    Getting on a plane tonight to head to Canada. Going to far northern Manitoba for the second year in a row. I've been dreaming about teeth and claws for 2 weeks straight now. Have the .444 Marlin and the bug headnet all packed up. Good luck to everyone.

    Did you know Africa was home to bears once upon a time?
    The Atlas bear was Africa's only native bear. Once inhabiting the Atlas Mountains and neighboring areas, from Morocco to Libya, the animal is now thought to be extinct. The Atlas bear was brownish black in color. The fur on the underparts was reddish orange. The fur was 4 inches (100-30 mm) long. The muzzle and claws were shorter than those of the Canadian / American black bear, though it was stouter and thicker in body. An adult ranged from about nine to ten feet long and estimated maximum weigh up to 1,000 pounds.

    The Atlas bear (Ursus arctos crowtheri) was a subspecie of the European brown bear. Same as the grizzly or Alaskan brown bear.

    good to see you are on the way, suppose thats the difference with cars and boats no big bits sticking out of the top, maybe use the aerial for the yardarm if you have a big one, but only after you have parked up of course :D have a great time on your hunt and have a toast to all of us when you get your bear :beer:

    $50,000.00, in your money tonight :acclaim:for her. unfortunately bart one of the big sponsors came back to our house and said he could out drink me :shakehead: now after a pint of very nice vintage port(not cheap by the way)down in one...i know not the thing to do, but when goaded you might as well enjoy!!:heh: he got girls to helphim out, inc my wife!! so Bart for all of us on AH i upped it to a quarter bottle shot of grey goose vodka down in one.... me one time of course:cool: but he took about 4 or 5 while looking for help!! so Bart i took your out look and , well i could have repelled boarders..., but i took the philosophical outlook, and thought let them remove him from me so i may retain my you know what licence, and he retained all his passages that run down from his chin ! i hate being politically correct.. so have a great hunt. and the sun has been over the yar arm at least 2 times today!!!:draught::bighello::rockon: i am sure this doesnt make sense.
