Deer and Bear

4 posts in this topic

I have some hunting land north of Blackduck that I deer hunt. Over the last few years I have seen many nice pics of beers on my trail cams. I have never beer hunted but I would like to start. I was wondering if baiting for beers and drawing them on to the property more would effect the deer hunting at all?

Here's a answer for you ...... it depends.

The thing I would be most concerned about is all the extra commotion and activity in the woods from you runnning your bear baits.

Depending on how much land you have and what the terrain is like, can you do your bear hunting away from where you deer hunt?

Bear season ends long before the deer firearm season, so I wouldn't be too concerned about it affecting gun season. But if you bowhunt, especially in the early season, then I'd be concerned about it.

If you only firearm hunt for deer it will not be a problem. Most people give up on bear after the first couple weekends. If you don't shoot a bear by the small game/archery deer opener it gets tough because the woods get hit pretty hard with foot traffic and the bears become nocturnal.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
