My daughter was guiding a film crew for a cable TV hunting show. The bear was shot before dark. The film crew did not want to go along tracking so they packed it in for the night. My daughter, her husband, my son and I tracked the bear starting around 11:00 P.M. after tracking bears for several other clients. The tracking ended in an alder swamp where the swamp grass and brush was leveled in an area about 10 yards around. Blood everywhere. The photo was taken the next day at camp.

We had a bait a few years back that was getting hit every day about an hour before dark...We set-up to hunt the bear and about half an hour before dark a pack of wolves lit-up the evening air with thier "kill" song....they were close, we guessed within a quarter mile, And we never got hit that year at that site again! THE END! frown

was it wolves or was it yotes, I know that yotes will go for the guts before they go for the meat. But looking at that picture it looks like there is still enough of the bear left for a head mount, lol.

That is crazy though.

Sure hope he was dead before they got to him. That'd be a tough way to go.

Was the client, or film crew dissappointed?

Actually, I believe the entrails are the first thing sought after. The hind quarters or any other meat for that matter is last.

Bob, I believe you are right. The reason they go for the endtrails is because it has the thinnest skin and can get to the inside quicker.

Yep the guts/organs have more nutritional value.

I read an interesting story once about a guy stranded at sea for something like 3 months, lucky for him he was able to catch plenty of fish to keep himself fed. Anyway after a while he was tired of eating the meat and found himself wanted to eat guts, eyeballs, brains and all the weird stuff. His body wasn't getting what it needed from the fillets alone and it was sending him a message to eat the "good stuff".

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year.

      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.

      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
