Wisconsin Bear Hunting
You are right B.G, bears are nothing to be afraid of. Especially the ones from Chicago.
Thanks you for the information..l never believed that we were at risk for any reason... Just want to know and tell my son's to enjoy what they see... thank you Sir..
Huntfish - people have this romance with black bears being these man killing beasts that need to be feared. It’s just not true. They’d rather eat berries than your teenage boys. What do you do if you see one Bowhunting? Nothing. Enjoy it and take some pictures. A deer might show up a minute later.
Deer and bears exist together in the same habitat. I have several pictures of deer walking right into a bait while a bear is there. Sure, there probably is some fawn predation but I don’t believe it’s significant.
Triplets are very common.
You’re more likely to get attacked at the grocery store than by a bear. Shouldn’t even be on your radar as something to fear.
I have a few questions on bears..
I am new to hunting/ landowner in southern Price county...I have a few trail camera pictures of bears this summer and early fall.. Questions
1.. If you see one bow hunting what do you do?
2. How many Cubs do sow's have? I have one with 3 normal?
I don't know anything about bears and how they live/act when it comes to people..I have 2 teenage boys and they want to bow hunt now that we have land..
Any advice will be extremely helpful...
I DID NOT SAY THAT!! Inhookem , not your fault either. Something with the site quoting replies?
I would say something like that about tourists seeing a 500 pounder.
It's different in the woods. Hardest animal to judge. Even with experience.
Every legal one is a trophy of a lifetime. I don't care what anyone says about that.
Steve White wrote " still bigger than those "300lbers everyone sees".. Yes, I have seen that too. Many people double the real size of the bear they shot. I have seen guys slapping their bear saying " it's a good 250- 275 when it is likely not even 150. A little story here. My brother shot a bear and it weighed 68 lbs gutted. It was his 1st bear . I thought for sure it would go 125 lbs. I was way off, but at least we admitted to it. I shot my 1st bear and felt really bad. I registered it and the lady said " That is not that small of a bear, I've seen much smaller". It was 83 lbs. My 1st bear and I thought it would go 200 live. My next bear I knew was a lot bigger. When I shot the bear , I didnt want to get too exited so I figured 150 lbs. gutted. My dad said , no way, that goes 200 . It was 6'6" head to tail rug. It was 224 lbs. The taxidermist insisted it was a 400 lb. It got me 83 lbs of meat .
TR I got to agree on that. One fat belly on a short bear with a little head. Hard to judge with our something for reference. Without that pointed little head.
Thats a big sow
Any reports or stories? Steve White?
