Just wondering if the blackies are out yet around kenai???...went down last weekend and scouted the hills from about the sunshine cafe to skilak lake and did not see a thing
We saw a few in the hills including 2 grizz on the river driving back from Homer last Wednesday night.
seward bears out
Not sure about the western Kenai, but I saw 2 black bears near Exit glacier today (monday). Friends saw one on McHugh creek yesterday near Anchorage. Folks on a wildlife cruise out of Seward today saw 8 black bears. I think they're starting to move and feed now and the hunting should be picking up. I'm hoping the late spring/longer winter produces some thicker-haired bears. Let me know how you do.
