A new bear oasis

Explore, explore, explore. I was riding along on my mountain bike, and a path caught my eye. I turned onto it, and I instantly knew that I'd found the best spot yet for bears near Labrador Valley. It's taking these almost invisible turns that often leads to the best finds.

There's water, there's a stomp trail that extends a long distance, and there are marking trees. Soon, I had a cam there, and the activity has been fascinating.

This was the first footage that I got in that area. It includes a bear swimming in a small pond, and then two bears at a marking tree. I was so overjoyed when I saw the footage on the cams!

Check out the short video. I might call this spot "Bear Land".

  3. I'm so glad you found this place and this one has enough water in it that they can really swim and enjoy themselves. I love that tiny Christmas tree that's there to not the one they rub on the one that looks like a tiny Christmas tree. It made me happy to see him swimming and the water hear the water Rippling. I think maybe you should call it bear Spa

  11. How exciting to find new bear spots! It's interesting to see the bear(s) intentionally walking over that tiny aspen sapling as they leave the scratching tree heading to the right.
