This black bear came from the same place as the bear the week before. He didn't come as close this time, just foraging in the grass.

Back to my favorite spot along the Stud Mill Road. This guy was already on the powerline about 100 yards out ended up less than 20 yards before disappearing down a bank.

Father's Day Bear

Was down off the Stud Mill Rd again and saw this guy. I watched him forage for about a half hour untill he finally got down wind of me. It's a good size bear, been doing some rubbing. The other side is just the same. He also walks with a gimp. He has a problem with his front left paw, maybe from a trap or a fight. I couldn't see it very well. I saw another bear, but he had seen me too, I was in the truck at the time. Saw two moose, numerous rabbits, partridge and chicks, turkeys and chicks. So a pretty good few hours.

Sounds like a sports score, but it was a phenomenal day of sighting wildlife! The Stud Mill Road "Corridor" offers a unique opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts of all pursuits.
This little guy and his two siblings headed up a tree when I drove by. Momma was back in the woods about 50 yards and didn't seem to have a problem with me getting some pics, but I tried to not over stay my welcome.
I saw four two year olds together first. They didn't stick around long, although one went up a tree for a couple minutes, then thought better of it and came down. To quick for pics! I saw one foraging along the road side, but he saw me before I could get the camera focused. The other two I saw from my perch on the powerline. One was a hundred yards in one direction the other was 300 yards in the other. I also saw two of the moose from the powerline. When I went back to my truck to leave in the evening there were two other moose watching me from about forty yards.
