Ever hear a bear snort? Not a woof.

6 posts in this topic

Last evening while baitng, with still no hit. As I approached the site, in front of me in the woods I heard a good size twig snap that caught my attention, as I was not in any hurry an just kinda nonchalauntly opening the crib an piddleing around fron my left rear flank I heard a sound I had only hear one other time in my life, it distincly sounded like a short pig snort, then I heard it again. The last time I heard that sound was when I arrowed my first bear, He came in on a burn an looked at the blob in the tree an sucked in air making the same sound I heard last night, If it was a deer it surley would have sounded off alot more alarms an crashed away. I was not ready to hunt so I filled the crib and coverd the bait an left, I'm hunting tonight regartdless of what the trial cam shows, what do you guys think? Boar

Perhaps it was a short pig? laugh

Or maybe a short pig who thinks that he's a bear? laugh

I just hope that if it's a bear he doesn't spook off, or turn nocturnal on you. You're overdue for a good bear.

Did you snort back at him? Your e-name is boar. grin

I have actually heard a bear snort. Maybe this one will come back.

Although, it's a commonly recognized fact that the African Black Mamba, when startled from it's nocturnal feeding pattern, will rear up to nearly five feet off the ground to engage it's enemy, and audibly snort like a pig, warning the challenger prior to the attack! shocked

If by chance, the next time you near your bait site, you hear this snort again, and you see a ten-foot long, sleek black snake, you should run very fast in the other direction. eek

If not, it might be a bear, or a pig, or perhaps a boarsquatch! A three-quarter mount boarsquatch would look cool on your basement wall! wink

Good luck buddy. Hang in there. You'll Get One!!!

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
