We are now in hyperphagia phase. I've never completely figured out where the bears spent their time in this phase. This year, I have trail cameras in new places where I've seen bear sign to see if I can catch a glimpse of them.
So far, it's been a success. I've learned that they love to swim and bathe at this time of year, one of the hottest times of year. This bear was about to slide into the pond for a swim.
They like to dig for ants at this time of year.
And they even mark trees at this time of year.
I made a short video including the footage of them swimming, checking out an anthill, and tree marking.
