Col Parks and Wildlife advises that bears are coming alive again.Early campers just secure camp sites and trash. Estimate is 60% of collared bears have left their dens.

Dan,

I just checked my trail cameras yesterday and our PA black bears are afoot and about. I was going to camp out in my West Woods at the leanto for our spring gobbler opener on April 30 until I saw two big bear droppings inside my leanto!

I will hike to the West Woods for the opener of Spring Gobbler rather than have a 500-pound bear snort in my shorts in the camp at midnight. Such thrills are reserved for the youth with better "tickers."

Adam

LOL, a few years back, I had my son up in the Routte Forrest on a spring
camping trip. We noticed some black tracks around where we pitched camp.....
Marc was nestled up against my back like a second skin! Had no bear encounters till the next day......he knew not to get between mama n cubs.
Brings back memories!

Put my bear baits out yesterday... no tracks were seen, but I expect they are around. Season opens here on the 15th, so hopefully I have something hitting by then.
