I used to be over several very large properties. The bee guys would pay a very low rent, like $0.10 per acre for 10,000 or more acres, to put the bees out there for gallberry and tupelo honey. Bears are a nuisance and they would put up fencing or solar hot wire. One guy that was half crazy would sit in the bee yard all night with a shotgun and shoot the bears when they came in.
