Be Aware of Bears on Your Property

When you are homesteading, and living out in a rural area, you need to contend with all the wild animals that also happen to live in that location. You could have coyotes, foxes, and plenty of other critters that might want to get up to no good on your property. However, some that can be particularly dangerous and ornery given the right circumstances, are bears. All bears have the potential to be dangerous, and you need to do some things that will help dissuade them from coming onto your property. Here are some tips.

First, you need to make sure you have a secure place to keep your garbage until you are ready to take it to the landfill. It should be kept in a locked shed located away from the house. Do not trust the bear-proof garbage cans, as they are not always as “bear-proof” as they claim. Garbage attracts bears, and it is one of the most common causes of conflict between bears and humans.

If you have livestock on your property, you will also want to do a good job of managing the animal feed that you have. The feed needs to be stored away from the animals and in a secure, locked shed. Do not overfeed the livestock either, as this extra food could end up attracting the bears. If you have pets, feed them indoors.

Never store food outside. It can be tempting to get an outside freezer or chest to store extra meat from your hunts. However, as soon as the bears get a whiff of this, they will be heading to your property.

Finally, consider electric fences to stop the bears from getting onto your property in the first place. Bears are no laughing matter, and they always have the potential to be dangerous. Use caution.
