Summer plot visitor
Probably not what you're thinking. This is at our club in Alabama which is approximately 50 miles north of Pensacola. First time we have had a bear sighting in the 8 years I have been a member. This plot and my plot 1/2 mile to the South are the only two summer plots in this part of the club. Not sure if this has any "bearing" or not for the visit.

cool critter, I'm glad they're making a comeback in Louisiana. Can't wait to hunt one.

A cell camera over your food plot? You sir are not a real hunter.

(This is me making a joke based on other threads on this subject)

Anyway.
Good pic. We do not have them up here. Not sure how I feel about them spreading the way they are.

I am an avid outdoorsman. But I don't understand this sentiment...

I can't wait till they make a comeback from near eradication so I can kill one.

I'm all for killing for food. Or because something is overwhelming the natural eco-system (hogs). Just don't see the thrill in killing for killing sake.

Bears are pretty good table fare.

Near Brewton ?? Good friend on mine lives between Milton and Navarre and his neighborhood has frequent bear sightings in person and on home security systems. Figuring a male bear has a territory/travel range up to 300 miles, I'm surprised you don't see more.

If they get to a point to where they can be managed as a renewable resource (like deer, turkey, etc) it's a conservation win.

If you took a look at my freezer you'd probably understand why I want to hunt bear. I eat just about anything on 4 legs.

In their historic range and current available habitat Bears in LA are at and beyond carrying capacity RIGHT NOW and have been for nearly a decade.

We see them regularly here in St Francisville....

They destroy cornfeeders, and a few stands as well.

Walking out a dark is a little creepy....

What part? I hunt north of town, haven't had the chance to see one yet. I've seen a few folks put trail cam pics of them up.

Yes, south of Brewton. There are A LOT of bears in the stretch between Gulf Breeze and Navarre. A co-worker lives between the two and has had multiple sightings at his house. He videoed one from his car running down the yards of his neighborhood. The north side of Navarre backs up to Eglin AFB property and sightings are extremely frequent in that area. We were surprised since this is the first time seeing one, then again not surprised that he is in the area.
