    Default Bear in 82A

    Well Iíve had the farm for 22 years now and early this morning I got pics of my first bear!! Funny enough also a couple hours later I had deer come right in on the same path I guess to check it out?

    Awesome! It's good to see the Black Bear population is healthy and rising and that their range is expanding. Conservation techniques that are being used in Ontario seem to be working well.
    Did you know that 4/3 of people have trouble with fractions?

    Having never really been exposed to bears, will this effect my deer population at all?

    Not really, there are lots of bears in southern Ontario in the same areas as deer.
    Unless there is an explosion of bears which will have an impact on fawns.

    We occasionally have them at our camp. Camp is on the Saugeen between Flesherton and Durham. It's been 6 or 7 years since we have had one come through.

    Any neighbors in the area keeping bees? Seem to attract them. I've heard a couple bee keepers in the area were given permission to shoot bears that were smashing their bee boxes. Been running trail cams for 15 years and no bears for me but there has been the odd sighting.

    They have been giving the beekeepers trouble. Have to electric fence the bee yards. I have a few hives, keeping my fingers crossed. There was one in the area about 15 years ago, It must have moved on. old243
