Here's a survival tip for you urban types, in case you find yourself forced to sleep in bear country without a dog to alert you and a rifle to protect yourself: you can define a reasonably protected perimeter—mark your territory if you will—and keep Teddy at bay by peeing around your campsite.

Here's a caveat: it only works with male pee. While it saves our fair ladies the embarrassment of performing the duck-and-crawl routine around the tent, it means you'll either have to be a male or carry one with you.

Here's an extra tip: do not, under any circumstance, combine that strategy with this piece of gear. Consequences could be dire if nature calls for an extra layer of protection in the middle of the night.

Here's another caveat: it only seems to work on bears and has no noticeable effect on other calamities, such as Socialists, bureaucrats and other tax collection agents.

Having said that, I'll risk the bet that your Liberal neighbor might feel less inclined to come at your fence and gloat over President-elect B Hussein Obama once he's witnessed you (or your hubby) taking a leak around the yard in broad daylight.

Might be worth a try.

Ja its nice and all but if Herr Frogmann does not come back what will we do?

It's one month and a half since he was last seen claiming his pee scares the bears away and I am starting to worry he got his peeing device stuck-frozen somewhere out in the globally warmed wilderness at -20 ...

which is bad.

Please, DF, let us know you're Ok, Ok?

Hi All

Just thought I'd drop in and see if DF had come home. Appears, not yet.

He'd better have some great stories of drinking and womanizing when he does show up.

Oh, well . . . I'm practicing my bear repellent on many shoes and their throwers. lol, offence to our Muslim friends. ta!

Currahee,

Ron

Do you think we need to storm the Bastille and free Froggy?

Face it. He's gone.....and this blog is as dead as the republican party. It was fun while it lasted, but I think we should begin considering this a sacred burial ground. Rest In Peace Froggie

I have recently procured a combination bear-Liberal-Criminal repellent system consisting of an M1 Garand rifle, a Colt Model 1911 (circa 1918) and a new Springfield Armory M1911-A1 Mil Spec.

The M1 is great. It shoots M2 30 Cal (Springfield 30-06) with 150 grain spitzers at muzzle velocity of about 2850 fps. The weapon doesn't have much recoil because it weighs 11 pounds with a full en bloc clip, strap and cleaning kit, but at 440 yards using a peep sight, I can put rounds in an 8" diameter still traveling at 1900 fps.

The Colt Model 1911 was my wife's grandfather's WWI sidearm. People have done some "upgrades" but fortunately, I still have the original parts they replaced (trigger, backspring housing and slide). It shoots wonderfully as one would expect from a fine machine.

I'm still breaking in the SA Mil Spec and I intend to upgrade to an Ed Brown bushing & Barrel, a Videki trigger and new sights. Can't decide if I want adjustable iron sights or a laser.

To support the ammunition use, I bought a Lyman single stage press with dies for both 30-06 and 45 ACP. It's really not economical to reload for the 30-06 when I can buy surplus 30 cal at 28¢ per round from the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Still, I'm saving all my brass and stocking primers, powder and a few 150 grain spitzers.

One suggestion. Maybe if we just peed directly on the Liberal it might be an effective repellent.

So, peeing a perimiter doesn't keep LIberals and/or Socialists away hmmm. Perhaps, as others have stated, direct application is required. A well aimed shot to the eye might just be painful enough if lots of acidic fruits are eaten prior to said "eye-pee" event.

One thing is for certain, it's the only type of ammo they aren't/can't take away from us.
