        Been told of tracks on JBER, but haven't seen anything other than a wolf.

          Have always wanted to make a trip to SE. Living in Anchorage working with the airline kills my off time. Pics were great

                    In my experience, the larger bears are out of the den, during the warm of the day. They are not traveling far, and return in the evening to rest. Over the years i have seen bears out in the Alaska Range in late March depending on the warm weather. The are neither very active, nor overly mobile as their metabolisms are still warming back up.

                        The ones on the southern slopes will feel the heat of the sun and will come out and sun themselfs for a bit and then will climb back into there den.

                        When the weather gets warm enough that the melt off makes thier home a water hole and they are not comfortable there is when they will start to get out and start to explore the new grass. ( anybody see any new grass yet? LOL,) ( talking the interior)

                        The sows will stay closer to the dens for awhile to take care of the cubs, the boars will be a little more adventurious.

                        Watch for the plugs, then watch your ass, lol, they are hungry,lol

                          I was up to the top of Bear Mountain yesterday. Beautiful weather, clear and lots of sunshine with temps 25 - 35. Lots of snow and ice on the approach but south side of the peak snow free and pretty warm ... but windy. Occ fresh moose tracks but no bear sign - was surprised as I anticipated at least some tracks. I would anticipate a lot of sightings in the next week or two if the warm weather continues.

                            Oddly The first bear sign I generally see; is on the shoulder of the Hope Road. That is where the first Greens show up, and with the shoulders still soft tracks are easy to spot. About 6 times a day I glass all the hillsides expecting to see bears first up in the snowfields. As I say more often than not the first sign that I see is when walking on the road shoulder. I did go down to the beach Tuesday, and walked the beach, but no sign. I also hiked down "Bear'Bait Alley" and only encountered barrel tracks. It is some much fun this time of year to track the "Barrels" to there little hide'aways.

                              heading out tomorrow up to areas 14 and 16 to glass the areas and maybe stumble across a early spring fuzzy friend. I will take photos and a report of what I see (no snow machine or quad as I will be humping it back into the bush).
