Steve Gendron is another avid Sawbill visitor who sent along this note and picture:
Hello Sawbillians. Enclosed is a photo of a black bear that I made of chicken wire, papier-mache, and white pine needles. Insofar as I’ve got 14 white pines in my small, south Mpls yard, and I read at least one newspaper cover- to- cover every day, I’ve got plenty of supplies. I’ve also made a bull moose and an African, two-horned black rhino. Each is life-sized. Making these animals-except, obviously, the rhino, is one way for me to be “in” the BWCA in the deep winter. There aren’t rhinos in the BWCA, are there?
