A few fun bear pics

11 posts in this topic

The first round of trail cam pics are in and we are seeing lots of bear, and lots of raccons trying to break into the baits (300+ pictures worth of racoons). Seeing some nice bear hitting the baits such as the one below but I like the fun/odd pictures more, like a bear that sleeps in the bait all night.

Fatty has already had enough candy...those are very long logs in the background to cover the big hole this guy digs.


Nice Star chest


Little Boo Boo bear noticed the "no flash" camera. Those are two seperate shots spaced thirty seconds apart. confused



This one looks good


Sleepy bear, this guy liked the bait so much he came in about 8pm had a bite to eat and just went to sleep on the bait logs until 7:30 in the am before streching then moving on. sleep

I like the shots from a little farther back where you can see the bait along with the brush wall in back of it.

I have learned alot about baiting and bait sights from this site over the years but I only baited/hunted bears 1 season. I enjoyed the anticipation / sits on stand immensly. Logistics are the only thing holding me back from giving it another shot.

Your bait locations and setups look ideal for archery.

Keep The Bear Pics Coming

I started baiting at 12:01 AM the 15th, as soon as we can start in MN. We have trouble with a group trying to jump our baits so I just get out of bed a little earlier thats all.

As for the statement about archery set-ups most of our baits are archery set-ups since that is the majority of our clients. Each bait has a tree for archery and a second for gun hunters. All it takes is a quick move and the stand is ready for either.

As for cameras we are using the Moultre(s/p?) cameras with great luck.

I have a bunch of pictures from this morning I will post this evening.

    •   I'll help you here, but you're going to have to call the nurse to wipe yourass.
    • So, how many other votes, in a state where vote fraud is a way of life even though the establishment denies it, got changed?  And did they undo the fix as soon as Moynihan walked out the door?     Sounds to me like, at the least, some folks ought to lose their job.  Maybe the feds should launch an investigation under the voting rights act or one of those things.     Ha Ha, like that is going to happen. 
    • That's what I asked, whether the stories were different or just the headlines.   Bear stepped in on Jiggy's team and said they aren't going to bother to answer.    So, since you googled it, you must have a source and the answer to my question.   Well? 
    • Chaws really hit it on the head, we are a very small market industry in regards to ice fishing. Even the walleye industry is small potatoes to advertisers compared to bass. In many cases if you're not 1 or 2 in your product line you're either a garage/hobby company or going broke. I get a kick looking at the intricate paint jobs on some of the tiny ice jigs that get sold for a couple dollars, no way can they justify the time. 
    • Couple more pics.  Got all the plastic on and the floor insulated. 
    • Rather ride my Harleys to but its Minnesota and if nothing else its going to get cold soon. Put my bikes into storage and the snowmobile is siting in their place and ready to go. I know its going to get cold I just hope we get some snow with it this year. Sure would like to get more than the usual 2-300 miles on the sled this year.
    • No it'sreal and it's different same day editions of the paper.  Easily googleable.   It's basically what happens when your boy's policies change a dozen times over the course a few hours.
    • Ok, so we can take from your post that you are solid media backer and supporter.     No, your antagonist posting is.
