    Default Black Bear Sighting!!

    Sort of... My mom lives up at the end of O'Malley and has fresh black bear tracks in her yard from today sometime. I'll try to get a pic before they melt away.

    No, but they usually have black bears hanging around. We set up a game cam in their yard last summer and only see blacks. Keep in mind, this isn't back in the woods, this is very much in town.

    Had tracks in my yard this weekend in Sterling. The sun had melted them out a bit so not sure if black or brown, but for sure a sow and cub.

    correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most critters leave more than one track?

    Known as Pogo Bears, one species of south-central Alaskan bear is known for hopping around on one foot, leaving a distinct single track pattern. Should be confused with neither Yogi Bears nor Yogi Berras. "Hey, hey, Boo Boo! If the people don't want to come to the game, nobody is going to stop them."

    I'll see if there's anything left of the tracks on Saturday to get a better pic with no shade, but bear tracks for sure.

    i'll get my camera out too, i've got piles of tracks look just like that one in my front yard...or at least real similar.
    a ruler would help out to for size.
    i'll be the first to admit if i'm wrong, but just looking at the pic i see a wayyy melted out moose track or something track but no bear track.
