Looks like you got some real nice bears for hunters to get a shot at. Good luck with the season and keep the pictures coming.

I am guessing the last 2 pics, that one will go 450 or better. I am hoping a hunter gets him and I am able to get it on a scale. If we harvest him, I will let everyone know. More pics to come over the next few weeks.

Boar - Would be happy to have you up if you ever decide to. If you would prefer a do it yourself hunt and camping. I have an area I rarely use that we could work something out for a veteran like yourself. Let me know how you do this season.

Only problem is that the big guy seems to feed after dark based on the trail camera times.

Not trying to be a wise guy, but he likely wouldn't have gotten that big if he came out to feed before dark.

Trying different ways to get them to come out during shooting hours is half of the fun, in my opinion.

The big guy slips up every once in a while. I have pics of him last season and a few different times he was out in the early evening. The guys that come, just aren't patient enough to pass the nice bears that come in after a night or two of the big boy being elusive. Hopefully this season he gets ground checked.

Here are a few more pics from a couple of sites I was at today. Baits are being hit steady, but not much being ate at the sites compared to most years. Color phase bear in the one pic.

Here is a picture of 1 of the bears our hunters got this hunt. Both hunters had bears in within 3 hours of being on the stand the 1st night. The 1 hunter got this bear and teh other huunter was unfortunate and wounded his bear and it could not be recovered after 12 hours of tracking. The blood eventually ran out and there was nothing else we could do.

Thanks Boar. The one in the pic was a nice bear,about 225# but the one that we didn't recover was a fair bit larger, I would guess in the 300-325# range. Hoping to see him show back up on the trail cam to know if he's going to make it. I have a couple of neat videos from baiting today that I will post after I get them uploaded to youtube.

    • Day 3 Afternoon   We went for a short walk into the area I thought I heard the birds gobble in the distance when I shot my bird.  We couldn't find any birds and were nearly done with our walk when I glassed across a cow pasture and saw birds up in some trees!   I quickly checked the map and found that they were dangerously close to public land.   We made a dash for the car.   The walk in to this spot was pretty short and very close to houses and the farm that had the cows.   We ended up close to the fence and I felt the turkeys we saw should be just below us.   Some whitetail deer spooked and then turkeys started filing past along the fence.  I counted four or five hens, but no gobbler.  We stayed a bit and crow called thinking maybe a flock got busted up.  In the end we just backed out without spooking the hens off. 
    • North Metro Bass Academy Custom Tackle is having a 15% off sale this week 4/23-4/30 on all custom jigs orders.  We are also running 10% off all of our Tungsten Weights .... Flipping, Worm, and Drop Shot.  This will be our last sale before the season opens - so get in on it this week.  Tight Lines!  All of our products are on our web page North Metro Bass Academy   [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL] [/URL]
    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!
