Dont think it is a bear though.

The walk would be exciting...but the wait in the stand before first light would probably get me more. Every critter that crinkles a leaf would send a shiver down my back scared

I hunted about 15-18 miles north of Sanderson towards Ft. Stockton just west of were the Hwy turns toward Sheffield in 1994 for mule deer. One of the guys had a corn feeder in draw called Big Draw close to the Longfellow. He said just before dark a large black animal come in between him and the feeder, run the deer off and then turned towards him and stood up on its hind legs. Was 100% sure it was a bear but ground was to hard to see tracks.

The biologist on the ranch we hunted said that they had started to move into Texas from Mexico a few years before that one was spotted out there due to the bad drought in Northern Mexico. Now with trail cams there are more and more of them being seen.
