Finding Bears in North Carolina

Well, if at first you don’t succeed, try getting up at 5:00 a.m. next time. After a day of attempted bear sighting yesterday at Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge turned up mostly bare, we decided to hole up for the night and try another day of it. We arranged to park our RV in the lot for the night, and then, rolling out of bed before the sun did, we headed back into the park to see if we could catch some of these big hairy critters out for a frolic before their porridge cooled.

It didn’t take long for us to be rewarded for our efforts. And we were rewarded again and again. So we learned our lesson: if you want to see the bears, you have to follow their schedule and not your own. And it helps if you hang out near their grocery supply – in this case, the corn fields that the bears like to plunder. So we’re very happy about our bear sightings. They made up for our lack of red wolf sightings or green alligator sightings or purple unicorn sightings.
