Here is one I had on camera at our place about 7 miles west of woodville on Hwy 24. I have another pic somewhere of one with a collar on. They are always messing with or looking at my camera when it takes a pic. weird
We have quite a few of them closer to Pickneyville...
I was on the stand with a 45-70 and 3 bullets 2 years ago and a black bear came and sat down about 100 yards away close to dark. I shot in its direction before I would get out of the stand but it came right back... Shot a little closer in its direction and it finally took off. Kept that gun loaded the whole time on the way back to the bike.
