I am from WI and guided myself on a bear hunt for the first time last year. I got a bear and was stuck with the bug. This year my dad and I got tags for your great state of MN. I set up two bait sites. On Monday I was only going to bait, but decided to hunt based on trail cam pics. I shot a 300 lb bear at 3:30 when it was 88 degrees out. Last night my dad sat on the bait I had out for him for the first time. He shot a 200 lb bear at 7:00. Not bad. First time in MN, Self Guided, One day on stand for each of us, two nice bears. We'll be back!!

Arrowed? Oh, so you are practicing for when they take our guns away already, huh?

Nice Biff. I can't find a number for the guy I had for the rug. I'm sure you have found some skinning instructions by now. Getting real lucky with this cool weather. I remember it being warmer in Nov in past years. smile

Took this one on 9/1. Walked a mile to get to my stand in 85+ weather. Needless to say after 5 years of late snacking bears and sows with cubs, I was happy just to fill my tag, even with the hot weather.

our group of nine guys have gotten 5 bears so far. The only pics I have are of mine and another guys from opening day.We must have been bucking the trend this year. We started the year with 14 baits and the friday before season all but one was getting cleaned up.

(I cheated and copied a post from my home forum)

A few have been asking and sending me emails asking about fishing reports and I must admit I have let that slip a little. I have been running from sun up well past sundown for the last few weeks as a bear guide. Another aspect of Outdoors with Jonny P and Kelly P. I am starting to drag a little after weeks of baiting, fighting a fleet of trail cameras that are waaaaayyy smarter then I and now gutting and dragging.

Of course after looking at a few of the photos below it makes it all worth while. We really do have a good time during bear season.

Gordy Strikes with his bow two years in a row with a chocolate phased bear that pictures do little justice for.

Gordy's hunting buddy Ralph bagged his first bear and it was a nice long haired black. Ralphs only problem was picking what bear to shoot as multiple boars fought for pecking order behind and below him. Not to mention a few hours earlier Ralph was caught with his pants down. Yup changing into his hunting clothes along side his wheeler when a good boar peeked his head out of the grass a few yards away to see what Ralph was doing...other then hiding behind the four wheeler wonder just how hungry that bear was.

The bullet went in where? and came out its...? ooooh thats gonna stink.

Nic with a early afternoon bear that came right in on his heels...wonder what he was tracking?

So far it has been a GREAT season, only two hunters left to fill tags and I am hoping tonight is the night I can start packing away the bear gear and call it a perfect year.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
