  • No I'll be scared of bears too! Especially with no 911, what do you do in an emergency?

  • Did you grow up that way or is this your first experience with rural living?? If you don't know how to use a gun, buy one and make sure you get properly trained on it!! I lived in Alaska for a few years and we always carried a gun for bears. No your not a wimp, you just haven't learned how to get along without a lot of things yet. You will be amazed at how much you actually can do without. I am assuming you do have a vechicle?? Make sure you get out and to town once in a while or the isolation can make you stir crazy after a while, especially in winter.

  • I live 30 miles to the next town and there is only the sheriff to help us out, but we still have 911.....anyways learn to use a gun because if a bear really wants into your house they will get in! they are nothing to mess around with....you need a pistol, not just a rifle.

  • Bears are notorious for being very smart so just make certain no dog food, cat food or trash cans are left outside that bears can get into.

  • Life is too short. If you hate it move. Your husband can get a new job or you could find a new husband.
