Here's a question - I'm not a hunter of bears and I tend to avoid them at all cost, so I'm not too familiar with their habits. I do know that they don't sh*t in the woods - they prefer right in the middle of the road.
My question: When do they begin hibernating around these parts? (Region 8 - Vernon). I haven't been able to find anything consistent online except for when they 'wake up' in the spring. Now that there's some snow in the mountains I would assume any time now?
