    That's about 12 miles as the crow flies from where we are. We haven't seen any yet, but we will one day.

    Same here in Breathitt. At least 75 sightings in the last 2-3 months. Mostly within 1 mile +\- of my house.
    And my buddy had over 700 pics of a bear on his camera. But that was in Wolfe County.

    the bear biologist says when you start seeing sows and cubs you have a pretty good population, the boars are roamers. I hope mine roam somewhere else.

    Had one in Muhlenberg Co. last fall. It was visiting a backyard in a subdivision. Daviess Co. also had one. It may have been the same one.
