It's not every day that a person can go out in the woods and see a Black Bear, but you can easy go out and see evidence that they are around. Some readily found bear sign are territorial marking trees. The other day, I took the boys on a side-excursion to show them a "bear marker tree", which in this case was a powerline pole.
The bears also rub against the marker tree as evidenced by the snagged bear hair the boys spotted.
Let's see... our little excursion was a few days ago... "Hey, boys, are there any bears on top the mountain?" One says, "Oh yeah there is!" The other says, "Those are some pretty big bear!"
