Four days after the hunting season for Black Bear ended, one sauntered down our driveway.
Never saw the ninja-of-the woods, but he/she left some nice tracks.
Came down the hill and disturbed some of the bank.
We had been working above this area planting chestnut trees. Badger Boy was with us and indicating he smelled something. NOTHING gets him going like a deer scent or a sighting. His behavior was a little different, so we thought maybe an older deer scent. Then we saw the bear tracks later that day.
Duh! When the dog behaves unusually, pay attention!
