Yes, but to be fair I don't think his points on black bear were meant to be humorous or entertaining. I think he was expressing his opinion on how they should be viewed by humans.

The problem with statistics is that you can twist and turn them every which way to conform to a narrative.

The attitude one should have towards black bears is dependent on situation and location.

Hiking through rural PA or most parts of NY, I'm really not too worried about black bears. I'm aware that...

Is there a way to view land ownership information online? If, for example, I had an interest in reaching out to a landowner, or leaseholder, for inquiries about leasing opportunities...

Do you have to be a member of the NYS Snowmobile group to use the trails?

I know you have to buy a permit to use many of the trails on private land. I don't see why that same model can be...

I'm not sure I buy that. Many of the snowmobile trails in the ADK's run through private land. What is the liability issue with that and how is it resolved?

Plus, there is always the conservation...

Woodly, do you do any hound training with bears, or was that just an unfortunate encounter?

You can also carry a firearm afield simply because it's allowed by NYS law.

If you have a pistol permit, you're allowed to carry (doesn't even have to be concealed) on state land.
If you legally...

Well, if the clubs were to employ a fee-system, they would still in fact be controlling who comes and goes. I guarantee such a program would bring in more revenue but would only attract a select...

Where are you getting that info from?

I know that Lila is bigger, but looking at both of them on scaled maps, they don't seem all that different. Lake Lila itself is easily a day-paddle trip, as...

Again, nitpicking and exaggerations.

Talking about Lila itself, not adjacent water bodies, you can paddle all of that in about 1 day. The size of Lake Lila is comparable to what you get at...

I think you're nitpicking here.

The water bodies themselves (Lake Lila and Boreas Ponds) are very similar in size.

I can't imagine many people going to Boreas to try and get onto the High...

DSettahr laid out some good fundamentals. I will point out that in most areas of the ADK's, you will not have a good view of anything beyond your immediate target area.

Is the situation at Boreas Ponds really all that different from what exists at Lake Lila?
