We were so relaxed, having no idea what might be underway at home.
It turned out that a youngish male bear was visiting areas where my trail cameras are located. I got fun video of one of his silly attempts to mark a tree. Milton also marked the same tree, which gives you a chance to compare a mature dominant male bear to a young adult male bear who really doesn't stand a chance of competing (yet).
It turned out that Bandit's mischief was expensive to me. I discovered it today, and I'll get to work on a video to share it with you. I'll give you the hint that I gave him the name "Bandit" after finding his handiwork today.
For now, here's an introduction to Bandit. He's a silly youngster who isn't very good at marking trees yet and isn't anywhere near as strong or skilled as a bear like Milton.
If you have trouble watching the short video here, check it out on Youtube.
Tomorrow, I hope to show you why I decided to name him "Bandit".
On another note, I've had a lot of trouble getting caught up with my work since getting home. I hope to catch up with all of you very soon! My apologies for being so slow.
Bandit sure does need to work on his marking technique.ReplyDelete
Oh Bandit you are a big ginormous baby BOLReplyDelete

Oh Boy, I guess they all have to learn, he is so small compared to Milton, but expensive, that can mean ONLY ONE THING!!!ReplyDelete
Poor Bandit. He needs Milton to show him how it's done.ReplyDelete
Bandit sure has his own style!ReplyDelete
Poor Bandit, he does need a few lessons! BOL!ReplyDelete
Bandit sure is different than Milton.ReplyDelete
Oh I hope he didn't do to much damage.
LOl - Bandit doesn't quite get it. Reminds us of Phantom's first time lifting his leg on a tree - he lifted the outside leg instead:)ReplyDelete
Looks like Bandit could use a few shimmy lessons!ReplyDelete

Bandit is a cool one and Shyla is a beauty!ReplyDelete
I have a feeling his new moniker has to do with damaged or missing equipment. Silly bear.ReplyDelete
Love Bandit! Bears are so fun to watch!ReplyDelete
I don't think Bandit takes the job very seriously...he was just being silly. I thought the big guy was going to know the tree right over!ReplyDelete

Ha ha, how do they learn about marking? Is it by watching another bear?ReplyDelete
Take all the time you need. That's part of the process of blogging anyway. 😇ReplyDelete
