Another quiet day.
We would like to find out if the DNR greatly limited the number of hunting licenses in our area after the drought of 2020 destroyed bear food as did the frost, drought, and fires of 2021. If so, we sincerely commend the agency.
The picture is of cub Charlie Brown taking refuge in a white pine during a strong wind that makes the whole forest rustle like there is danger all around. To me, he looks scared.
Thank you for all you do.
