Hype just dropped this morning of a new bear tallow soap from a collaboration between Murphy and McNeil and Black Mountain named Nantahala.  It'll drop Oct 12, 9am central.  I've known about this one because my kid made some brushes for the release.  I dig M&M soaps and wonder exactly what a bear tallow soap will do and just exactly how rare will it be given the nonexistent commercial bear market.  [Image: MpWzCGC.jpg]

Dangerous stuff to obtain that bear oil.

Looking forward to picking some up, as I have spent a lot of time in and love that area of the country....the Western Carolina mountains and the Nantahala Forest.

Cool video - the older silverback seemed to be giving the young upstart a little latitude...for a while then put him in his place with authority.  Interesting to watch how the battle is mostly for display purposes for dominance reasons without too much actual infliction of damage.  Its hard to tell if the animal in the background described as a wolf is a wolf or a coyote without a closer look - it seems a bit small for a wolf although it could be a juvenile.  The photographer had nerves of steel to photograph that altercation as bears are unpredictable and they could easily have turned on him or his vehicle.  In the over 50 years I've driven along highways in western Canada I've seen lots of black bears on roadsides but did not see a grizzly until this past summer.  I've seen plenty of grizzlies at remote drilling locations but they tend to keep to the high country away from roads.  I guess this year weather led to a scarcity of food up high so they came down.  

Bear tallow soap?  This has to be a very limited production run.

Yikes!
they do that kind of stuff, watching to see if something tasty turns up. Back in the late 1970s I was working on a drilling rig in NE British Columbia in a place appropriately called Grizzly Valley. There were plenty of grizzly bears around. My most memorable experience, apart from crossing paths with a grizzly on the road in the middle of the night while I was walking with a big galvanized steel tub full of hot food for the crew on night shift. It just stopped, looked st me for s moment and moved on. Phew. When I left that site we were standing on the road outside the camp getting duffel bags loaded   There was some brush on the other side of the road about six feet away. We got loaded and left and as we were pulling out I turned and looked back and from that perspective I could see in behind the bush we’d just been standing next to and there was a great big grizzly bear sitting there. He’d been less than ten feet from us the whole time we’d been loading. Grizzly Valley goodbye.
