Re: Big Boy From Lycoming County
I was guessing 400-450. It always amazes me how quiet bears can be.
It was late afternoon and I was standing on the ground by the porch filling Coleman lanterns and never heard this guy approaching from behind. I only heard one faint snap of a twig, turned around, and he was standing 25 feet away. He hung around for a couple of minutes and then just walked away.
He was back again at 8:00 AM the next morning. This time he stayed around for 15-20 minutes as we watched him from the porch. He sat there swatting at some flies buzzing his face and at one point he even laid down. Perhaps another camp was feeding him because it almost seemed like he was waiting for a handout. I suppose he finally realized he wasnít getting anything and ambled on down the driveway, stood up and rubbed his back on a tree (but didnít claw it), and then continued down the lane.
