Don was grumpy.
He’d booked a half-day guided fishing trip on the Manistee or Muskegon rivers, I don’t recall which, and he and his wife had taken a day off work to fish and celebrate an anniversary.

Michigan biologists seek public’s help in locating bear dens

While you’re enjoying time outdoors this fall and winter, keep an eye open for black bear dens.
