i got a tag this year for bear hunting and i amm looking for some advice. i am wondering wear i should bait on my land. the last 2 years i have had a friend and a family member hunt the same stand and both have seen bear and got them on the trail camera at the same stand. my dad thinks that i should hunt on the other side of the land which is across a fairly messy swamp. do bears really travel that far and through that much just to get food. any advice is greatly appreciated. thanks. notice the screen name. that is literally the spot that the bear have been seen and that is not a joke. the spot is called bearhill and that is the name of the road we r closest to.

Got to share this picture for one of the members of this site! Just another average camp meal here. Howver, there is something special in this picture. That I have been passing around. Everyone loves it!!

Scooter,  You obviously got a problem with me.   Your obviously local as well. Perhaps the illegal guiding going on. Side baiting me?  That post was also very obvious to many that follow this thread.  It was a complete BS post. There is no land not open to public hunting on the oxbow.  Perhaps your the guy that told my hunter he was on private property.  The guy behind me today. Staying far back even though I drove extra slow on purpose.  Perhaps just another wolf patrol account. In any case a coward!

What does the deer horn have to do with the thread?? Part of the hunt, part of the story.  Just like the camp meals I prepare. All part of the hunt.   An actual bear hunt!! Not a completely BS post directed right at someone.  

I warned the lake link moderators about this right away. They did nothing! So I had to call you out!  Off course you took the bait!!   Hopefully the moderators will now take care of it!!

Steve white same as what does stepping on your dogs horn have to do with a bear forum. And what does having a hole in your foot have to do with it also.

Finally broke the curse this morning. 260lb dressed boar with 2 white patches. Never seen this one on any camera before. Don't know where he came from. I was way off on the game cam pic. Thought it was 175 if lucky!  Almost didn't even put down. Hunter said he had to eat though. Guess he will be eating good for awhile! The 150 yd drag would have been awesome normally. Having stepped on one of the dogs deer horns last night. For the second time this week!  I have a large puncture wound in the bottom of my foot. Thanks to adrenaline, and tight boots it was manageable. 

No sitters out tonight, and nobody for the morning. We get a much needed bit of rest. Could hunt for the wife's bear. I know she would rather sleep in though!  Besides can hardy walk now, dam antlers!

I was just guessing 120 since I didn't think he was all that big, but again being my first one I have nothing to compare him too. 

After he was gutted I could grab the hide at the back of the neck and down by the tail and with a lot of effort pick him up still. I wasn't able to do that with the guts in the bear it was just too heavy. Based on the comments on here maybe he was between 120-150 dressed then. 


It was for sure an interesting experience for me. I will do it again when I have enough points in 5 years. Probably try to hold out for a bigger one and use my bow next time. Its only the 3rd type of big game animal I have taken in my life. It didnt get my heart pumping as much as a big buck or Antelope, but it was still a fun experience.
