At the time of Wisconsin Statehood, bears could be found in every county in the state. Early Native Americans living in this very area, honored the bear as a supernatural being. They treated the bear hunt with great ceremony and respect. The Native Americans along with the earliest white settlers prized the bear hide for robes along with the meat and oil for cooking, fuel, and medicines.
They say there haven’t been any Bears around this part of Wisconsin since the 1890’s, but come along and hunt this multi cache as you search for the mystical Bear.
The micro caches are truly micro, smaller than a film container and painted black. I didn’t want this to be a “Drive by find”. Plus the tree cover also makes this a little more challenging getting a good GPS fix. The clues should help you find your way.
This is a nice walk through the park from one end to the other. Bring the dog and maybe some lunch, plenty of area’s to start a fire and cook some burgers.
#1 The hunt begins. I had to move this clue to a better spot and I will give it to you to get you started. the clue is about six feet high and is hanging in something. OK that should do it.
#2 Bears like pine trees, they have been known to eat and gnaw on them. They also like to push the trees over, this is not quite down, looks like maybe they were here.
#3 Bears loooove honey. Looks like a bear could reach right in and scoop a paw full of honey out.
#4 Bears are always up for a picnic, but it looks like an obstacle is blocking my path.
#5 Be careful, no need to injure yourself. You can see for miles, any bears?
#6 The final for the “Clan of the Cave Bears”. This is a regular sized ammo container. Make sure to greet the attached inhabitants, but they're intended to stay in their den.
