Here in Va we have had an increased number of bears showing them selves all over the place in May we had one in our front yard for 2 hrs and wife had to call game warden to get him to move last week I was out for a bike ride up the hollow and just happened to bring my cam to record the ride home .as I had been seeing a lot of deer. this trip was a little different. if you watch the video at the beginning you will see a mother bear cross the road way ahead of me , you need to look hard after that a cub crosses right in front of me and was more scared then I was . take a look.

Nice little video there. I lived in Pocahontas County, WV for 4 years...right in the middle of the Monongahela National Forest...and bears were an every-day occurrence. I used to go "ramp hunting" and morel hunting quite a bit, as well as hiking, fishing, hunting, etc. Tons of bears! One thing you NEVER want to do is get between mama bear and her cubs! She gets a little "testy" when that happens. Also, the more populated an area gets, the more of a "dumpster food supply" is available. Snowshoe Ski Resort was not far away. There were a lot of motorcycle and mountain bike activities in the Spring/Summer/Fall and there were plenty of condos and lots of restaurants on top the mountain with a bunch of "garbage" that the bears liked to "forage".

BTW...I think I've been to Washington, VA before. Isn't there a pretty famous restaurant there? "Inn at Little Washington" or something like that. Ate there once and had, absolutely, the best meal at a restaurant in my entire life!
