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!!

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
