Waiting for humpies

Sitkan Hugh Bevan captured yet another trailcam portrait of one of Sitka’s local brown bears. This guy was scouting for humpies about 10 miles south of town, at 8:15 in the morning on July 31. Bevan first came across the no-name stream while hunting a few years ago, and noticed fish bones along the banks. He checked this trailcam on August 2, and discovered several other bears had been photographed as well. He’s decided to keep clear of “Scary Creek” until October!
