The bears are back

It’s been ages since I posted anything here, mainly because I didn’t feel I had much worth talking about. Things didn’t work out exactly the way I had planned this winter and I didn’t get out as much as I usually do. Hopefully things are about to change.

Yesterday was a pretty nice day weather wise, so I took a break from spring chores and took the dogs out on the mountain behind my house for some much needed exercise. I let them run ahead of the pickup until I thought they had enough, and was about to stop for lunch when I saw a pile of bear scat on the side of the road. The first I have seen this spring. I set up a calling stand nearby, but nothing showed up. If this crazy weather we have been having will settle down so I can get a better handle on the chores that have built up around home, I hope to be getting out a lot more.
