Recently, my wife, Keri and I attended the Earth Day celebration in Jim Thorpe. As usual, we parked in Glen Onoko State Park and pedaled our way into town. We have done this so often that the trip seems routine. As usual we walked around the town, visited the shops and viewed he vendors’ wares. It was fun, but commonplace. It wasn’t until I was driving through town when I was hit with an “ah ha!” moment.

When I read the PA Game Commission bear harvest report, I became anxious when I saw that the Carbon County bear harvest fell to 47 in 2014 from 57 in 2013. If memory serves correctly, the 2013 Carbon County harvest was lower than the 2012 harvest. What made me anxious was the possibility that the Carbon County bear population was shrinking. Other possibilities are that there are fewer hunters seeking bears or the increased amount of private land off-limits to hunting might have helped to lower the bear harvest numbers. However, I received reason to be hopeful that the population of our largest furry neighbor is doing just fine.
