Good stuff. Got any bird feeders out? Around here the folks with summer cabins leave burgers on the deck for the griz (even though it's illegal and pretty dumb).

Certainly the biggest black bear I've seen. Great job managing the blacks, by the way. Thanks for sharing.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.
