Damn dude! That's unsettling!

We are getting our first black bear season here in Missouri this year. They were not reintroduced by the conservation agents, they just moved up from Arkansas. The ones around here in central Missouri are usually lone males that have roamed a good distance...so sightings are still occasional but more than with mountain lions.

I had not seen that yet . Interesting . They have been seeing bears in St. James for a couple years . That's where I was deer hunting .
Chesterfield valley sees some bears , a guy just had one on a trail cam over the weekend . A fair amount of mountain lions also .
 
Oh my and the fact of how close you are to take those pictures. Where is this at?
In western pa in elk county ! Third bear we have seen in the yard this year ! But this is the biggest ! Last year we had a mom and three Cubs ! And three others ! Ten miles of woods behind our house ! See less deer then anything else but have seen two bucks and three does so far this year ! More then the last three years combined !
 
Hope to hell you had HIS coffee ready. He looks like he needs his caffeine and won’t take no for an answer.

That's a Beautiful thing to see, Redneck!!
One of my Best Friends lives in Potter County, PA, and has a mess of Black bears there nearly every day, except when Hibernating. A couple years ago one Momma was sporting a set of Quadruplets!!!
Hunters in PA harvest between 3,000 & 4,000 Bears every year, but last year it was over 4600 Black Bears.

Here's some Pics:
