Very interesting video. Didn’t realize they hung around that long after they woke us before they left to forage.

Buddy of mine used to go with biologists and check cubs in the winter dens.said the mom was asleep and the cubs was frisky and playing and nursing.
I know of two bear dens. Found them while hare hunting. One was under an uprooted tree. I was standing on it in snowshoes and noticed a wisp of steam coming out of a little icy hole at my feet. Went in with a state biologist and it was a young boar. The other was under a boulder. That was a boar too. I have a fox den on my land. We watch the kits every summer.

Excellent. Handsome bear
The bears slip the pads on all 4 feet while in the den so it takes them a bit of time to get out and about in the spring.
Very cool video. Thanks for sharing.
