Based on our limited, preliminary data, bears in the UCBS study area seem to be growing faster than their counterparts in MDIFW’s Northern and Downeast parts of the state. Also, initial radiotelemetry data suggest that UCBS females have larger home ranges and move more than those in MDIFW’s study areas. Hopefully, as we continue the study, we will gather enough data to determine if these differences are real, and define any bear management implications.<<<Read the Entire Study>>>
