    I have heard rumors of a bear being shot around Cornishville in Mercer Co. Is there any truth to this? Has anyone heard of a bear shot in Mercer? I also heard that maybe it was out on the KY river.

    Years ago, I was hiking through a large clearing in Mercer County, near Terrapin. It was bordered on one side by a large cedar forest, and on the other by a steep hill with a creek at the bottom. This area was chock full of deer and turkeys, but received very little hunting pressure. There were also a lot of coyotes around. Anyway, I came upon a track in the mud that puzzled me. It was more rounded than that of a dog, and it was also about twice as large as even the biggest dog track. Some friends of mine that lived in the area owned a couple of great pyrenees (which are very large dogs) to guard their sheep, and this track put theirs to shame. Although I had never imagined that area being able to support bear(s), I could not, and still cannot to this day, think of anything else that could have made that track. It looked like a fat human foot, but with less of an arch, and claw marks.

    I'll never know if it was actually a bear track. But if they can show up in Boone County, they could show up in Mercer.
