Black Bear are common in this area. There is a pair that stay out here on CB/KB, along with Coyotes and Fox and Deer. Wildlife on land and Sharks in the Ocean,who would have guessed!

...what they saw was Jonathon Barfield out roaming around again. On the Berger hunt...

...Now that's funny right there, I don't care who you are! Humor is the best medicine!
