My daughter and I saw that and were not sure if it was a bear or not. There is not a dog on this planet as large as that was. I thought maybe if it was not a bear, that it may have been a calf.Cool deal. I saw a dead bear on 67/167 just south of Searcy about 3 weeks ago. It was a cinnamon colored black bear, and it was no mistaking it for a dog. Even the wife noticed it and said it was a bear. She usually doubts every thing I say.
Good to know we weren't the only two that saw it. It was not a calf, and with that fur on it, it was not a dog. My father in-law almost hit a bear last summer about 15 miles from where the dead one was. I have a cousin whose kid worked over here at Greystone in summer of 2006. Aski him about the bear he saw about 3 times a week in the morning hours. I have seen bear tracks in Holland Bottoms, and there used to be a bear that would cross Hwy 89 in the early 80's before K-Mart was built. My late father saw him several times cross the road between Ray Chevrolet and where K-Mart is now.My daughter and I saw that and were not sure if it was a bear or not.

I'll take you word for it, and don't worry about me trespassing and shooting your deer, I couldn't remember exactly where it's at if I had too.:biggrin: The older I get, the more forgetful I am. I just remember seeing it between Searcy and Beebe. I hunt up in Greenbriar, but if the gas keeps going up, I'll be hunting more around Cabot. I've got a small place I can bowhunt on the edge of town, and if we sale our house and buy the land we want, I'll hunt it.Hudge
Right where you saw it, if you look on the East side of the freeway, that is my deer hunting grounds. The owners have been telling me for years that there was a bear in there but I have seen no sign of it. Unfortunately that is not in a bear zone.
