Any body still bear hunting?

Recommended Posts

Gofishleech

We are but it has been tough. A sow and 3 cubs took over the bait and are coming in at night after being spooked away. We were having random bears but since she came no other bears have came in so we are trying a "no bait" for a few days to try and get her to move on. Has anyone had this senario?

I am still hunting but it has become tough on state land with all the grouse hunters out. I have two different boars coming in, one looks to only be 150-175, and the other comes in just after legal shooting and i think he is 250+. I pics and will post if anybody want to see and tell me what they think.

We've got 2 active sites, but all of them are getting hit in the middle of the night, ugh! We don't know how to prevent this but it sure is frustrating. One site is getting hit from multiple boars, cubs, and sow with cubs. The other is getting hit by a nice sized boar. Any one have any suggestions on getting them away from being nocturnal besides pulling the bait at night? I live 1/2 hour from my bear hunting land and two trips a day just isn't an option.

Friend of mine shot a 200# bear yesterday in the no quota area. But he still has a 500# in the area.

I just hope I can talk my wife into letting me skip work Saturday 4 times in a row so I can head up there in 2 weeks.

Try doing a bacon or honey burn to bring them in. Putting out different scent may make them curious and bring them in earlier.

I tagged out this year, but in years past I've had some good luck late in the year. It seems like after the first two weeks most of the other guys hang it up. If you can get in an area that isn't being trampled by other hunters it can pay off right to the end.

Well my dad finally decided to pull the trigger last friday. We had 2 baits out for him and they were pounded hard but the only bears he was seeing were small. The big guys must have been nocturnal.

Anyway we put a new bait out about 2 mile from the other baits and it was hit within 2 days. So he hunted that bait with no luck the first night. We came back at around noon the next day and the bait was hit already, (oh great they're nocturnal). He sat on the bait that night anyway and about 10 min before dark a nice boar came in and started licking the bacon grease and thats when I heard the Ol' 870 echo through the swamp. It feild dressed at 150lbs. Not a bad present to get on his birthday!

where is the farthest south everyone hunts. I have bear at my deer spot by Almelund. What about Wyoming any bear that far south? A guy at work claims his brother is successfull every year by forest lake? Do you think that is true?

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
