They discovered it was the remains of the old bear trapper. They found his skull nearby. Ironic, and fitting perhaps, that he ended up passing through a bear.. There is a good account of the story in a book of the history of the Swan Valley.



... great story there

... best I can hope for is getting hamstrung by a mangy coyote around here lol

There's a few peaceful ways I'd prefer to check out, mangled, mauled to death and eaten by a grizzly not being top of the list.

When I went to Alaska to hunt Browns, I told my Wife and kids ..If I went out by being Mauled I wouldn't mind.
They were not too happy with me.

When I die I will be Torched to ash mixed With FFG and my kids are to load the Muzzleloaders and shoot ...Deer, Bear....whatever they like.

If it was legal I'd rather be put up on a Tamarac platform in Native leathers to be left to waste away in the wind, bur FFG it will have to be.

Come to think of it why isn't that a thing? Human taxidermy mounts. Keep loved ones around indefinitely.

I always told my wife and kids I want to be ground up and used as bear bait! Returned to nature naturally. Also I want them to use some of the bait for a hunt, it would be our last hunt together! They have never been thrilled with that plan. LOL
