Mine dressed at 195 but thought I had a bigger one one cam. If you take time in taking after kill photos it would do wonders how big it looks. I snapped my buddies first it weighted 140 dressed and looks bigger. full-29992-1014-img_2189.jpg

Well I finally drew my bear tag after 8 years of applying!!

I have four sites close to home and all of them were active. I had two nice boars over 350 lbs coming in after dark, as well as a HUGE sow (400+) with cubs that I passed on several times (can't shoot a sow with cubs/yearlings in Wisconsin). Along with several other sets of sows/cubs and smaller boars.

I've been out hunting 3-4 days a week waiting for one of the big boars to make a mistake and show there face during shooting hours.

But I found out last Friday that we are headed out of town for work in another week. So I decided to take the next decent bear to come in.

He came in Friday evening with about 20 minutes of shooting light left. He hit the bait an layed down facing me for about ten minutes before finally moving and laying down broadside.

While he was mowing down some apple licorice a sent a Muzzy screaming his way and through both lungs! smile He went about 50 yards and died within a minute.

I had two buddies come out and help me track and drag. I think Ray Charles could have followed the blood trail!! I'm very gratefull that he expired in such a short time. I've heard/read horror stories of bow shot bears.

Anyways here his is, dressed out at 230 pounds. He is my first bear, and I likely won't draw another tag for 6-8 years, so I'm getting a 1/2 lifesize mount done.

Great first bear. Im going to start applying over there in WI seems like 8 year wait is what it takes. That wait is gotta be worth it, by the looks of your pic you agree.

Hey gemNeyeJoe. Nice pic. It looks exactly like my bear hunting gun of choice. I also have a Ithaca with a shotgun scope. Have shot many deer and a few bears with it. Love it.

Boar, I hear you some of the sign that I a seeing is outstanding. It never fails on one bait that we call the beaver dam, every time we come across the stream along side it in the mudd is a bear track. I hope that its the big one that we have been seeing in the area and a client messed up on because if it is, its close to 400lbs.

Yesterday we got out 25 baits and today we are going to put out ten more then start checking the baits we have set. With any luck we will have enought baits that we wont have to put out an test baits in new areas, but I always love searching for a new spot to bait and the anticipation to see if it was a good move or not.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.

      Second flock this morning. They seem to find safe feeding grounds when the guns start popping.

      Chance of lightning....  haha.  When will it stop?!  In about an hour.  Let’s load up.

      Thanks guys! I have a reply from the recommended guide saying he is too busy in fall (apparently he is a teacher and coach etc...)   I think I will stay couple of days in Monticello and fish the Mississippi River. Any recommendations on spots and accommodations? Also do I need to hire a car?
    • Wanderer
      Just settling in for a 4 hour nap before launching the boat on LOW - provided we’re not in the middle of a T-storm.  South winds so that helps.  Rain doesn’t bother me but the chance of lightning does.   Good luck tomorrow.
