So Many Bear Tracks

November 27, 2018

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
This season I got a chance to hunt the Shawangunk Ridge. I have never seen so much bear sign in my life. I must have crossed (no exaggeration) about a dozen bear tracks. Seemed like more bear than deer! Some were small, some medium, and some ridiculously large. Most seemed to be making their way up the mountain in the morning and coming down in the evening, maybe to feed near peoples’ houses. The ridge seems to be experiencing a population boom.

 

May the forest be with you,
