Just an observation

6 posts in this topic

While vacationing at Vermilion last week, my wife and I went to the Vince Schute Wildlife Sanctuary near Orr one of the days to look at bears. First time I've ever seen one close up. Man do those things have bellies on them....some nearly dragging on the ground. Kinda reminds me of myself! blush.gifgrin.gif

A few of them did look pretty big, although I really don't know what "huge" is since I've never seem them close up before and I've never hunted them before. I don't have a clue on what the bigger ones weighed, but I would shoot a guess out there at maybe 350 or 400 pounds????

What does bear taste like anyway? Is it any good, or do ya pretty much hunt them for the hide and population management? (I have no clue)

Not a big fan of bear meat, but if it slow cooked and prepared like pulled pork it isn't bad. I think it is really rich and sweet.

The best thing about bears are when you gut them, they dont stink, dont ask me why they just dont.

I will take a younger bear over venison anyday and I love venison.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
