Wisconsin Bear Hunting
Show me, I know of a guide in Minn. that Builds a blind on top of a pallet. So its big enough for one person. Pretty much built all out of pallets. One shooting spot facing the bait. Every year staples new brush on the outside for camo. Small enough to be moved with an atv. Works for him fine.
Sorry to hear the idiots are at it again. Harmless pranks are one thing, but to put someone's life at risk is totally another level of dangerous, disrespectfull, and illegal behavior.
One long question for you. I have two established bait stations on my 13 acre property. I know.... too close! I am surprised however How many time I see different bear... the same night. My question is: I am strongly considering removing the ladder stands and replacing them woth home made shooting shacks. Your opinion? Do you think this would substantially curtail the bear activity I have had in the past, or will they get used to them after a while and return. I have had a few big bear hit these stations in the past. More this year than ever before. However, because they are fairly close to our cabin and other houses, we normally only see young bears and sows. This is the first year I have scouted the county Forrest land bordering out property. It was very interesting. The first effort was crazy. Set up a camera... sprinkled a lot of "Cherry Burst powder" scent made by Northwoods Bear Products.... went back the next day to check the camera. I could not believe what we saw. A bear... well over 200# not only stopped to check it out, he layed down and slept there all.night. Anyhow, what is your thought of building a shooting shack or two on my property. It would certainly make a hunt more comfortable for my elderly family and friends. TIA
Cool temps seems to have helped the baits some. However, I feel that the lack of food in the forest has nothing to do with it. About 15 miles I have put on in the bush over the last 3 days. Finding nothing but grasses out there. Barely any mushrooms of any kind either.
Big Momma I believe is now safe for the year. Doubt I will have another hunter sitting in that spot this year. The last hunter was 3 nights ago. She came in at 9:20 that night. The last 2 nights she has been in at 7. Smart old girl!!
Do have one hunter coming back Oct 4th-9th. Might sit that last day, but of course the rest will be with the dogs.
Jackwagons have started to play again. While baiting yesterday the girls found a couple of metal objects buried in the bait trail. I had to go back out with the law to investigate. The objects were of no serious threat to humans, but surely could have hurt a dog. A sad life you must live. To have the time to play these games.
