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..
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
