The bear probably left because of the bad smell.

I’ve seen 8 so far this spring in the northwoods. None too close.

I remember back in maybe ‘72 or ‘73, hunting for deer near my cabin at a 3500 ft altitude in northern Idaho. The mosquitoes were torturing me all day...and no deer. Two groups of bears, moms and kids, came by. Later, a huge male black bear came by. I let fly (there was no bear season at that time in Idaho). It stood, ROARED, and ran off into the woods. I tracked him a short distance when I found him wedged between two trees. Six big guys were required to transport the beast on three stretcher logs. It was, according to a hound hunting friend, the record in Idaho, although no efforts of registration was ever taken. It was pushing 600 lbs.

I almost had a collision with a black bear about two months ago right here in my complex (morris-northern NJ)

This guy kept his calm while the bear was checking him out.

A liberal tree-hugger in California wasn't so lucky. A while back, some guy, I think from Berkeley, chained himself to a tree so the loggers wouldn't cut it down. A bear came along; the guy panicked, couldn't unchain himself from the tree, and became an easy lunch for the bear.

That’s quite a bit closer to a bear than I’d care to be.

I'm in Monmouth there was a sighting recently in Freehold.

In fact there have been verified sightings in all 21 counties.

Couple of years ago a bear lost the longevity race with an SUV in the S turns on Rt. 23N just past the dam. The SUV could be fixed. The bear - not so much.

But I guess it's OK because your NJ neighbors don't want to hunt the pretty cuddly bears...

It should be mandatory that anyone who puts a 'ban the NJ bear hunt' bumper sticker on their vehicle also install a bear baiting station in their back yard so they can have the opportunity to have close encounters of the bruin kind with their favorite wild animal...

100,000 trees in the forest and the bear picks this one to climb!

Just kill him!

If you are in a tree stand you must be armed!!

If you are phographing birds just get eaten by the bear, you won’t be missed!

One of my employees father lived in Salmon Idaho and would kill 6-8 bears a year to feed his hounds.
