That’s interesting.  I had not seen one either since we got our cabin in 2013, then caught this one on my webcam a few weeks ago.

Where on South Pine Island?

 

We live on South Pine Island East of Canfield Bay, and Bears roll through our property occasionally.  We have outdoor speakers hooked up to SiriusXM that we usually leave on to announce our presence.

I know there were two sightings recently on Hinsdale and also on the island next to ours (Jupiter Island) in Smarts/Frazer area

It was West of Canfield. The East end of Comet was behind me.

After getting a drink he went to lay down. Wasn't the least bit concerned with me. Eventually he put his head down and and obviously wanted to sleep so I moved on and let him get his rest.

You took this with a cell phone?  What one do you have? Great shot.

I also saw one this summer in the narrows between Porcupine Island and the peninsula (between Partridge River and Wakemup/Norwegian). Hadn't seen one in years. I also saw that one of the guides posted a picture of a bull moose swimming along the NE side of Taylor's Island this summer as well.

Here’s my entry from Wake Em Up Narrows a couple weeks ago.  Heard from the local resort owner this bear has been hanging around the area and actually nudged a guest who was taking a mid-day snooze on the deck of one of their cabins.  Took him a few seconds to realize he wasn’t looking at a dog.

Here's a couple more, pretty sure it's the same one. First photo is right behind my garage. Neighbor also chased a cub up a tree behind our place. It's hitting an apple tree in there yard. I'm going to put a camera by the apple tree today.

Samsung Note 10+.  It does have a great camera.  Had to use the digital zoom on that shot.  Wish I had my wildlife camera with me.

Spotted this small cub up in pine near the water in Wolf Bay.  He was at least up 40ft high maybe higher.  There is an eagles nest about 5ft higher(no babies this year).  Eagles still come an sit up there quite often.

Had a sow and two cubs on our property on Richie Bay in late June.  Over the years I have learned there are bears all over this area but you rarely see them unless you are baiting them.  Generally harmless unless you get between sow and cubs.

We saw a bear on south side of Pine Island from our neighboring island as pointed out by a passing fisherman three nights ago. First time in quite some time. The next night while fishing 300 years away, I hear the neying of a panicking fawn, crashing of trees branches. I see the fawn pushed to the lake shore, the fawn is caught by the bear. The neying slowly fades. The bear is on shore for 20 seconds, then disappears into the woods.

 

Nature....

 

And, I thought they ate blueberries.

Bears are eaters of opportunity....like myself. Usually if they are being carnivores, it's getting the young ones.

      that's how the contractor referred to as. They put a easement on my property taxes. My mortgage went up 125 a month for ten years. This was 3 years ago maybe the funds are gone.
    • Mike89
      they didn't have to here in Todd cty.   I know some folks who got it.....   
    • delcecchi
      A grant (free money) or some kind of loan?   You have to pay it back?

      Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel.   Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As always, kids had fun catching sunnies from the dock at hungry jack lodge. By the way, we ate at their restaurant for the first time…AMAZING! Also fell in love with castle danger cream ale. Had fun on greenwood lake watching bass jump out of the water and catching dragonflies. There must have been a hatch going on, because they were everywhere! And every bass had fat little belly’s. The rainbow trout on kimball lake has fat belly’s too. They were gorging on mosquito larvae. Casting from shore on superior was actually productive…on the way up I caught a long nose sucker on a daredevil spoon. In front of our motel, I finally caught my first lake trout from superior! Anyway, overall it was still a fun trip. Did some hiking, mini golf, alpine slide. Didn’t see any moose, but we did see a bear and a wolf.    As always, the people at Hungry Jack Lodge were great! I think we’re going to start staying there from now on.

      I’m going to second bobbers on shallow rocks. Stick baits over shallow rocks, too. It’s not my favorite kind of fishing. I’d rather be slow trolling Lindy rigs on reefs, but that isn’t working. I know I’m not adding much but it’s all I’ve got. Tough times... we all need help.

      The lake sustained 50 resorts for 60-70 years before netting started. Taking out breeders is what changed.

      It's really cool. Thanks for sharing.

      The state has a grant for septic replacement. It was a nice option instead of coming up with 15000 in cash. They put a easement on my property taxes.
