Fishing Companions

I had a little company on the river this weekend!  Although there are only three bears in this picture there were actually four, mama and three cubs.  It was tough to get them all in the same frame as the cubs always seemed to wander off.  They were very well behaved and spent the afternoon routing around on the far bank, looking for what ever bears look for in the leaves.  They seemed to be finding plenty to eat as they always seemed to be chewing on something.

Its great to see these guys on a regular basis.  I know a lot of folks have mixed feelings on the rebounding bear population here in New Jersey, but I like having them around.  As long as they stay on their side of the river!


  1. I love me some Jersey Bears. They are a great sight and make for an interesting outing for sure.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Very cool, unless they eat one of your fingers:

  3. Haha, a little piece of Alaska in your own backyard.

  4. Hi are these pics from KenLockWood Gorge?
