Black Bear Photo Gallery

We just added a new photo gallery to our Trip Report page. This was from our exploratory trip to the Outer Banks to photograph black bears. The population of bears here is the largest in the world. Normally black bears average from 300 to 600 lbs. The bears here can weigh anywhere from 600 to 1,200 lbs. The reason for this is, the bears here are not forced to hibernate like their West coast cousins, they can forage all year for food. Which allows them to get massive.

We went there in May when we had a break, and checked out what was going on. We were for sure not disappointed. What an amazing experience for the SDM crew. Click HERE to check out the gallery.
