Ended up being a pretty good bear season!

Recommended Posts

whitewolf6647

With 3 people we had 5 baits going since day 1 of baiting and by our count, which was pretty conservative, we had 20 different adult bears coming to 5 piles 26 total if you count cubs. One pile we had 8 different bears on camera.

Opening night I got this 370 lb. boar at 7:50 pm. with my 12 gauge in the no Quota zone on public land!

Nice job!

I like it better then Venny. Not at all like people had told us. Greasy, stringy. Our group had taken about 10 bears over the years and it all eat very well! wink

The bear I shot last year was very good, sweeter than venison. Nice job, 3-5 sounds awfully good to me.

Just got back from Middle River on a bear trip. There were four of us. No one saw a bear or had one hit any of our bear sites. We hunted state ground. I think a lot of the bears were in corn fields on private ground. I can honestly saw that I have never met such nice people as I (we) did in Middle River. They tried to help us out as much as they could. Its just too bad that we didn't go to the local watering hole earlier, as we might have been able to get on some good private ground next to the corn. Still a fun trip though. Maybe next year!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
