All you wanted to know about Michigan bears and more. The bulk of the book is devoted to what has been learned about black bears through research in the state, including one researcher who learned about bears by walking with them. There's also valuable historical information about how hunting for this species of big game has evolved, an unsuccessful attempt to ban certain bear hunting methods and a history of bear attacks. There's also valuable information about how to avoid problems from black bears whether you are a rural resident, camper, hiker, biker, angler or hunter.
One section of the book covers current bear management. This is the 2nd edition of the book, which contains about 100 more pages and far more information than the 1st edition. Although the book has Michigan in the title, much of the information about black bears on its pages applies to the animals almost anywhere they are found. One of the chapters is about a Michigan cub that was orphaned and became part of an important bear research project in Minnesota.

From the Author:

I've been fascinated by black bears for a long time, and the more I learn about them, the more I respect them. They are truly intelligent and adaptable animals. I had been thinking about writing a book to educate the public about bears and bear hunting for years when a Michigan ballot referendum that would have banned a pair of popular bear hunting methods prompted me to do so.The 1st edition of this book was published in 1995. The referendum was on the state ballot in 1996 and it failed. I like to think that book had something to do with the outcome of that vote. When that edition sold out, I wrote an expanded 2nd edition with much more information, which remains popular today.One of the chapters in this book is about a pair of orphaned cubs my wife and I helped raise and return to the wild.

From the Back Cover:

If you are interested in black bears, this is the book for you!It includes all you wanted to know, and more, about bears in Michigan.BEAR ATTACKS  - What's behind them and how to avoid them.Learn what to do if you encounter a bear.Find out why Michigan's bears are increasing and extending their range.Excellent bear management and how it was achieved.Read about a researcher who walked with wild bears!
