This morning I found bear tracks and poop out in front of the house. Medium size black bear. The poop was from apples. The apple tree is about 40 feet from the house. It is bear season and I have a tag. I wonder how apple fed bear tastes?

Yesterday I thought I figured out where Mr Bear was coming down off the hill. So I set up a trail camera. This morning at the crack of dawn I sneak up there to ambush Mr Bear. I just stayed a short time as the wind was wrong. I swung down by the camera. No pictures. So I head back to the house.

The apple tree is right in the corner of the yard. So 3/4 of the apples fall out side the yard and about 1/4 of them fall in the yard. We have been keeping the wind falls picked up in the yard. Yesterday afternoon I raked up those apples. Two 5 gallon buckets full to the top. I hadn't hauled them off. This morning about the top third of both buckets are gone. Some time in the night Mr Bear came in and helped himself. He thinks I am serving him. Me and this bear are about to do war.
