I've confessed my fear of bears recently and now I have an intriguing question for you all...
We found something interesting when wandering through the woods during our recent elk hunt. Hanging from an aspen tree was a bear head as if put on display. Honestly, it kinda freaked me out and still does a bit. I'm not sure what to make of it. Why would someone take the time to carefully skin out the hide and then hang it on a tree? Is it out of respect for the animal? Some bizarre custom? A warning sign of sorts? I still don't know... I've tried some google searches in an attempt to figure this out. You can get some pretty strange results with searches like "skinned out bear head hung from tree."
