Texas regulations on bears is if you see one you can not shoot it. They are endangered in Texas so you are not allowed to harm them.

There were always reported sightings around East Texas but few confirmations as I recall..

"It is the same boiling water that softens the rice, which hardens the egg." It's not always about the circumstances, but what you are made of....

The ones at Big Bend are illegal immigrants, LOL. They actually were documented coming up from Mexico, according to part rangers there many years ago.

You'll find some may migrate down this side of the Red River from Oklahoma in the winter. Found tracks and had a reported sighting at Old Sabine WMA some years back. They are protected.

I saw a mama black bear and a cub in Big Bend a couple of years ago. I reported it at the ranger station and they gave me a signed certificate that I still have.
