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.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
