9/4/06 – Brianna Luduigson and her family had a great encounter with a black bear on Sawbill Lake yesterday. They were out fishing when they heard a bear splash into the water just north of the Sawbill campground. They watched it for several minutes while it appeared to simply enjoy a little soak. It eventually ambled back up on shore and into the forest. Although it was sighted within a quarter mile of the campground, no one saw it in the campground overnight. It is always fun to see a bear in the wilderness that is not actively trying to eat your food. – Bill
