I went out this past Monday morning to set up my trail camera. There was a place 160 yards off of the road that I had walked through the previous evening with my son. It looked promising for holding some deer. There were lots of trails, rubs and even a couple of scrapes. At 6:00 a.m. in the dark, I walked in to the woods using my cell phone as my flashlight. I was walking into the wind and, as I was approaching my destination there was a loud noise of a substantial sized animal suddenly bolting a short distance then stopping. I turned my phone light and less than 12 feet away I found this bed. I took two pictures and didn't want to scare what I thought was a bedded buck any more so I turned back towards the road. I hung my camera on the nearest tree and left. This morning I went back to deer hunt. When I was done I climbed down to grab my camera and to check out the bed in daylight. I took another picture and looked closely and ended up finding bear fur in it. So, it turns out that this past Monday I walked right up on a bedded bear! What a cool experience. This is an awesome looking bed too.....

Cool! I had a couple dogs that were great at finding and driving out bears from their dens.
