I've been several different places in the Kenai mountains so far this fall looking for black bears and I've not seen a single blueberry. The bushes have leaves that are very yellow and missing pieces, either chewed or just deteriorated. Also seen very few crow berries and just slightly more low bush cranberries.
Any thoughts or insight on what causes such a wide spread terrible berry crops?
Associated question, how are the bears going to react to this? Stay out of the mountains, eat different things in the mountains or???
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
