Wisconsin Bear Hunting
Jak, I am exactly 1 mile west of town right on south side of 70. The billboard now for the dentist. Just west of Coloma estates is on the edge of our property.
Will never say we are the best. Just work hard at what we do, and our lives revolve around this pursuit. 365 for us!
Yes Rick, I live in St Germain. Thanks for the kind words.
JAK79KEL, he is right. Might take a few more years. This year it mostly took 11. A few with 10 got a tag. Year before 50% with 9 did draw. Really we just dont know. Depends on how all the numbers play out. By the looks of things. Numbers are way down the year. That may cause a slight increase next year. Either way, feel free to look me up. It's not what we do. It's how we live 365!
Yesterday finally pulled the last cameras, and stands out. Bears on cam through the 12th on what remained. Final tally on the last day was 13 of 16 remaining baits hit. Far better than normal, but expected.
Not afraid to admit our worst year ever. Just lots of little bears showed up. Which of course is good down the road. It takes a lot for one to pass, and eat a tag. That took 10+yrs to get. Very proud of those that made the choice to do just that!!
Still trying to head to MI for the last week up there. All his baits are still getting hit hard. No surprise with the warm weather, and lack of food up there.
Either way already looking forward to next year. Scouting every bait site, and beyond. Seeing how the bears approach each bait, and how best to set up. It's a daunting task, and wears out ones boots. That next step in the bush though. Just might unlock a few secrets. At least that is what we all hope for.
Congrats to all that were successful this year!!
Any suggestions for a bear guide for next season? Looking around St. Germain as I have a buddy I can stay with. Most likely bait, but would be open to dog hunting. I have 8 points this year so thinking I can get a tag next year. Will be my first bear hunt. Thanks.
