The first two weeks of October were as nice as many late summer days to do what you wanted to do outside. Construction jobs that had been put off could be worked at in your shirt sleeves. Fourth cut hay, grain, soybeans and corn silage were fun for farmers to work at when mitts or coats were not needed.
Black bears which usually eat or knock down hundreds of areas in corn fields about 100 square feet each time they eat were accompanied by a bear hole dug in the soil. The bear hole is usually about the size of a wheelbarrow tub. It gives them a nice cool place to sleep near each eating spot. Usually the bears go back to the woods or a creek for a sleep but this year they just stayed in the corn fields, in a nice cool hole.
