Black Bear Quiz, Test Your knowledge ( Answers )

For no 3, the answer should be #4, 'anywhere provided theres suitable cover'.
I've seen them den inside stumps, in and under abandoned and derelick cabins. under rock outcrops and windfalls. The most common is probably an excavation on a hillside, only because its an easier place to scratch out a shelter.

question 3

I've got pretty limited experience with dens so I would guess #4 anywhere where there is suitable cover. I've heard of dens being at the bases of large trees or blowdowns, in old logging spill piles or logs stacked for hauling, big culverts...you get the idea.

Black Bear Quiz, Test Your knowledge ( Answers )

ok here we go again

Question # 4

Ok, we all know scouting for bear signs is the first step to success, saying it is actually easy but doing it is hard due to endless bear habitat ... where/what is the best location to start ?

1 on top of ridges
2 near water
3 near logging roads
4 in the open
5 none of the above ( tell us where )

questions from now on will be about bears in general, individual bears (sow, cubs, boars) and location of baits
it's getting interesting for sure
next question will be on thursday
