Anyone been seeing any Bears?

I just was wondering what kind of Bear sightings were going on? I myself haven't seen a bear in years. For awhile there, i was seeing bears quite a bit. I know of people seeing Bears near my area, but I didn't see any. Post your sightings or pictures and what county you seen Bear in. thanks.

Beretta 92FS is my side kick.

Re: Anyone been seeing any Bears?

I had one walk across my driveway back in Mid-May.I would guess 250 to 275 pounds. That's the only Bear I have seen thus far. I'm sure I will see more as I live in Clinton County. The key is seeing one during season!

Saw a young one on the news a few nights ago. Some where in Daulphin CO.

I support the right to arm bears.

Re: Anyone been seeing any Bears?

I had one cross the driveway at work about a month ago.11 am and that suprised me.Two weeks later a neighbor and customer of the shop called to warn me two came down the drive.Several miles away a customer says one keeps getting in her bird feeder.I told her to take it down.No real need to feed birds right now.I work in Sarver.

Seen quite a few. have a couple others on trail cam. I've seen them all over the SC region of PA. then we have a bunch up around our ground in Tioga Co. There's PLENTY of them around. They're starting to show up in areas never seen before!

Re: Anyone been seeing any Bears?

My brother works in the "patch" up on the east side of the ANF and he sees them daily. He seen 7 in one day last week. Just last week he rescued two cubs out of a dumpster with a backhoe and a log while mom "mock" charged the backhoe. He sends me pics every chance he gets. Bear season can't come fast enough !!!

Honesty is my only excuse.

Re: Anyone been seeing any Bears?

Been seeing at least 1 bear a day sometimes 2 and 1 day 3 until the loggers moved in 2 weeks ago. One was at least 500 lbs. I know they're coming in at night now because they're marking my pine trees with chewing, clawing and snapping the tops off some. One also destoyed a whole case of ginger ale that was sitting on the porch. I imagine once the logging crew leaves they'll be walking around in the daytime again.
