Mad bear at mid-day
Out 'N The Woods Again
March 11, 2021
Gett'n back to that other bear story ... check'n my records it was not Admiralty this wild scare took place but near Sitka, Chichagof Island.
To set this here thing up right, we'll look at timber cutters' handles up and down the coast. In California they're "choppers." On the Oregon-Washington coast they're "timber fallers." And in Alaska they're "bushlers" cause we worked mostly by the thousand board feet - tak'n the name from farm workers that worked by the bushel.
Anyway, with that out of the way, logg'n camps, like Afognack where I got this story, were segregated - bushlers in one end...
