Bear up in a tree

4 posts in this topic

Yesterday while picking up bait over at Hansen bait in White Bear Lake. There was a black bear stuck up in a tree.

He was pretty high up I would have to guess about 100feet up. This was also in a residential area too.

Anyone else seen this too or heard about it?

It was on the channel 4 news last night. They had a reporter out there documenting the bear. It was up there all day. Durring the newscast the bear came down then went up a smaller tree. If they would have left the thing alone it probably would have left. It was nice seeing them covering a bear in a tree other than a murder or a robbery!

The night before the story hit the news, the guy I work with said that same bear was in the tree right next to his house. He came into work telling us about it. It was outside his bedroom window. Stayed in the tree all night and left about 8 in the morning. The next day it made the news.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
