Well, me and my partner got 1 going. Boy after 15 years of this, I don't know whats wrong, I just cant seem to get the Bear juices flowing, I haven't even done a Twas the night before bear baiting, I must have a feavor. I'm hoping once things cool down I get more motivated. New job don't help either. I'm waiting for some wheat to come off one field, which wont be long. nother site area I got get down there a look around. Anyone else get some sites going??

One of my baits was hit hard and the other nothing yet. The one that was hit had fresh bear dung by it. The dung had pieces of corn in it. I also found a few raspberry left in the area.

I got two up and running this morning.  Prospects looked good.   Lots of bears in my food plots on trail camera.  Most appear to be smaller bears, but somewhat hard to tell .  So it shouldn't take long to get hit.

Well boys I might be back in the game. Heard about a bear running around our hunting land. Going back to the farm on the 27. And if I get one on a trail cam, I will buy a tag...give it a go

Baits are continuing to get hit hard by multiple bears.    Can we make it 7 more days is the question?  Time will tell if guess.

Any other pics to share out there??  Things are terribly slow out there:(

Other than the ridiculous amount of bear hitting the baits all day long.   My kid loved peppering the chipmunks and squirrel with his water gun that refused to leave while we baited!

Just my son drew a tag this year on the leach lake unit. Last year the forestry moved in a few days before season and ruined all the baits, never got my bear until the last week. Fast forward to this season, baits are getting smashed, two forestry trucks parked within a few hundred yards of my trails today...guessing two of the baits will not be hit tomorrow....and the third bait only has a sow and cubs on it.   WHY!!!!!

    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
