  4. As recently as last week, my son told me he had seen bear paw prints in our wood lot. This weekend, I am guessing, they will definitely be somnabulating!(Temperature chill factors expected of -30F.)

    Mary,  The composition of the bear milk is fascinating! And how it changes as the cubs grow. Wow! Awesome column! Thanks, Judi
