Leaving a bear stand

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have any tricks or tips on leaving their bear stand after an unsucessful evening hunt?

I'm not worried about being eaten, I just want to do everything I can to minimize spooking the bears.

I brush hog a strip to and from my stand where allowable. Being able to get in and out quietly is key. Knee high rubber boots are also nice for leaving a minmum of scent behind.

When its time to go I just quietly climb down an leave. Hving a good clear path like hub mention is best.

Sometimes I think walking out after an unsuccessful hunt can get your heart pounding just as much as actually shooting a bear. You hear every movement in the brush usually on the way out. I know last year the first night I had 2 cubs come walking down my trail that I come and go on and could here momma out in the wood and of course when they left they went out the same trail I needed to leave on. Made for a fun exit that night with the muzzleloader.

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
