Wisconsin Bear Hunting
I'm no expert having shot my first bear last year but I think he is bigger than 120#
Shot my first bear ever on Sunday. I had bigger ones in over the last 3 weeks I was baiting but wasnt going to pass a legal bear. He came in Friday night as well and I couldnt make up my mind if he was legal or not based on how he came in and laid down. After looking at pictures of him and talking with friends I decided if he came back he wouldn't leave next time. Measured 49". I would guess maybe 120 pounds dressed at the most. Dont have a scale so no idea the exact weight. I got the whole thing on video so that is pretty neat too.
Thanks for the kind comments all!!
Yes it certainly is rewarding. We’ve got another coming next year too!
This post is genuinely incredible. I really like this post. It is remarkable among different posts that I ve read in a long time. You shake for this alright post. I genuinely welcome it. Winter Hunting
Luv great stuff and keep up the good work. Steve keep the posts coming I enjoy reading your posts. I hope you get GT he is a beast. I was up in florence county running with some good friends one of them got a really nice boar on Thursday. The best part was he got share the moment with is wife and 2 young sons. Can't do that sitting over bait. The best part of running hounds is it's a family affair. Good luck to everyone the rest of the way. Remember release those hounds.
My son shot a decent bear last weekend. When we skinned it out it had about a little bit more fat then a buck in the rut. Hide was good, 17” green skull, no apparent injuries. Tasted fine. Any ideas. Field dressed at 175 so I’m guessing about a 205 pound live weight. Woulda been a bigger boar w his fat. Maybe 250??? Zone c
I donated my tag to USSA 3 years ago and a young man from Michigan got a bear too. Good feeling to allow someone else the opportunity isn't it?
Best of luck to all the rest of season.
Luv, that is awesome!!!! Congrats to him!!
This weather is just horrible! No matter, dogs are why baits are not hit,
All my hunters were out of the woods by 630 thankfully, Thunder, and lightning not so much fun for hunting.
Surprisingly 16 of 22 baits hit. 6 during the day by small bears. 5 hit by monsters, GT being the king today. Big momma with her babies as well.
If I had the right hunter. Would have played with GT. 72 yr old hunter, fresh off knee replacement. We are not going to play a ground war. When its my wifes turn. Its game on!!'Yesterdays rain, or todays wind. Really cleaned up the cherry trees. After tonights storms. Doubt will be much left of any berries. Mushrooms could be a problem though.
The big shocker this year. Is Big Momma. No doubt it is her with cubs this year. 2 yrs without them. Close to dying twice last year. The real shock is the weight loss. The pair of cubs id say each took 50 lbs off her!! Maybe more, but a drastic difference!! After season ends. I will put together several years of pics to see this drastic change. Amazing stuff!
This weather will break, and baits will get hit, Just got to put the time in!!
Pic is GT last night being a tease!!
I had the privilege of hunting with my good friend since high schools 60 year old Dad over the weekend. Had an absolute blast and Jim was able to harvest his very first bear, and a very good one at that! A 308 pound fawn eating boar! He had bone fragments and large segments of deer hide in his stomach. That was a first for me!
