Hunting Bear in Corn Field

9 posts in this topic

My neighbor has a bear wrecking his corn and I have never hunted them in corn. The woods butts upto the back side of the field where the damage is. Should I put a bait site back in the woods, Hunt on the edge with a view of the whole backside with no bait? I plan on putting the trail camera out tonight to see if I can get a time he is coming in.

Is he sure it is a bear and not just realy destructive Coon's? I have seen them destroy almost an acre of corn in a night. I would put up cam's and a bait site to get proof before jumping in and getting disapointed.

Definitely bear. Corn stocks are pulled out at roots and bear dung with corn in it.

I just have permission for Bear right now. I think he may deer hunt so I won't push my luck. Maybe next year.

I would try to see where he is entering the field and put a bait pile on the edge of the woods where he is entering so you can see both the field opening and your bait pile in the woods where he may feel a little safer.

boy for fun, never hunted bear in corn before, I would be out right now scouting around the corn seeing where he is enterin from, he should have a good trail matted down from exiting the woods to the corn. i would put some dog food in a back pack an an spread it around in the openning between the corn an the woods to get him to stop an set up down wind of that at a comfortable shot an a good view of the back side, break off a corn stock at about waist hight to get a good reference to how big it might be. Good luck let us know how it gose. Boar

The woodline is too young for a good tree stand in the thick stuff. I might have to go in 20 yards. I can see bear trails. The guy has a fence line/trail that is wide enough for a tractor about 40 yards into the woods and then it is the neighbors land that goes uphill. Neighbors is taller trees with good canopy but lite underbrush. I was thinking of setting up on the edge of the thick stuff and face the hill hoping to see him coming.

We've shot a lot of bears in corn, sunflower, and oat fields. We've done it the same every time.... sit on the treeline looking down the chute between the corn and the trees. Wait for him to slide out, and pull the trigger. No need to bait, he's got all of the food he could ever want already.

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
