Nice pix of the bears. They're entertaining to watch in spring & summer, but boy they get destructive in fall when larding up for winter. They ruined a number of archery hunts for me over the years, too. Bear comes into the area and the deer all run off.:mad:
My dad drew a WI tag this year and bagged a nice boar on my land on Sunday that field dressed 320 pounds. He saw 2 larger bears earlier in the afternoon, but they wouldn't come all the way into the bait site. The swamp was extremely wet this year and that threw a wrench into our standard bait site location. He hunted the swamp stand for 3 days without seeing a bear and we made a new bait site on Saturday. The next day he killed a nice one.
Good to see some with bear success. The bait sites I had for my daughter all went cold once the acorns dropped and another new one was hit once but nothing since. I think next week she is going to want to deer hunt instead.
