I own 100 acres in the Cavan Swamp, west of Mount Pleasant, and put up trail cameras to monitor wildlife activity. On the nights of December 4 and 5, one of the cameras recorded a HUGE Black Bear, which must have weighed close to 400 lbs. It’s by far the biggest bear I’ve ever seen and, being an avid hunter, I’ve seen hundreds of bears.
