Hi folks, sorry we have been away for a few days.  Lots of bear stuff going on that has kept us busy.   As you can see, ABR has big bears visiting the facility from time to time.  These bears are looking for a handout but sorry guys you will have to find food on your own.  We have been told by the experts that the soft mast, berries, has not been good this year and the acorn crop, hard mast, may not be the best this year.  As home owners, we will have to be extra careful with our garbage and birdfeeders because bears will check out our homes in hope that there will be an easy meal for them.
