Another crib question?

Recommended Posts

I'm expanding my range an heading north of me in no qouta about an hour one way, Once a week is all I can muster for this site an am not worried about quantity, cause I litleraly have many tons, for you once a weekers out there, what type or style or size of a crib da ya use. Or should I just make a larger version of what I use? Or dose it matter at all? when its open it's open, not much you can do about it. Or just a ground dumping. Man gotta get that barell on private land law passed. boar

The same legal description with the D.N.R.. Cribs are in the same clearing/ site. You register the "Site" not the crib or contents.

I would make one normal bait and one super heavy bait. Keeps the little bears working and allows food for the big shooter. When I say heavy bait I mean make it out of 18-20" green logs six foot long and lock them together between two trees. You want it for 400lb plus other wise it just keeps making smell until you can get back to the the smaller bait.

Hey boar, you'll be getting up in my neck of the woods the way it sounds...not where I bear hunt...but the area I live in...we bear hunt mainly north and east of Fourtown...I have hunted deer in the area's you're probably talking about all my life and there are quite a few locals that bear hunt that area...I think what you'll find is it is "similar" to hunting in big woods country...there are many wooded/swampy area's that are over 1500 acres in one chunk and some even as large as 20-30 thousand acre's...the bear density is really quite good and we have been seeing several bears on a regular basis this spring including several sows with cubs and larger boars as well....this spring I found a den that was used last winter in a logging scrap pile about 100 yards from one of our cabins! My brother took a 400 pound boar last year with his muzzy on the opening weekend about a half mile north of my mom's place and he had bears hitting his baits right up to the end of season but never had another one walk in when he was hunting...

Boar my email is [email protected]

As for compitition...if possible, we always "try" to get at least two miles from any other baits...it is harder in the western part of the no-quota area as many of the woodlots/swamps are not that terribly big...others are...but most of the locals kind of know where and why (food source), the bear are hanging out...if you're lucky enough to be able to spot where someone else "may be" hunting...you can get away from them at least a couple of miles...there's nothing worse than a bear that's hitting one, two, three baits or more...you never have a clue when they'll come in and while you're sitting there waiting for him to hit your bait some guy a half mile away has already put an arrow through him! It's hard to spot another bait on opening weekend of baiting when someone's only been there one time...but you can look for vehicle tracks pulling off the road, into logging trails, etc... And if you can get some permission on a fairly large chunk of private land you can get away from other hunters somewhat too...just make sure that the landowner assures you that you're the only bear hunter on that chunk of property...

    • Jeff, did you ever get this resolved?   I don't see a high speed relay for a 2012? There is a blower motor module. The module should have a full time battery and a full time ground. Then there will be a control wire. The control wire should vary voltage depending on the speed request.
    • Sounds like a great trip @jjdubsoutdoors!  Kinda what I was hoping to hear about the lake.  I’ll definitely watch episode 2 and 3.   I had loose plans with some friends to go out there in January but we called it off due to NO ice on the part of the lake we were planning to go to and iffy ice in other areas.  When I called the marina, the owner said he had guys launching their boats yet so bring that instead of ATVs or sleds!
    • We plan on going to Canada next year! Boy, ice was super variable. Anywhere from 3"-15" so we really had to be careful and check as we went. I'm sure by now you could go most places with a snowmobile, but still gotta be careful.
    • Was going to say why not just go to Canada, but it looks like you guys did pretty well for the long drive. How much ice did you have?
    • Drove 16 hours, 1000 miles from Wisconsin to our destination Fort Peck Lake Montana. Our goal was to catch lake trout ice fishing. It wasn't more than 10 minutes into dropping lines in the water that we already had two hookups and one lake trout on the ice. Throughout the day we had steady action pulling lake trout through the ice. Eddie from Lakeridge Motel was super helpful in setting us up on general areas where to go, baits, and techniques. Stay tuned for Episodes Two and Three, the lake trout continued to get bigger each day!   This day we set up on a nice 40-50 foot hump surrounded by deeper 70-80 foot water. Most of them were caught on either big spoons or big jigs with tubes, largo shad, or hair jigs. If you get the chance to ever make it out there, it is definitely a neat lake to check out for some amazing opportunity to catch giant lakers, walleye, and pike. Unfortunately we never made it around to targeting walleye or pike too much, but a few weeks ago a guy pulled up a 34" 16# walleye further up river. What a neat fishery.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i74ShAZoSZg
    • Here is what I would do. Hook up the trailer and turn on the 4 way flashers or hold the brake pedal down. Now you have a known good on the right side to compare to. Go to the fuse box under the hood and locate the "TRL L TRN" and "TRL R TRN" fuses (both 10 amp fuses). With either a test light or a multi meter check the fuses for power. should see 12 volts on both or the test light should illuminate brightly. If the right side does and the left side does not, unplug the trailer and recheck. If the left side fuse now shows power the problem is in between the fuse block and the turn hazard switch or the turn hazard switch itself.   If there is good power at both of the fuses than the problem is in between the fuse block and the trailer plug. Power is going away as soon as you plug in the trailer which tells us there is probably a corroded wire in that circuit. If you where to measure the voltage at the trailer you will probably find there is still a small amount still present on the circuit. Corrosion = resistance = voltage drop under load.   You will be looking for the yellow wire that runs from the fuse block to the trailer plug. There are typically connectors in the harness near the rear of the vehicle. Find that wire in the connector and back probe it with trailer connected. If there is 12 volts the problem is towards the trailer. If there is not 12 volts the problem is towards the fuse block.
    • Bad grounds  make trailer lights do odd things. Tail llights work until you step on the brake then nothing works until you let off the brake. Tail lights off and all the lights flash when using the turn signal. It is likely not a ground issue.
    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.
