I can see banging the pan becoming the dinner bell for the bear.. then you becoming THE dinner....|
I watched every episode of 'The Alaska Experience' and the bears up there didn't run from ANYTHING the people tried to scare them away with. The last resort was spreading their own #1 around the campsite which they think may have deterred animals from coming close.
Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!
