  3. Great photos.
    Fish and Wildlife people don't seem to get the recognition they truly deserve.
    Thanks Mike.

  5. I did this a few years ago! It was so much fun and Randy did a great job of talking to us about what they were doing, why etc. The den we went to had 2 little male cubs in it.

  7. Great program- from what I understand, Maine is a leader for the rest of the states on black bear monitoring and management.
