increased bear numbers

Elk Camp: Bear!

Luke Clayton

Folks, I'm calling in from elk camp again this week.  The numbers of black bear again this year are just tremendous!  We've had some close encounters, and that's enough to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.  

Luke Clayton just returned from an elk hunt in Colorado mountains.  Bear numbers and sightings were at an all time high.  A couple close encounters gave Luke a photo to remember, and another guide an opportunity to share his candy bar.  Larry Weishuhn gives some insight into causes for the increased numbers.  Plus, as usual, a good bit of ‘hard core’ campfire talk!
