Question Bear sightings in Forest County

With the large harvest of bears in Forest county last year due to having snow are bear sightings down this year in that Forest county?

Just wondering how many bears will be available for this fall.

Bears are highly mobile... If the population takes a hit in a certain area the bears will move into that area by the next hunting season...If the food is there...

Have seen a lot so far this summer. Twin and triple cubs. They are great at disappearing in October.

I also have seen some sows with 4 cubs. And I have seen quite a few singles as well. Some in warren county, some in Venango and some in Jefferson County. I was just telling a buddy that there is a lot of bears around this year and I looked over to the side of the road and there was a bear. Certainly helped to make my point.
Buff and John Schweigart like this.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

"When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it, the deer hears it, and the bear smells it."

I live in Forest County. Trust me when I say this. "PLENTY OF BEAR AROUND!" Right out my back door is a very heavily hunted bear area that year in and year out multiple bear are harvested and huge drives take place. You would think there is no way anything could make it through. Next day another drive another bear or two down. On to the next day and it continues until the season comes to a close. Then the following week in deer season we see a sow a 2 cubs one day and another day 2 different bear. This was last year. Same thing every year. You find the laurel and you'll find the bear!

We have a sow with quads around our camp. The last litter she had was 4 as well.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.
