OK, lets gather some research on any Bear sightings or any Bear tracks observed anywhere in Alaska. Please post the "General" location, as example: "South shore of Turnagain Arm". You can be as specific as you wish. It would be helpful if you could state Black bear or Brown bear track.
Here on the Hope Road the mountain slopes facing East through South-South West are brown even up to the tops.
2014 was a freakish early spring, 2015 might be the same or earlier.
Thank You for participating.
