We had a bear come into our yard last night and the night before. Our trail cam showed the bear in mid-December for several nights. Our feeders are strung on a rope about 20' up between trees so he could not reach them, but we had a flat feeder on a pole. We now bring it in-this bear is not hibernating so seems like this is becoming a new behavior if feeders are accessible. Possibly climate change impacts as well make it easier to not hibernate with warmer days and less snow.
