Bear and Possum


I went out late Friday evening to check the cameras due to the weather forecast for the weekend and I'm glad I did. Showers and thundershowers yesterday. Rain and snow mix today. I'm ready for Spring and 70 degree days. The heavy wet snow we got must have covered the sensors on the cameras because I didn't get pics from right after the snow started until  a couple of days later when it must have melted.
The first pic is a fairly good size bear. Looks like it's coat is in really good shape for this time of the year. The pic was taken just as it started to snow the night we got the 18" storm.
This possum is busy trying to find something to eat in the snow.



















Not sure what this deer was doing other than trying to fight the camera.

The bear appears to be in good shape, you think because of a relatively mild winter? Possum looks good too. Don't know about that deer tho.

I always enjoy your trailcam photos! My son hasn't been keeping up with his lately!

Gotta love the possum. I'd say he was starving, delirious, or crazy. Or just had a death wish. Hope he made it to nightfall.

Nice shots! That is a healthy looking bear. The possum looks a bit lost on the snow!

As always, I love when you post bears! Our bears are still snug in their dens in NY. I had the privelege of checking on a few last week.

black Bear hunting is really a favor sport among predators, specially in the US. However, sadly every year you will find still hunting related accidents. This information is made to help educate the typical hunter on hunting safety when bear hunting. Hopefully, this short article might help prevent a few of these accidents or even a fatality.
