Well....I got him. If you look at the picture dated 7/14/06 13:30. i believe that would be him.
Got to my stand at nine, baited. Dad drove off with 4 wheeler after I was in my stand. About 12:30 I woke up from a snooze and there he was in my bait looking at me. As he was looking at me I give it to him. Right thru the center of his front chest, right tru the heart. He dropped dead right in the bait pile never took another step. DNR says he weights 236 dressed out and is 3 years old. I am happy with this bear it is my first and I have learned a great deal about bear hunting. And I also thank you for all your input. I am just sad I need to wait anoer 5 yrs. I will post a couple pictures of him after I get him loaded. Thanks..
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
