Wolves and Bears

Recommended Posts

KOTTKE

Had my daughter out for her first ever hunt this weekend. About 7pm had one wolf come in to the bait pile. What a thrill for her but wondered what the bears would think of this. 45 minutes later a nice bear comes in and keeps moving quickly around the bait pile. Hoping the bear would stand still I told her to wait for the shot, needless to say it ran off never to be seen again. Sun morning had 4 wolves right under us, no bears at all on Sunday, nothing on Monday either. Wondering if anyone else has had experience with this, do the bears tolerate the wolves?? or do they clear out. This bear was in the 225# range, I would not think the wolves would bother it to much. Hoping to get back up next week if the baits start getting active again.

Articles on bear I've read seem to indicate a bear has no other "enemy" in the woods, other than hunters. Your experience makes me wonder if wolves follow bear for food sources, like meat, and I sure don't hear of too many bear being killed in their dens.

It sure is a good question and my experience of having wolves around me at dark, loading a bear in to my truck a few hundred yards from the kill site comes to mind.

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!
