I actually saw him during hunting season, so he was alive then. Not much left now. A little further on there was a very large pile of bear poo, full of fur. Are they already out of hibernation, or do they truly hibernate in this mild weather? A little further on....
the classic ripped apart log. (fresh) Left the cam on down the creek a ways, where a couple trails cross. Can't wait to check it out. Well, it might be a week or so, before I can get these old bones moving again.

Trying to balance hunting and work, and the scales leaning to much to one side.

Sometimes I'll see bear sign thoughout winter. This winter I haven't seen any tracks since christmas tree hunting season. We saw several sets while up driving around in what little snow there was before christmas. We were out all day today on foot and didn't see any sign. There were a couple piles of deer hair that had passed through a lion . Last winter while predator hunting I came across a dead bear that had died fairly recently,it was jsut a stinky pile of hair,bones and gooey stuff that had been meat. The nose part of its skull had been chewed off.
It would be interesting to know if they migrate off the higher elevations, or den up and go to sleep for winter. In the mid and low elevations, I think they go take a nap for 2-3 weeks and wake up hungry and go looking for something to eat, then go back to bed for while.

I am almost positive that you can't bait bear, even for a cam. Good thing you are bating deer.

I belive i was told you could bait bears up to the start of season. As long as the bait is gone by season you can bait them for photos. You can also use sent baits.

Depending on the weather/elevation, black/brown bears will come out of hibernation off and on during the winter. Especially since we're having the warmest February ever here.
So stoked for black/brownies this spring.
