I took him directly to where a nice black bear was frequenting in Loudoun County, Virginia. In some spots, 4-6 inches of snow was still on the ground. With the extremely cold temps that we've been experiencing lately, the fresh tracks barely melted away at all. The definitions of toe pads, palm pads, and even claws were incredibly preserved.
Pictures and measurements were taken.
I'll share this one, but if you want to see more, check out Ed's blog post about it here: Bear Tracks.
