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!!!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
