How much scat does a bear put out on average? 1,2,3 or more times a day?
Tree scatching. Is there a period in which most claw marks are made...spring, summer or fall or is this an anytime necessity? how often does a bear feel the need to scratch a tree?
I know a bear dens in the winter, but during the other seasons does a bear bed down wherever it happens to be or does it find interim bedding areas for multiple nights until it moves to the next food source? What are typical bedding areas for a black bear spring, summer and fall?
Any other sign to look for that might be seasonal?
