    Went 4wheeling last sat here in Harlan Co. on black mountain to try to spot some bears and did I ever. In one short stretch of no more than a mile I saw 11 bears. Mom & 2 cubs, then Mom & 2 cubs, then a loner, then a Mom and 3 cubs. Conditions were perfect and I figure it was a rare day, them probably picking fresh grass on the strip roads, but I see them in these same areas plus others all the time in often in numbers.
    But it just goes to show how many we really have. Far more than they claim. The rifle season here is a joke as far as timing, almost mid December. The bow season is a good time, I believe late oct, but the gun season needs to be changed. Who even wants to hunt then. Bear in my garbage 2wice just in last couple weeks.

    Been several sightings in Lawrence co.,wife almost hit one the other evening.Id just as soon they go somewhere else myself,it's hard enough to dodge the deer,and keep them in control around the garden.

    I wonder when the annual western KY bear sightings will begin this year. Seems like a couple of years ago one was spotted in Warren and Todd counties. A year before there was one roaming around Ohio, Daviess and Muhlenberg counties.

    I saw a facebook post a grizzly was seen in Lewis county. But there was also a facebook post of a shark caught in Kentucky lake.
