Caught this guy on camera last night! Knew there was a chance of seeing one someday but never really thought it would happen. Pretty cool, now I hope he is long gone and doesn’t come back.

This right here! They could and did destroy our feeders on our lease in Pandale several years ago. A coon ain’t got nothing on the bear for sure.

Yep, this. We had them on a place I had in Loma Alta on the Devils River several years ago. They didn't just mess up a solar panel. They would totally destroy the entire feeder. And the game warden made it very clear they were protected and we had better have deep claw marks on us if we hurt one.

I think he busted a wate station.

Weird thing is, this picture was taken in a high fence game pen (probably 3-4 acres). He had to climb in (and hopefully out). There were several animals in pen and he didn’t seem to bother them at all. Guess he was just passing through.

I got 2 bottles of Sam Addams Utopia beer for Christmas. After sampling the first bottle I sold the second one here.

Glad I am not paying your feed bill...
