They are all over the Jocassee Gorges state gamelands. I've seen bears a few times while hiking in that area.

There are two populations of black bears in SC. One in the Upstate, the other in Horry County. In the Upstate this year, I know they have been spotted around Greer and some Eastside Greenville neighborhoods near the Enoree River and the creeks that feed into it.

There was an article a few days ago from WIS in Columbia where one was spotted in Newberry.

Isn't this the time of year (May-June) when the mama bears push the young male ones out away from the family nest so they are on the move and looking for food.

Two bears were recently seen in or near the Pelham falls neighborhood in Greenville near the Enoree river.
