I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

My dad has had a regular visitor to the bird feeder for about 3 weeks now. Eastern PA. He told me the bear has a good size paw about the size of his hand.

Get off the couch and do something constructive.

We have seen signs of them in the middle of winter. My grandpa shot a doe with the muzzleloader after christmas 1 year, as we were trailing the deer, snow up to our knees and it was 10 degrees out, we ran into really big bear tracks trailing the same deer. We eventually lost the deer, the bear already drug it off. I think most males dont truly hibernate. They will venture out in the right conditions or smell food. I could be wrong though.
