Thread: Knight Island Brown Bear??

  1. #1

    Post Knight Island Brown Bear??

    During the opening week of deer season I was fortunate enough to go deer hunting on Knight Island. During my many hours of glassing I found was appeared to be a brown bear. Of course this brown animal was going over a ridge in the sunlight and difficult to identify. My understanding is that Knight Island doesn't have brown bear. Curious to know if they exist on the island or not.

    I don't have any info on your question, but how did you do on your deer hunt? I've always wanted to hunt the Sound during opening week...maybe next year. Any luck?

    I've spent alot of time on Knight Island and never seen a brown bear; lots of deer and black bear though...bear actually swim quite well and there's probably no reason that a bear couldn't have swam over from Montague so it's definitely possible...it would be interesting if it could be verified. Or, it could have been a brown or cinnamon phase black bear; there's plenty of those down here in southeast.
