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.

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.

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
