I finally found my pics, although looks like I only got 5 shots off and 2 of them was him shaking water off, little blurry urghhhh. Was around Golden BC when I was driving the back roads through the mtns and I thought I saw a blackbear, but to no avail. It wasnt 3 minutes up the road that I ran into a wildlife officer, asked me if I seen anything, and he told me no black bears around here, would I show him. Said if I could bring my camera ;-) . Sure as heck, he drove probably 300 yards up the mtn on this dinky little trail, stopped the truck.........this bear wasnt more than 30 yards from us in I guess visiting his favourite watering hole, the problem is the grass was as tall as I am. Jumped in the back of the box of the truck, he said you need to go higher, so jumped on the roof of the truck and shot these off. Kind of cool. Never seen one in the wild. He estimated this was a 3 year old boar, 350 pounds or so. I have to say, for such a large animal, he walks around like he is in stealth mode, you cannot hear him. Those large pads on his feet are incredible. I can see how someone could accidently walk into one of these guys. This guy was suposedly still with momma bear, usually leave home around 3-4 years old, but never seen her, then again like you could through all that stuff...........we didnt stick around obviously long, but what a thrill! PEEK A BOO! have 3 shots of him every minute or so being snoopy to see what we were doing. When he finally came out of his bath ..... then he was gone!
