Yes, there is Bears in Bartow County. The (DNR) have caught several in my area over the years, since I was a kid. I live not even a mile from McKaskey Creek Camp Ground. I have lived in this neighborhood all my life, they use hit some bee hives behind my moms house every summer.

Wow. That looks like a pretty solid bear. I would definitely ground check that one!
Like I said, I have never seen one, but this track came off of Oak Street, bet you know where that is;)

..A few years back now a bear was shot in Allatoona WMA. It was not legal to shoot them at that time in that area. It's body was found by deer hunters just across GA 20, west side, from the check stand. I've hunted up there for many years and have never seen a bear, or bear sign.
