    Bears?? You've got BEARS??!!!! Aggghhh!!
    Seriously, those are some beautiful pictures; I just had no idea there'd be bears around there. Looks like he didn't want his picture made, huh?
    Thanks Sam. Those are awesome!

    There are a few bears here around home, 45 miles north of Little Rock,but not many. You get 5 to 10 miles or so north or west of here and you get a few more, go 10 to 15 more miles in those directions and you get into lots of them in the Ozark National Forest area, the north west 1/4 of the state. Most of north west and north central Arkansas has bears The one in the pictures was 70 miles south west of here, near the Ouachita National Forest that that runs from the Arkansas River south along the west 1/3 of Arkansas down to almost the LA. line, quite a few bears there too. Also if you get over where the Arkansas River hits the Mississippi River in the White River Refuge area there is a good population of them.

    He tore it off the tree, but lucked out and it didn't hurt the camera.

    Good pics as usual Sam. I don't believe he cared for that camera.

    Nice pics, you can probably forget about the deer now.I had problems with bears tearing my feeders up down here in the Atchafalaya Basin. Bears are becoming plentiful. I saw 7 different bears in one location. They are protected down here.I had to start feeding with soybeans instead of corn. The bears left the soybean alone and the deer around here just can't get enough of them.

    Got no bears around here unless you count my wife. The deer go for beans here before they do corn if they have a choice.
