BALDWIN - Jim Warren is among the area's most active outdoorsmen and the Baldwin area resident is ready for a busy spring.

"It's real quiet," he said. "We haven't put the boats in yet. We're planning on a walleye trip we go on, and a perch trip. We'll get a lot of fish we hope. We go in the Detroit River."

It looks like bear season has started.

"The bears are out," Warren said. "We've been seeing some awfully big bears at people's property in Sweetwater Township. I keep my trail cam out there to watch their pole barn and houses. I check it out.

" I've been seeing a monster. It looks like he's a big male. He looks like he's about 500 pounds."

Warren has been see plenty of turkeys.

"You see an awful lot of young last year's turkeys," he said. "We're seeing them in flocks of maybe 15 to 25. There's two or three different flocks we see. They're still digging in the hay and in food plots that we've got. We caught a bobcat at one of the trail camera. He looks straight at the trail camera. I think he knows what that is.

"We'll be going bluegill fishing pretty soon. It's still too cold. When it warms up we want to do some bluegill fishing."
