On the trail of PA black bears (video)

I'm a newbie and I learned a lot about bear habitat and general bear stuff from this video. It may help some of you guys too

That was interesting. I'd like to see the same thing for Colorado to see if it differs any.

Thanks for posting it.

the first five minutes of this explain why I keep saying you wont kill big old bears over bait consistently besides during the rut they have extremely good memory. I think a 10 to 15 year old bear is one of the hardest animals to kill and when my group kills the old bears it done over a bed first sit, drives, or tracking good video makes me want to get back out their and target bears this fall again.

Interesting stuff with a young Gary Alt. Too bad for him he'd become the most hated man in PA about ten years after that video was made.

I especially liked the part where they were rubbing the vick's on the cub prior to putting it up for adoption. I always knew they could place cubs with other mothers but had no clue this is how they fooled the mother's nose.
