Story Summary

In Pennsylvania in the 1920s, Robin's grandpa shot a bear in self defense, had him stuffed and put in his shop. Years later Robin finds a female bear grunt call in a drawer in the shop, and takes it into the woods to see if he can attract a male bear, which he does, but when he returns to the shop, all that is left of the old sawdust bear are fresh bear tracks heading into the woods.
