Bear Hunting

5 posts in this topic

I'd like to try next year and have been surfing the web and the DNR list of guides to see what my options are. Anyone have any suggestions or successful experiences with guides they'd like to share? BTW, successful doesn't necessarily mean taking a monster bear but having a good time and seeing some bears.

Thanks for everyone's help. I really appreciate all the responses. grin.gif But seriously, is it one of those deals where no one can offer advice unless its a sponser of the site?

I have hunted bear for a few years and two out of three years got my bear.I only used a guide one time.The other times I did my own baiting and it was just as much a thrill to check the baits as it was to harvest one.

As far as the guides go,I would get the list of guides from the DNR and call and ask for references.There are many good ones out there and they will give you names of customers you can call.

If you have the time and the extra money for the gas,it is alot of fun and exciting to do your own baiting.

I would give it a few more days.In the meantime,check the DNR info and you should get all the info you need.I would tell you who IO used but you would not be happy with me if I sent you there and I believe he is out of busisness.

Thanks Harvey Lee. I mainly wouldn't have the time or know-how (where to hunt on public ground) etc. Plus I'm thinking the repeated trips up north would eat a lot of gas.

Iceman, I will e-mail you soon.

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds

          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.
