On Friday 4/23/10- me and 3 of my buds hiked from Woody Gap to Woods Hole and heard from a Ridge Runner about a bear getting into packs from Woods hole to ther Blood Mtn shelter. We set up camp at Woods Hole and noticed the remnants of a pack on the far left of the bear cable. We all hung our stuff but did not use the far left cable ( had 7 others in camp). At 10:00 pm we heard a clanging and the bear was on the tree trying to get to the packs/bags. We got out of our tents and shown out lights on him and even tough it was dark we were able to get a good look on ocassion- he was huge . I would estimate 400 pounds. He was big and fat. He was not afraid of us but we kept our lights on him, yelled and threw rocks at him ( from a distance). He walked right behind one tent and left. He came back at 11:00 pm and went up the tree trying the bear cabel one more time. We got out and chased him off again. He did not return. We went on to Neals gap crossing Blood and talked to others who had seen the bear in broad daylight sitting on the side of the trail.
