Hook and Hunting: Hibernation is Over

Posted: Updated:

With all the snow on the ground, it's kind of hard to believe today is the first full day of spring.

Even though it's still cold out, certain environmental cause have bears moving.

The longer daylight hours are bringing bears out of their dens.

After their long winter sleep they are, as you can expect, hungry.

Smells form garbage, bird feeders, and grills attract bears.

The DNR says they have had several reports of bears going through garbage already.
