I still can't believe we all kept a straight face. We then talked about how a person's diet might cause them to be more attractive to a bear than other people. Two of us actually moved our tents to sites further away from his tent. At times, he was visibly nervous.
I told him what I had done about two months later. We were pretty good friends at that point. I just made sure it was on the last day in camp.
