    This past fall I was fortunate enough to accompany a friend who drew a mountain goat tag in Montana.  We had been to the area before and it's known for its high density of grizzly bears due to its close proximity to Yellowstone. After punching a tag we set up camp a safe distance away from the meat.  One guy had your PackAlarm set up and around 2:00 AM it went off.  After a middle of the night investigation, we were not sure what caused the alarm to go off.  In the morning we found a fresh grizzly track in a small patch of snow 100 yards from the PackAlarm line.  My gear list in grizzly country will include a PackAlarm from here out.

    I just wanted to let you know that I used a PackAlarm on a Stone sheep hunt in Northern BC this year.  We had a grizzly come up our valley toward camp at dusk and after a lot of yelling and pot-banging we thought we had scared it off.  In the middle of the night, however, it came back and the PackAlarm worked perfectly.  Not only did it alert us and give us time to get our headlamps and rifles, but it spooked the bear and allowed us to avoid a confrontation.

    This is my second purchase from you. Your PackAlarm saved us from what could have been a bad encounter this year. It went off at 1:30 in the morning. All I heard was huffing and crashing through the brush after that. We had a hunter in the area badly mauled this year. He is OK now.

    I carried the PackAlarm on this year's NWT-canoe trip and you were right: it withstands foul weather without worries. Thus I'd like to order another one plus one extra trip-wire-line (just in case). Thanks a lot.
