So same 10 yr old female i had on cam a few months back. Running with what is most likely her "baby daddy" in a non breeding related social encounter. Uncommon, but not unheard of. After parting ways with him (4 yr old 140lb male) she went straight back to her cubs (which were ear tagged just 3 days prior to this video). Tracking collars are amazing things.

Negative, hes fair game. Im calling bears in the area :lol:
Called one in yesterday and the sneaky bastard got to 30ish yards without me knowing, winded me and busted. Funny how they can sneak in without a noise, then sound like a schoolbus crashing through the woods the next second.

I agree they sure can be sneaky. I've never called one in that I know of, but a friend has called in a few. Last one he called in he killed at about 15' when he heard one twig snap behind him. Turned around and there was a 6 footer looking right at him.
