Bear Hunting

11 posts in this topic

I no this is the fishing site but thought you all could help. Thinking about applying for a bear license. But worried about finding somebody to put bait out when not around any suggestions on somebody that could help or would trade baiting bear for another hunting type(Pheasants or Geese)

What you may want to do is check with the DNR for all the licensed Bear guides in the state. Then you will know who is licensed and you may have a better idea which ones are doing everything correct. They do have a list to check on all guides within the state. Most of the good guides will supply you with a list of references to call and see how thier hunt went.

This may take a little work but might give you the hunt you are looking for.

Hey Bass check out Hoyt, he helped a long time guide last fall and he has a couple bears under his own safety harness. He also has the fastest bear I have ever heard of too. He seen the bear before his bow was even up to his hand yet. I filmed his very first bear too. I helped him with his clients opening evening of bear season last fall. He has some great luck, hopefully someday a little of his luck will rub off on us.

You may recieve more information if you place your post in the the Deer, bear, Moose forum. Usually many questions in regards to bear hunting in that forum. You should find more help there also.

Its fine that you posted it here, its just that many more viewers are in the other forum as its more specialized to Bear.

If you already have your hunting area picked out and you are just looking for someone to help you out in baiting once in a while, let me know and maybe we can work something out.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
