Black Bear Marking

I made the set in late fall and this video was taken just before the first snowfall. This back bear stopped by to leave his scent on this marking tree in norther N.H. Encounters between black bears and my remote cameras like this one have become all too familiar. Now that the bears are sleeping for the winter I'm enjoying a grace period of filming without my cameras being eaten or tipped over..but it's shots like this that makes me miss them.
