  1. Nature is amazing! Lots of people and animals have tried this strategy. Terry and I have been watching the first season of “Alone” on Netflix. The contestants were dropped off on the northwest wilderness portion of Vancouver Island which is famous for it its wolves, bears, and cougars. One guy sewed fake eyes on the back of his tuque in the hopes of deterring a cougar from attacking him from behind. It was pretty funny! All the best, my friend!
