Bear Hunters who take the easy way

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
    • Remember to get those birds entered!  I know there are more out there.
    • Well wondering if anyone is going to be out in the heat for the last turkey season.  I was out last night and just needed a nice strutter to get a bit closer.   I moved the blind to his entry/exit point.   He didn't want to follow the hen when she walked by my blind twice.   He stayed on the high ground in the field. Hoping for better results.
    • Game 6 of Caps and Lightning was fun to watch, even though the lightning got shut out.  Ove was a beast, really fun to watch him play like that.   Good for the Caps, I think they can nuetralize the speed of Vegas, they have some hard hitters on the team.  Hopefully Ove can kiss the cup.
    • Vegas vs Caps, we all saw that coming.
