They come out at night!!

They don't ride, but they do come out at night. I looked out my kitchen window last night, with all the snow we have gotten the last few days,I could see a big black bear out in the side yard looking for food. I was really surprised to see a bear out as cold as it was outside. It was 18 degrees and I don't know how much snow we got because of the wind piling it up in drifts. The wind chill was below zero and I thought the bear would be hibernating. I used my Nite Rider light to check out the bear till my wife made me stop. She was afraid he might think we were food and come get us.

I think hibernation is tied to breeding season more than seasonal temperature.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.

The bear came back this afternoon, so they come out during daylight also. I went out and ran it off so the deer would come back. I was told they only hibernate a few months. I know the 8 point buck has been chasing the does around, so it's mating season for deer and bear.
