Not that i could tell
BEAR HUNTERS HAVING A PHENOMENAL SEASON
I hunted the first two days and saw nothing. Last two years someone (not me) took a bear on the tract i hunt. This year, no one saw anything. That was a bit of a surprise since there were signs and scat all over the ridge for most of the fall as well as a couple of live sightings by our neighbors.
I'm not bummed, though. It is something of a miracle that there are bears to hunt in Somerset county at all. The Game Commission has done a great job on that score. The numbers are way up and their range has expanded out of the big timber up north to cover most of the state.
