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!!!

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
