Bear Hunters who take the easy way

4 posts in this topic

I have been bear hunting for the last six years around the North Entrance of Itasca State Park area and it seems every year you get those lazy hunters. I'm talking the ones that dont do any baiting or scouting themselves, they show up the day before opener drive around find some baits that are being hit and then set up 150-200 yards away from them. It really drives me nuts, I go up a couple times a week bait my station and all that only to find out the day before the season a guy is setting up right next to you. Wondering if anyone else has problems like this ???

I can understand. It's inconsiderate, intrusive, and really unsportsmanlike behavior. Unfortunately, it's also very legal. Not much you can do about it but find a better hiding place for your bait I suspect.

We have a new bear guide in our area. He is using photos of my son-in-laws bear hunters/bears on his HSOforum. My son-in-law works hard, locates bears, does the baiting, gets clients, and his clients get their bears. This new guy posts the photos on his HSOforum as though they are his clients/bears. Another example of a bum taking the easy way.

not to derail the conversation, but if those pics belong to your SIL, then they are copyrighted and he can have the taken down. A strongly worded letter from a lawyer is very cheap and an easy deterrent to such behavior.

    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
