|Jag||Makes me glad that we don't live where there's bound to be that type of wildlife! Maybe Bear didn't see the buck being as much of a threat as the coyotes? I'd have found his backward glances very unnerving! I've learned to trust my shepherds, and I'd have also thought we were being followed!|

That's a bit unnerving! Isn't it rutting season for the bucks? If so then I'd be REAL careful with them!
I'd be really worried about bears but I envy a quiet walk with just me and my dogs, can't go anywhere here without there being a lot of people and cars. :/

|arby665||YIKES! We have a lot of coyotes in our area and we never had any problems with them at all. We used to only have an electric fence for our dogs. One night our dog came tearing back to the house with 2 coyotes on her tail. They were so close to getting her that she actually had coyote slobber on her hind end. This is the one and only time this happened and the only time we ever saw more than one at a time. It was scary that's for sure.|

I live in the country and now that the sun is only out for 2 hours a day my nightly runs are in the dark. We do have coyotes around here but I think my imagination is the worst thing I have to deal with. Oh and the cars that go 90 mph down the back country roads.
I think the buck would have scared me more. They are known to attack. Can you carry bear spray or something with you?

|Kayos and Havoc||We walk in the dark too as I leave for work at 6:30 AM. The worst we deal with is cats and lose dogs.|

|Cheerful1||I've also wondered why Joey barks at some things/people, but not others.|

What I really find interesting is that he barked at the coyotes (or the sound and smell of them) but when we encountered the buck and previously the bear, he did not bark but his hackles did go up.
I'm wondering what his reasonings are for being discriminite in whether he will bark or not. I just find it very curious.

I totally hear you, I am also up and out at the crack of dawn. I've been waiting longer to go out but then I start running late for work. I don't have bears or coyote's but since it is hunting season I have to be aware of that. Over the years I've heard of the lone jogger or something getting attached by a pyscho or such, glad I always have a dog or 3 with me. I've just started heading back into the trails so I don't have to worry about a car or truck hitting us.
What about a loud sound to scare off anything out there?
