    Default Alaska Bee Keeping

    This is just a short video of a walk up the hill to my bee yard in Western Alaska.

    I'm a couple of years too young to be a hippy but that is my music. Had two uncles that served in Vietnam and two that weren't drafted because of college.

    Do you have problems with bears?

    I have not had bear problems yet. We have mostly Browns and the ones that come near town get shot. The dogs in the video are my bear alarms, they keep most away.
    I did have one brown last summer get off a ice flow right in front of my house and swim to shore right in my front yard, but a little hot lead under his feet got him moving in the right direction and never came back.

    I have a electric fence now as insurance too.
