It has been a long winter and it is coming to an end. Hank and I had the privilege to participate in Maine’s Black Bear Study program. It is the longest and most extensive black bear study on the North American Continent. The world renown black bear biologist, Randy Cross along with biologist Lisa Bates and Matt O’Neil guided us on a 8 mile snow shoe trek to visit a sow bear named Lugnut with 3 male cubs. Maine’s black bears are very fortunate to have such dedicated and talented professionals looking after them. Take a look at the video we put together and you will see what I mean.
