    Default First sighting

    Saw a 5'6" - 6' black bear on the way home tonight after shrimping. Apparently they are starting to appear. Also saw a set of fresh tracks in the snow crossing the highway on the way home.

    Default Nope

    No. The hill that the bear was on is THE FIRST one that always has bears on it in Valdez. The orientation is perfect towards the sun and it is right next to the water. SO it is always, the first one to have bears on.

    Default I may

    I may check the woods this weekend. Last weekend I think there was 2 feet of snow in the woods. If anything, I will drop the stands and barrels a little in from the shore.
