I am starting to really notice that they seem to love buckthorn leaves... I have observed them walk right past lush food plots and crops to feed in a buckthorn thicket. Watched one yesterday walk right thru a clover plot to feed on buckthorn, then later come back and eat a little clover before laying down.

If its edible bears will eat it, especially this time of year...notice how green those buckthorn leaves still are.

Do you have witch hobble in the upper midwest? The berries are only on them for a short time here in the northeast, but when they're in bloom, you can't even stand up near them...the ground is slippery with bear turds. They love those things.
