Bear Pics From NY, Pig Roast

Not sure how old these are, at least 8 years ago during an August Pig Roast at Family Property in NY, just up a Mountain about 2 miles north of Delaware River, closest mapped town is Hancock, NY, ...aboout 30 minutes South on Rt 94.

Anyway, he came into camp from Pig Cooking & Deer Feeder Food still in bag (in preparation of hunting season), ....no feeder the few weeks prior to opening day, ...whatever is NY Law regarding pre hunting feeders. Anyway, he was about 250lb's, young, but off on his own, and away from mom I'd say since that spring.

Yeah that is one of the amazing things I wasn't used to when I moved to the states...Black Bears on the front porch, Deer in the backyard, Humming Birds at the special bird feeder, Raccoon visits and in the late summer waking up because a Skunk passes by the house
I grew up in a rather big city (about the size of Boston) All wild life I saw was either inside a fence or behind bars. No surprise I love it here in the North East
Just be glad the lil guy didn't bring his Mommy along

This is in mountains where for the most part no people live, ...he was untagged and completely wild, I have all footage on 8mm camcorder and thru a pc tv tuner played the video and took snap-shots when I thought would make a good pic. But I know where your coming from, its wonderful to live with the wild, not against it.

Its great to have them in the back yard, this bear though was wild, yet came right into camp and allowed me and other's to get fairly close. It was a great 3-day weekend pig roast thats for sure. Riding motocross bikes, four wheelers, fishing, swims in the river, .....even in Aug. ...Very Cold, but worth it!

We have a few of his cousins roaming around chose to us, however, seeing that his cousin is a brown bear (grizzly) there is little chance of getting the great pictures you have of Mr. Black. . .

Ya I'd have too agree, probably best not to get too close of them.

I'm sure you heard of Timothy Treadwell ...Wiki Link

Lets not have a repeat!

There was a few close up's taken of this little guy, ...but the furthest from his mind was people, he wanted FOOD! He stayed around all weekend, and when needed rest room breaks (into the trees, not @ Dunken Donut's) during the nights, wasn't too "relaxing" as most other times usually are. ... Look'n around in 360o hearing all the sounds of the woods will make getting the job done quick and have ya running back into the pop-up! lol

Enjoy them from inside the house or from a good distance away, much more relaxing that way.

Just like SledgeDG said, we were lucky his Momma wasn't around!

So you be careful, family and friends too, ...just never know we're they're lurking if you already see them at home.

I'm sure all know how to paly it safe and to live with them, giving the "right of way" to them.

The only problem with getting close to a brown bear is you are the food.

Must of the people who live in the area carry two things when out hiking, or just enjoying the great out doors, and that is at least a .357 or larger equalizer. Then there is a canister of bear spray. All smart things to have when you are not planning on feeding the bears or cougars your own body.

Almost everyone who lives there is...


Always Packing and for Good Reason, ...Cause when it comes down to it, Bear Snacks (me or else) Not Included, Diner is Closed!

Nice country in that area. Probably decent fishing too. I have a lease in the NZ near Williamstown, no black bears but plenty of deer flies when it's time to try and get work done. Going to try those Tred-Not strips next year.
