Bear Following Trail I found a bear track and followed it four or five miles. It went southward in a perfectly straight line, turning out for nothing, over hills, swamps, ledges and a river. Was this bear on his way to his den? Why else would he go so straight without stopping for anything, not even to look for food? Would he be liable to travel that way as much as ten miles, or how far? Will he return by the same route and would it pay me to set a trap somewhere on the trail?
I think the bear was going to his den and that he may travel twenty miles or more before he holes up. I dont think he will come back by the same route and would not set a trap there unless the place is particularly a good one.
