You're more of a bear man that I am JD. Don't they breed about this time of yr? Think he was traveling through trying to run across a female? That town isn't that big, a bear that size that was living around there would've been noticed before then.I agree, he looks big. Big broad head and small ears is a good indicator.
Don't know about bears and looking for love at the grocery store but a fellow I worked with said one time if you want a good woman don't go to a bar go to Kroger's Dan.That could be. Their breeding season is May/June. Romeo must be on the prowl. I didn't know a bear would try looking for love at a grocery store!
