the remainder of the year; the states of Season-3 correspond to the main hibernation exclusive of late denning classes, active-season hypophagia (the period of little feeding activity) and hyperphagia (the period of heightened feeding activity); and the states of Season-4 correspond to the core period of hibernation, the period of foraging on ungulate carcasses (including hibernation of females with cubs of the year), the hiatus between carcass and pine seed availability, and the period of foraging on pine seeds (Table 2; see Judd et al.
