While coon hunting with 2 friends we saw black bear scratch marks on a tree. The territorial scratch was about a week old. The scratch was about 6 feet off the ground and you could see the claw marks. It was located right on the trail going toward little black slough about 130 yds from where the trail splits to go to herron pond and little black slough.
I didn't have my camera with me but i will go back in a few days and take some photos.
She came up attached to a water sample bottle. Had a large number of young.
