I hunt in Twiggs County and Friday night while sitting around the camp fire alone, I kept hearing something about 30 yards behind me. I finally got my good flashlight and low and behold there sat a bear watching me. I ran it off but it came back and sat closer. I finally found a good rock and ran it off again. About 5 minutes later I could hear what sounded like a dog whining for about 15 minutes. A fellow member watched a mama with cub about 2 hours earlier about 500 yards away. Could this have been mama watching me and when I ran her off, her cub was calling for her? We are covered up with bears BTW.
