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.

    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!
    • When is the date unsold bear tags go onsale?
    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
    • I've fished it once about 10yrs ago Ice fishing from fishermans wharf....caught one perch in 3 days.   I was thinking about trying the lake once again with my wheel house..but it looks to be shut down. I talked to a guy from the Mille lacs area last winter at upper red, and he said the lake was great and it was the best he'd had for large fish ever on the lake.   I did did some reading and seen quite a few different views. The one I found most compelling and seemed to make the most sense after reading and looking at data was the view of a walleye population being mismanaged with slots, allowing for way to many large fish that have basicly eaten themselves out of food with the baitfish they prey on. Which in turn turned them into predators of their own young walleye. Hence the collapse of the walleye.
