Seems there's a resident now.
Apparently there is a "resident" blackie making it's home in Eastern Washington County. He (I believe it's a he) is living in a fairly populated area, as most of Eastern Washington Co. is. He is a regular eating over a baited trailcam. Up until now, just about all Bear were pass throughs, and I knew it would be a matter of time before some decided to hang around. If I were a guessing guy, I'd say within 10 years or so, there will be a very small huntable population in extreme SW PA.
