Of course he is back ,, he ain't going anywhere with plenty of food to eat,, if he disapear every now and then don't be too concerned about it , he will be back what he is doing is checking his territory and fordging himself on food that mother nature is providing him with .
I am loving these new pictures more then anything else because they were taken during the day light that's the best thing a bear hunter can ask for !
This bear pushed all other bears out because he is the dominent bear in the area, but they will come back soon , they are not going anywhere,, now that summer is here it will be tougher to keep these bears around but don't stop baiting even if they stop coming ( we will deal with it when it happens )
I am very happy to see this bear finally drops his guards and coming during the day now ,, u should be very happy and proud of yourself !!! this bear gona be yours soon !!!
Don't #$@#$ now !! keep it simple, set one goal for this fall and work soo hard for it, the goal should be one bear down one very happy PROUD hunter !!
What time the black huge bear is hitting ur site at night ? Hummmm something really good is happening at your site right now !!
what u have is 2 large boars hitting ur site and it seems the brown one is the smaller of the 2 .
show me a picture of the other black bear , i need to see how big he is , this new bear ( if he is the bigger one ) will do u a big favore by the season opener.
I think it's the black bear that pushed all other smaller bears out not the brown one, but to make sure i need to see a picture of him , u've got a new boss now
if u don't know at what time the black bear is hitting ur site then u need to get in control of ur site and know what is going on while u r not there by placing ur camera there all the time and checking the timing of these bears !! u have no idea how important these numbers are when u finally decided to take one of them out !
U were complaining about the critters that been feeding on the bait and what to do with them ,, well i would not touch them and let them hang around the bait and feed because they will add natural scene to ur site so bears will be more comfortable when they ( smell ) that other critters are around too ..
believe it or not , sometimes we advertise the site by inviting more critters to feed by dropping baits in the open for crows and other critters to see and come for a feed ! these are allies to u don't get rid of them
I'm getting the film developed that takes better night pictures and should have those tomorrow. The digital camera up there doesn't take very good night pictures, so it's hard to tell, so hopefully the film camera will have a picture of the black bear to send you.
I've got all the pictures ready to post for your review, but I was wondering if you could look at the pictures I'm just posting and see if you think it's the same bear in both pictures? If they are not, the brown one isn't my other big brown one is it? I'm thinking I've got three different big bears...
It's really hard to see from that angle but i thin it's not , this bear look bigger then the other brown one, i am sure we will have more and better pictures in the future to find out. so keep the pictures coming .
The black bear in the photo is not the dominent bear, in fact i believe the black bear is a dry sow , i am saying this because the head size of the black bear is smaller and narrower and there is lots of space between the belly and the ground. hard to be 100 sure yet maybe better pictures in the future can confirm this .
( hard to judge unless u sneak from behind and lift the tail up and take a closer look )
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
