One theme to appear in an upcoming issue of the print magazine, and online, is that of bears in the backcountry.
Part of this will be a presentation of personal bear stories from our community at BPL.
If you have one, we'd love to publish it. If we use your story, you'll get a $25 gift certificate to BPL.com.
Please submit your story - 500 words maximum - with a 50 word max biography - to email@example.com - and include a hi-res JPG self-portrait for your bio.
If you have a particularly outrageous bear story that needs to exceed the 500 word limit for the purpose of poetic license, go for it.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: MAY 15, 2007
