Well, my first day bear hunting started by putting a big dent in the side of my truck by backing up alongside a stump hidden in tall grass. Things improved somewhat as I saw two cubs come into my bait around 4 pm; however, no mother bear showed up and they only stayed about 10 minutes. Since this is my first time hunting I'm a poor judge, but I'm guessing these were two year old cubs and the mother ousted them, or else the mother was shot. At 6 pm I had three cubs come in from a different direction, and about 5 minutes later the sow showed up. They stayed for almost 50 minutes and devoured most of the bait. I have been baiting this location every day and the bait is gone every day. I stayed until dark but no other bears came for dinner. I'm somewhat nervous that I will have no bears to shoot in this location, since I saw 5 cubs and one mother bear, all of which are illegal to shoot. I have read that boars often stay away from sows with cubs. Should I move on to another location where my bait is being hit but not nearly as hard or stay at the above location another day or two? Thanks for your advice.
