    There was a set of bear tracks in the snow last winter up on Sideling Hill WMA. It was the first set I of tracks I have seen in 25 years of hunting the Green Ridge State Forest. I talked to the Green Ridge HQ staff one day and they said the bears were mostly further west but more and more were showing up in Green Ridge.

    There are a few sections of public land on Backbone Mountain in Garrett, just east of Turkey Rock and Eagle Rock, that might be worth a look. Real rough in there with piles of boulders and ice damaged trees down everywhere. I hunt some private property around there and cut bear tracks every time I hunt it . . . mostly heading down into the public area.

    Not tracking recent changes in the bear law, but private property used to be required . . .

    I've seen two smallish bears in Green Ridge in the last ten years or so, one on Town Hill, just south of Mertins, the other down near Highway 51 where Keefer & Purslane come together.
