Based off a sign that once graced Yellowstone National Park, the "Don't Feed the Bears" sign is a familiar warning within the park gates. Home to both black bears and grizzlies, Yellowstone Park is alive with wildlife and signs heeding the warning to "do not approach wildlife" and "don't feed the bears" are posted throughout the park to remind park visitors that while in close proximity to the park campgrounds and features, these animals are still wild and potentially dangerous. This sign pays an excellent homage to western Montana lovers and those who love the rustic, cabin look. My inspiration for this piece came from a love for the west and the simplicity of the past.
All signs are hand-made, hand-build, hand-painted and originally created designs made from Montana barnwood. Made by myself and my husband in our shop in Hamilton, Montana.
***Since we acquire our barnwood locally in small batches, each sign is unique and will be HANDMADE UPON ORDER. THE ITEM PICTURED IS A SAMPLE OF THE FINISHED PRODUCT. The final product will have the same design and colors as pictured, but the wood will vary slightly in color and patina. This ends up in each sign being a unique original. If you have any special requests regarding wood, please inquire upon ordering and we will do our best to accommodate.
We choose wood for its patina, not its perfection! Because the wood we use for our signs is reclaimed, imperfections in the wood can be expected. Also, be cautious when handling the signs as an occasional sliver may occur. While we try, please understand that not all the materials used to build the sign may be reclaimed (ex. braces, screws, hangers).
This is a substantial piece of art with an approximate size of 19" x 23". There is a wire hanger on the back. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
