I can tell by the plants the momma bear is w/her cubs and of course she would be unless something happened to her. As we all know (hopefully) that a mamma bear will protect her young ferociously untill the end but I have also heard that if someone is in the woods and they see cubs its already too late for you in most cases because once your that close to them she already has a bead on you and that thumping your feet feel on the ground is her charging at you.
I personally dont hunt, its just not my bag but Im not stupid enough to go into the woods unarmed because that could be the last mistake someone makes. A person could come across a rattler or anything. I wont trek far into the woods or forrest with anything less than a .357 mag., it just aint smart.
