“To the best of our knowledge, the bear family remains alive and well and has not been trapped. Since they have not returned to the Swim Club area, DNR is picking up their two traps from the property today.” - Jill Philmon, General Manager Big Canoe, from July 18 email blast to BC
“Please Note: As you may know, the bears in Bent Tree are busy migrating around the property. Bent Tree Public Safety asks that you do not leave trash, pet food, bird seed or any other edible material outside, in your vehicle, garage, porch or other accessible areas. This would include the common trash pick up areas such as the mail center, golf course and pavilion. Lastly, remember to keep all exterior doors locked.” – Tom Fowler, General Manager Bent Tree, from July 20 email blast to BT
The subject of trapping/euthanizing “nuisance” black bears has been in the news this week. Click here for a post from five years ago that addresses this same subject. From that post you can link to even earlier posts on the subject. It is a sad situation that won’t get better unless people quit feeding the wildlife (whether intentionally or unintentionally). The photo below is from 2011 and shows a bear trap in Bent Tree, set by the DNR to capture a nuisance bear.

I was all set to post about a golf course home that recently came on the market, when I got sidetracked by a different new listing. I was intrigued by the photos of the home at 172 Little Hendricks Mountain Road. Then I read the description under “property details”. The description was intriguing, too. The last line of the description reads “Many delightful rooms reminiscent of the Professors home in Lion, Witch, & the Wardrobe.”
Click here to link to the listing information. The asking price for the 5 bed, 4 bath home is $298,700. If you’re interested in a golf course home, click here to list to the listing information for the home I originally had in mind. The asking price for 6 Tamarack Drive is $400,000.

The property backs up to a large area of Bent Tree’s green space, which in turn backs up to a green space buffer in Big Canoe. Click here to link to the listing information.

Click here to link to the listing information for 791 Crippled Oak Trail in Bent Tree. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath golf course home hit the market with an asking price of $165,000 and includes a detached 3 car garage. One of the unique features of this property (a deck overlooking the 15th tee), isn’t mentioned in the listing details, but still exists, as far as I know (see picture below). The photo above is from last April.
