Saw a Sow (Black bear) with 4 cubs while elk hunting last week. Didn't even know that was a thing, anyone else seen this before?

I'd wager its more common that we think (based on observation), but its probably rare the 4th one makes it too long. Its gotta be hard to keep 4 cubs alive and fed...

Had a sow with 4 cubs up a tree about 20' from the house one morning about 4 am... not quite what I expected when I responded to some noise...lol

Upper Michigan. First time I’ve seen it.

Seen it in PA. On one of the old Meateater podcasts there was a biologist on that followed a sow that had 6 cubs if I remember right. Think it was in Michigan.

Have 3 sows with 3 cubs each all within 3 miles from my house here right now.
Haven't ever seen more than 3 with a sow before around here.
