    This little 2 year old black bear was quite inquisitive yesterday. He hung around m stand for nearly 2 hours. He also ran off with my ASAT face mask.

    --
    Googled (from Keep Bears Wild):
    "Hibernation in black bears is dependent on food availability – meaning that once a bear is using more energy than they can find, they'll hibernate. Bears that continue to find enough calories foraging in the late fall and winter may go into hibernation later, or skip it altogether (these bears are more often males)."

    They will also wake up from hibernation if there is a warm snap

    After a many years of hunting bear, I've decided not to hunt them anymore. The thrill of seeing a bear in the wild will never leave.I miss hunt camp with the guys I've grown old with. A truly majestic beast ,thanks for the memory.

    We eat a lot of bear meat. I hunt a 2 bear county as they are EVERYWHERE. They have seriously damaged the deer populations
