    Originally, I planned to use the dogfood/lower on the food chain than deer theme. The current captions try to make the statement more concise. (Caption just edited)

    You may be in love with the bear part but, how about dropping the "bear" completely.

    Armed, we are safe from predators.

    Unarmed, we are food.


    Seems snappier to me.

    Then it's true ! Bears do eat the whistle and can of bear spray!

    None in the photo, so it must be true!

    Great poster, Oleg! (Yes, I realize those are really deer bones.)

    In case you haven't heard that story --the way you know if there's a man-eating bear in the area is to check the bear scat and see if there's a whistle and can of bear spray in it.

    Edit to add:

    Here's one complete version of the story from

    If you really think the carry-in-National-Parks issue is something worth worrying about (I personally don't, but whatever floats your boat), you would be a lot more effective talking to people about the risk from other humans, not bears. How many people have been killed by bears in National Parks compared with the number killed by humans?

    A little too Steven Colbertish, if you ask me.

    Oops. I see you made the edit. I'm on slow dial-up here and shot before being sure of my target.

    The joke I heard in Alaska is that you can always tell it's hiker remains when the bear poop smells like cayenne pepper, and there's bear bells sticking out.

    National Parks are famous hangouts for all kinds of rif-raff. It is a shame we can not enjoy the parks as we should.

    I have a cousin that had close encounter with a mama grizzly and her cub (The cub wandered into his camp at night and Mama followed) in Yellowstone.
    Thankfully it all turned out alright, but he desparately wished he had had his 12 gauge bear gun that he was able to carry while fishing in Alaska two years before.

    If you ever do a reshoot, just put a can of bear spray in with the bones.

    Considering that there are perhaps 2 or 3 people per year killed by bears, and 200-300 killed by bees, and 20,000 killed by other people, perhaps we're worrying about the wrong thing??

    [Just ask a lady, they will remember :p ]

    To make it a bit more concise...

    I like the general idea, but the top caption sounds awkward to me. Besides, being armed does not necessarily make one safe, only safer.

    To simplify the message, and make the image a bit more concise, the captions could be something like:

    (Upper) "Unarmed, we're easy food"

    (Lower)"Legalize self-defense in National Parks" (same size font as the upper)

    Or:

    (Upper)"Predators abound."

    (Lower, Line 1)"Unarmed, we're easy food."
    (Lower, Line 2)"Legalize self-defense in National Parks"
    (same size font as the other lines)


    Anyway, just food for thought. :)

    Guys, think billboard.

    Minimal text.

    Even less punctuation.

    I still really doubt that deer have the fine motor skills necessary to utilize firearms ;)
