Bill Troutwine: Wasn't thinking of having bear steaks

By Bill Troutwine

Penny Lacy fan, Mary Ann Brown wrote, "What happened to your dad when you went to get the horses back and he was left alone with the bear? Did he have to scare the bear off or did the bear retreat related to all the commotion? I have to say these are great stories to read. Thanks so very much for sharing."

Actually I'm not quite as much Mountain Man as my daughter thinks I am. So I can probably answer your question more accurately than she can.

The bear was anxious to leave the area with so much commotion, and I was just as anxious to see him leave.

As soon as the bear disappeared, I started walking up the trail until I met Penny coming back with the horses.

Contrary to what she said, cooking bear steaks never crossed my mind.

I was more concerned that the bear was thinking he would enjoy some Bill Troutwine steaks. --Bill Troutwine
