tracking bears by the sea
you may already know that bears love the sea. I did not know this until I decided it was a good idea to move 20 miles out onto the Atlantic. Bears are swarming here, you are never without tracks. Pretty lucky for me cause I have been tracking bear for nearly two decades.
I started out small, but now have the help of my two assistants, wolf dog and hound dog.
Wolf dog, always ready for the track, is eager and lively. She uses her agility and endurance to assist in the trials. Hound dog is the mastermind behind the operation. She presses her powerful ears against the dirt to listen for the vibrations of passing bear. She is demonstrating this below.
