Does anyone know about a huge bear taken in the Orr, MN area this past fall? I pulled into a gas station about 25 miles north of Orr on highway 53 on Memorial weekend and they were trying to weigh it on the scale there. Unfortunately the scale only went to 500 lbs so they were not able to determine the weight while I was there. When I went back about a month or so later the guys in the store thought they heard it ended up being over 700 pounds. I have to say it was by far the largest bear I have ever laid eyes on.

Anyone know more about this as I've been curious to hear?

Did anyone get there skulls scored? I got my skull back from the taxidermist about 3 weeks ago it was right at 12" long and 7 1/4" accross. So I think it is about a 19 1/4" bear. Not bad for a first timer wink

It is never hurts to have luck on your side.

I also just got my hide back from the taxidermist. I did not go the full rug but I still have that option for a year or so. It still smells like the tanning solutions use to tan the hide. Deffinitly got the right hide back from the taxidermist- broadhead cuts were in the right places grin

Now to figure out what I want to do with it???????

Good Luck this fall everyone

Later

Thanks Boar.

P and Y is 18"

B and C is 20"

I used a nocturnal lighted nock and it helped make the recovery fast. thus not eligible for P and y. I will take the skull in for scoring if Average Joe's Archery has the scoring weekend again this winter. They kind of took this over after Sportsmans Warehouse left town. They have a nice shop in Coon Rapids.

I love the bear pics and bait site updates that you provide.

Later

Near Hayward but the guy that owns the property is only letting us hunt it because I transered my tag to my grandson. Otherwise he only lets close relatives hunt it.

And if you want to hunt WI be prepared to wait 8 years for a tag. I have no idea why the DNR wants so many bears around but the population is getting out of hand. My wife hit one with the car this summer and I had to come to a stop one morning waiting for one to get done dining on someone's garbage. That and our fawn population is way down.

Screw the lighted nock rule, u did not have an unfair advantage before the shot. Lighted nocks aid in recoverery not the shot. You made [email protected] in my book. Nice job, I coulda made it to with a 19 3/16 but was thus inelegiable for the same reason.

Wow snooze you have bear/vehicle problems like we have deer/vehicle problems, yea ihear about the lottery over there dosent make sense to me, I guy can dream i guesse, maybe it will change some day. Again good luck to ur grandson. Good luck boys!

Have not seen many pics from the start of the season, so here goes. Saturday evening about 6:45 I heard an animal running, assuming it's a deer I look over my should and see the bear running to the bait. The bear hit the pile and started tossing the logs and had dinner. I hesitated for about 10 minutes not sure if I should take a shot. A lot of variables in play, I decided it was game over. With the shot, the bear bolted, fell in the dry creek bed, then scampered up the bank and tried to climb a tree. Not being in the best condition for a climb, the bear slid down and it was over about 10 yards from my stand. Great day, great hunt, great bear. Good luck to those still afield. full-24609-23980-photo(5).jpg

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.

      On the south end...  A fantastic week of fall walleye fishing.  Walleyes in good numbers across the south shore of Lake of the Woods.  Most popular depths are 14 - 24'.  Anchoring up with a jig with frozen shiner is the ticket.  Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well.  Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught.  Jumbo perch and pike in the mix.  Walleyes also being caught around Knight and Bridges islands and structure off of Long Point and Rocky Point. On the Rainy River...   Strong reports this past week and weekend of good numbers of walleyes along with some big walleyes taken.  Fish in spots with current breaks from mouth of river to Birchdale.  There is still a strong current and fish are congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore, behind points or holes in river.  7-16' a good start depending upon the spot.  Very good reports this week.  Have jigs up to 1.5 oz if in the main channel, lighter jigs in slack water.  Many personal best walleyes and sturgeon this week. Up at the NW Angle...  Walleyes in traditional fall spots.  Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish.  Jigging continues to be the go to method.  Big black crappie and jumbo perch bite happening also.  Traditional fall muskie bite continues strong, lots of fish boated.

      Anyone ever find one that works? My truck topper light wiring got corroded from the salt spray coming in during the winter.

      Fished zero hours this weekend, but did get the dock raised and took care of a bunch of other projects. Snow shovels are out for my next trip! I'm hoping to find open water in November for a final trip, but know that it's not likely!
