Puzzling looking at the size of that forearm and the lighter brown color compared to the bears in the pic... Hmmm.... Maybe a Sasquatch??? LOL..... On a lighter note.... My friend sent me a pic yesterday of a bear in a local mall... This is about 1 1/2 hrs. South of me... Guess is...View attachment 177097Marshalls was having a sale....
That person carrying a purse hasn’t a clue yet. That pin oak might need a ladder stand in it this fall. Lol

I hunted Bear in PA for 18-19 years straight, only saw 3 while hunting, shot 2 of them. Looks like a good spot.
Being from Pa. I've also hunted them there... Seen 2, shot 1... Pike County... In Jersey I have plenty of pics of them, including many giants....

Potter and Tioga counties in Pennsylvania are overrun with black bear now. In the 70’s and 80’s, you‘d be lucky to see one bear every 20 trips, now you see at least one on every trip…a lot stroll right through camp in broad daylight.

This is really starting to piss me off... Just got another pic of that SOB up close... Just went there yesterday to fix camera... Guess we'll see later if I get any pics, or he moved it or broke it... And I used rubber gloves yesterday to touch it so not to leave any scent on it.... You guys are so lucky not to have them....

Don't laugh.... Earlier in the day I stopped at Popeyes and got chicken for dinner .. I was tempted to have some prior to going to fix camera but declined cause I didn't want smell on my fingers... @mike hunt here's an example of bears I get on camera....

Might bring a ' 12 gauge ladder '... I carry enough shit in... This camera is not even set up where I plan on taking Dan or Jon... Although if I keep getting bear pics here I might have to set one of them up here... When I start baiting the bears I'll take a single ladder stick with me to get camera up higher as that area has a higher bear density ( or so I thought )
