8/23/17 – Last week Sawbill was featured in not one, but two articles in the Duluth News Tribune. Since not all of our newsletter readers are from the Duluth area, we are re-posting an excerpt from one of the articles titled “Stories from Sawbill: Bears and other visitors make an outfitter’s life interesting” by Sam Cook. The full article can be read here.
Bear comes shopping
One day, Bill Hansen was working in the outfitting office when an employee, John Schrag, popped in.
He said, ‘I have a question,’ ” Hansen recalled. ” ‘Should there be a bear in the store?’ ”
“No. Is there one?” Hansen asked Schrag.
“Yes,” Schrag replied.
So, the two of them walked down to the outfitting store. Sure enough, there was the bear.
“He was fully in the store, but he was kind of holding the door open with his back end,” Hansen said. “I said, ‘Nope. Out you go.’ And he ran off.”
