You never know what you'll see out there! A recent cut-and-paste log on the TEXAS series.

Hard to tell much in the pics of the 'bears', could be the feral pigs as far as I could tell. And that looks like a deer scrape to me. Bear scratches leave claw marks below it and are not so long.

I was going with a near certain case of mistaken identity. Is it being suggested that someone was playing a practical joke on a cacher?

I have seen some very big animals in the park with funny colors like red and blue. I chalked it up to someone hitting the animal with a paint balls

Large pigs, I believe. Run into some very large ones, one in the 450-500lb range, in GBP last summer. Bears. That's funny.
Why am I all sweatty and late? Umm...

Looks like the photos were taken with a phone and are not clear at all. These could be feral pigs. However, bears are moving into East Texas and Texas Parks & Wildlife tracks bear sightings which are reported to the East Texas Black Bear Task Force. They have created a poster for hunters that shows the silhouettes of a bear and a pig, showing how similar they are.

Feral cachers are the most dangerous of all.

I forgot to mention, that while black bears vary in color, East Texas black bears are black, not brown as described in the log.

Used to watch my dad and a friend of his catch those types of "bears" when I was a little girl. They make some great bacon! :teasing:

So it was thacatfish? He was out tasting bbq last week, probably still has a faint bacon smell on him.

Someone killed a black bear up in Kerr County last August. I believe he got in a bit of trouble for it... http://www.ksat.com/...rd/-/index.html

But, yeah, methinks those were just feral pigs in GBP.
