noctural bears

24 posts in this topic

I started baiting on the 19th and I have a camera out....I was getting plenty of daytime and nigthime pics of maybe 4-6 different bear. Now for some odd reason the past three days i'm getting all night pics. I haven't done anything out of the ordinary while baiting to have any reasoning for it.

Any advice on what I could do to change this??

Try to get a hold of a bait the bears arent used to, for example most people dont use beaver meat. New scents in the area may bring them in sooner.

I've never done it but some guys go in to bait an leave, then come back in hour or so an remove the bait in hopes of getting the bear to come in earlier or he'll miss supper. My first bear was a night feeder, I had baited himm all Sept. an on my last try Sept. 30th I tried some I had'nt before, I did a bacon burn. He just could'nt take it an came in about half hour before sundown, stuck his nose in the bacon pot an I sent an arrow through him. Boar

If you have time bait in the morning and take it out in the evening. That way they have to come during daylight hours. It worked for a buddy last year. Also try different bait like the previous poster said.

I recently bought a bear caller....the video says the if you do the sow n heat call you could get the night bear to come in at shooting hours. Anyone ever try calling before?

I've done some fawn distress calling before while on stand. Nothing came charging in, but I have seen bears after calling. I can't say for sure if I called them in, or they would have come in anyhow.

I hunted last night with near perfect conditions, only thing was a very bright sky. Nothing showed. This morninig I had to be in the area so I decided to save time an bait, it was eleven oclock. My site was tore up,Good an bad, now I just have to get him to come in during daylight. I'm thinking I should really cut back on the bait to 1/4 of what I've been using to much an they tend to come in when ever. Pluse I have the means to bait in the morning before work then bust go out in the evening an either hunt an take the bait out with me, leaving just a little hand full, or not hunt but still leave a little teaser. What do you guys think? This is pretty much the only way I can think of to turn him to daytime. Biff, how long did your buddy have to work at it this way to get his bear? Pluse the warm weather is really working against us this year, This weekend is really supposed to cool down into the lower 60's wich should help. Maybe not pressuring till it coools down should help to. Boar

He thought around 4 days to get him coming in during the day. What a warm weekend. I had baseball all weekend and could not get out. I pulled 2 of my baits and I checked the other one on private land today and nothing. I talked to the homeowner and he said he has been checking it too mad.gif He also told me he has been shooting trap back there to get ready for the upcoming bird season mad.gifmad.gif No wonder there isn't nothing touching my bait. New baits out on Tuesday. Nothing like starting over from scratch a couple days into the season.

Lots of season left,If I was to start over I would just use the scent ball with teaser bait till it cools down cause it is to blasted hot, nothing likes to move in this heat, so save your bait, move away from the trap shooter, an wait till it cools down. the tough thing is bow season starts soon an there will be more traffic in the woods an bird hunters too. danged if ya do an danged if ya dont.

Just a quick question. How do you guys do "a bacon burn"? I would like to try this for something new or just that extra kick.

I posted this some wheres but cant remember where. So Take a large coffee metel can an poke a bunch of holes around the around bottom of the can, Just below the top poke three two four sets of holes directly across from each other. In these hole you wil place wire hanger cliped to size, the wire hanger will make a grid to set a smaller metal can on like a soup can but I like a smaller metal coffee can better. Inside the big can you will place acouple small tea candles the one you put in pumkins two usually dose it. Dont poke the hole around the bottom to big or wind will blow out the candles, just big enough to get oxygen to the flame. One guy brought up a safty tip an thats to clear the ground around the burner two about the a three foot radius cause a grease fire in the woods is not a good thing. Dont use a sterno the flame is too intense an burns the bacon you just want to warm it up, A bear sticks his nose in near the can an gets popped by grease before you get a shots an he's gone. It's like frying bacon naked. So you need to experiment first to get a good burn. I like using other things like two cups water an a big packet of cherry jello mix or a anis syrup. Again the key is to just warm bacon if it's sizzling an popping that could deter a bear even before he comes in, so one candle might work. bring a small hand garden claw with you to effectivly clear a big area if you use bacon. Good luck, boar

I tried to burn honey this past weekend. My heat source was a little too close. The entire area where I hunt was all smoke.

Then the flames came - about 6 inches high. great for cover scent, bad for bears.

My bait got hit that night though..

I seen a bear today. To bad it was on the way to work and not in the stand. A cub ran across the road near the town of Dalbo. One of my baits may have gotten hit. The big log laying on top was moved to the back and the 2 smallest logs were moved and some donuts were gone along with some laying next to the bait. Coons maybe? I will take pics tomorrow. It doesn't seem like hunting season with it being 90 degrees.

I was in after work to bait and am still getting hits, I should should say a hit. I'm sure i'm down to one bear , the dominate boar in the area. I still havent did the pulling of the bait trick yet, i'm donna try something else first. I really thought of my bait site at work today, an i really am not pleased with my set up, I am 30 yards of he site an down wind of any north breeze, I moved my two man ladder stand from it's place of 15 yards for bow to 30 yrds this season for muzzleloader. I did'nt have a extendable pole saw to trim the tops of bushes an trees so I removed what I had to for shooting which seems to be to much cause when I look an thinks about it more an more, the bear has a very clear view to my ladder stand an it really sticks out like a sore thumb, an so would I, even 30 yrds out in the trees, I'm sure he just dosent like the looks of that thing sitting there. So i grabed a hang on stand an whent 30 yards back towords the old tree, quickly hung it about 7 feet up back in the shadows where I'm totaly lost in the under brush an over hanging branches. The question is should I take down the the ladder stand? Boar

I would say no. Keep everything original as possible. If you take down the stand the bear will know something is missing and may get spooked.

I agree. I had a bear come in from behind me once but he stopped. I thought he saw my stand and me in it so I left that one and set up another one across from it. The next night I saw the bear come in and he looked up at the stand and saw it was empty. That was the last thing he saw. smile.gif

Well boar I am glad to see that you are still getting hits. I went out after work yesterday and found my bait smoked again. I could have hunted opener but do to the temp i decided to wait until this weekend since the weather will cool off. i did get some trail cam pics so if he is as big as i think he is i will post them later today or tomorrow.

Moon didnt help.

With all the wind in the last week theres food down everywhere and with the clowns running around on the wheelers this is my last weekend I will hunt .. Weekdays after this..

I have been watching a sow for a month now.. She brings in her 2 cubs and "jumps" everytime she hears any sounds human related in the distance..

Unlike some I wont shoot her for the simple fact sooner or later she will have the right company following her in besides she is providing future hunting...

.. With the cooler temps coming things will improve/././.

I agree...

Bright moon, strong winds and warm temps were not a good opening weekend recipe! Cooler temps this weekend will get them moving. A guy in the camp where I'm hunting shot a 450-500 #er last night. 2 other 200#ers passed up last night... the cold front went through there last night. Also we've had lot's of sows with cubs that have been passed on this week...

Good Luck!

Ken

Whent to bait today an still getting hit, two spore in the site area, about the size of a salad plate or smaller, seems small in relation to the claw marks I'm getting, so maybe another bear has moved in or two of last years cubs. I really hope its not cubs with mom cause the only place to put my alternate stand to hunt this weekend in with in a dead fall an only two feet of the ground, it will be interesting. thinking on doing an anise burn tomorrow evening, maybe hickory marinaded bacon. Suppose to rain, wish i coulda been out tonight but the wife had to play bingo, oh well, sacrifice sacrifice what do ya do. Boar

        The two pairs shown are the classic adidas originals yeezy boost 350 shoes sale and the adidas Superstar 80s. Both will come with a White upper along with nubuck material with a snakeskin texture overlay. The Superstar will use leather across the heel tab and Three Stripes down the side which is dipped in Black. The Stan Smith will have perforated Three Stripes branding along with Green on the heel and tongue. Look closer at this adidas nmd r1 uk womens they feature a White Primeknit across the uppers while Glitch Camouflage is used on the base. In addition you will notice that there is multiple shades of Grey on the Three Stripes branding along with Japanese writing. Other details include more Grey on the heel and EVA pod overlays while White covers the Boost midsole and outsole. adidas yeezy 350 v2 uk sale While we have seen sneakers from all the brands in the NBA 2K series along with customizing your own pair, this will be the first time the Yeezy Boost will be available in the game. As of now, it isn’t known which pair will be available, but more than likely it will be either the 350 or 750 Boost. The adidas stan smith primeknit sale has been one of adidas Originals biggest sellers through the years and in our opinion, only ranks second from the retro line. Over the past months, we have seen the model evolve while using different material mashups but now we have something completely new. Here we introduce to you the?adidas Stan Smith ’24K Gold’.

        adidas originals campus 80s uk and size will debut two pairs of the adidas Superstar 80s while using a premium theme. The duo will feature tumbled leather along with tonal nubuck across the Three Stripes and heel. In addition, the trefoil logo seen on the leather tongue is laser engraved. One pair features White and Light Grey while the second comes in Black and White. The two are finished off with the traditional shell toe and White through the midsole. adidas samba adv uk sale My friend ended his story of Pablo with an event that took place at his high school and I think it really defines talent. Apparently Pablo had maneuvered around the defense brilliantly and was coming straight on to the goalie, and instead of trying to shoot the ball around the goalie - which would have been an easy shot - he just launched a rocket straight at him. The ball went off of the goalie's leg and into the net. That is how Red Pablo with his red Adidas sambas is remembered most. adidas zx flux primeknit black white So far two different colors have been introduced for the weather change, which comes in ‘Collegiate Navy’ and ‘Running White’. Both pairs are constructed with a mesh upper which allows for additional air flow while the midfoot strap is elastic to help the lockdown without the use of laces. The final touch is the addition to suede across the heel. Looking closer at this adidas nmd xr1 primeknit uk they feature a Utility Grey and Shock Pink color combination. Across the uppers is the use of Grey Primeknit while camouflage detailing runs throughout. White is used on the Boost midsole while the EVA pod overlays are done in Shock Pink and Grey. Completing the look is Black on the outsole.At the time of writing, a release date for the adidas NMD R1 Primeknit Utility Grey Camo isn’t available however they are expected to launch during Summer 2017. Once released, retail price will be $170. Once we have more information, we will make sure to update you. Below you can check out additional images which will give you a better look. This adidas nmd primeknit black white comes dressed in a Legion Ink, Trace Blue and Gum Light Brown color combination. Blue covers the stretch mesh uppers while also applied to the Three Stripes branding, eyelets and back heel. Following we have White which is used for the Boost midsole. Completing the look is Gum that is applied to one of the EVA pod overlays and across the outsole.

        adidas originals extaball up trainers   is getting ready to launch a brand new model in 2016, but before they do that they will unveil the shoes on December 9th, 2015 which is Wednesday. Known as the ‘NMD’, this new pair will combine elements of some of their classic models like the 1984 Micro Pacer, 1986 Boston Super and the 1985 Rising Star. adidas gazelle og sale uk We are currently in the midst of a Gazelle renaissance. While more technical models in theadidas?arsenal might be hogging the limelight at present – namely the?Ultra Boost?and?NMD?– the time-tested Gazelle is holding its own and doing what the classic Three Stripe low-top does best, delivering lush materials and clean colourways. Keeping to this MO, the?Gazelle ‘Ostrich Pack’ delivers two tonal make-ups made of premium leather and nubuck. So why is this called the ‘Ostrich’ pack I’m sure you’re wondering? If you take a sneaky look at the medial-side branding, you’ll notice that it is made of exotic ostrich leather, with the bumpy hide adding a subtle textural pop. Following on from the mens adidas forum hi og casual shoes Wars Rebel Squadron Suprerstars we saw recently come this AT-AT walker inspired Forum Lo. Kind of like a mini version of the?AT-AT Pilot El Dorado?we saw last year, these feature a polar Hoth camo on the uppers and a ‘Hoth Blizzard Force’ AT-AT on the heel that harks back to the?Bill McMullen?AD-AT Shelltoe of a few years back. Available from?Sole Movement, thanks to?Nice Kicks?for the news. adidas adi ease premiere skate shoes This release of the Three Stripes’ UltraBOOST 3.0 sees the sneaker dressed down in a neutral ‘Trace Khaki’ colourway. The?Primeknit?upper wears the tan colour, with the typical mottled pattern flecked throughout the knitted build. The lacing system and heel counter feature a tonal variation of the same colour, giving the UltraBOOST a clean finish. Other than an understated aesthetic, these kicks are equipped with the full-length?BOOST?technology sole for a cushioned ride. adidas eqt running support 93 sale It looks like 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the EQT over at adidas. The recent?‘Turbo Red’ set?gave us plenty to look forward to and now, for those who aren’t inclined towards the many black options presented so far, they’re slipping?in a ‘Cargo Green’?EQT Support ADV?to bulk out the surplus. The shoe still features a few spots of ‘Turbo Red’, which sit comfortably alongside the olive green upper, while the black supports and white midsole tie the whole shoe together with precision.

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?
    • ANYFISH2
      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck
    • srj
      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
    • curt quesnell
      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind
