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.

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
