I just checked some cameras today and I got a couple videos of a bear or bears. I been hunting this property for about 15 years now and this is the first sign of bears I've seen. I'm a total noob when it comes to bears so I'm wondering what others thought on just how big they are and if they are sows or boars. Either way I think its kind of cool to see something other than deer.

Cool videos .

I would say a "nice" bear.   Definitely not last year's cub or anything like that. 

Hope you get him.  You in no quota zone?

This is in area 45 so unless I can snag a surplus tag no bear hunting for me. Never bear hunted before so it would be just for the fun of it kind of deal. I wont know how much this bear frequents this area until the end of August when I check my cameras again.

This time of year, unless you gots lotts of nuts and berries un your woods, ya might not see him again., but its all up to the bear. he could be happy there. 3 main ingredients for bear, food, water, cover. looks to be about 3-4 years old, no way of telling gender. if he was 1-2 it'd be with mamma. thanks for sharing!. word of caution. once you bear hunting, youll never wanna stop. Its the greates thrill for me!!

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
