    Default Unit 14 bear sightings

    Any bear sightings in unit 14 area? Already have an area in mind, just trying to determine if its too early.

    Yes, there have been. Bears are out, so if you've got a spot in mind, it's time to hit the trail.

    I know its not technically unit 14 but one was seen on base today as well. Since fishing is going to start very late I guess its time to haul my butt up to some trails and try to find a bear.

    I'm currently taking a class from ADF&G representatives where we're working with video captured from collared bears. Of the six collars deployed last year, one of them didn't release properly last summer. They got it last week from a den along the Seward Highway south of Anchorage and that bear - along with her three cubs and another adult in the same den - is up and active and has been recorded on their trail cam. So yes, in low-snow areas, bears are up and moving.
