Boonie, been seeing bears every trip to camp. One was actually trapped by the game commission near a house that is surrounded by cook forest sp and state forest. Guess you have to take that bear to more of a rural spot??? Anyhow, try the Maple creek area near Vowinkle.

Stoney point or 212 would be good. The acorns are good this year. Plus more guys. Maple creek has died off. And the bears are staying on posted land.

Over the years I have talked to guys that see black
bears around the Lickingville area, but they disappear
like ghosts right around small game season.

Like Gearhart15 said, with there being alot of acorns this year you can bet it will be a good year back there. Plus it will get pounded with guys so they will get em moving.

Great info. I was out scouting in game lands. 24. Didn't see much bear sign. Tons of deer but no black bruins. Where is Stoney point?

Stoney point and 212 are pretty much the same area. Down muzzte road just google earth 212 or Stoney point and that will give you a good idea. I forget the name of the road. It's a big area lots an lots of laurel and down over the mountain a lot of clear cuts.

If you turn on to FR212 and stay straight on it the whole way until it comes to the end at the locked gate and then walk that road a few miles to the new oil tanks that whole area up in there is considered Stoney Point. Very large area with alot of laurel. Theres a horse trail that runs through the laurel right behind those tanks and will take you the whole way back to the creek you cross right after you start down in the road after the locked gate. It gets pounded real hard but they kill bear every year back there.

Im gonna say the #1 reason last year that #24 was so good was because of all the beech nut it produced.
