This morning I was getting my Bow and Scope out to shoot and as I looked out the glass door down the range I noticed my target was missing. What the...

So I walked out and noticed that the bracket that I hang the field tip yellow jacket target was bent and the target gone. I live in a very remote place and had not heard any cars in the driveway so I wondered what could have happened. I looked around in the woods and low and behold there was the target butt ripped all to pieces with the stuffing pulled out. Obviously a bear was curious...

Once I examined the remains closely I noticed that the target butt is packed with cotton stuffing AND old burlap bags marked "OUTSPAN Product of Cote D'Ivoire Cocoa". When I pulled one of the bags out of the target a few cocoa beans spilled out. The hungry bear had smelled the coca beans and had ripped into the target for a snack!

Yellow Jacket targets are assembled in Guatemala and I guess OUTSPAN has a cocoa growing business there too.

Too funny! When I recovered mine and pulled the stuffing out to repack it I also has some beans spill out of the canvas sack.

Ha that is pretty funny. So they are built in Guatemala and use OUTSPAN beads from the Ivory Coast (Thats what Americans call Cote D'Ivoire)

Seems a little weird but I guess it makes sense!

If you go hiking around your place, you had better make sure that you don't have a Hershey bar in you pocket!!!:D A bear with a sweet tooth is not a good thing.
