Bears only at night

Well, this is my first post and it looks like I'm not gonna make a lot of friends. I've been following this thread and while theres a lot of good information, there's a lot of hooey as well. So much so, that I don't even know where to start. So, here goes. Most bears likely know you're there in your stand, especially those big old mature males. The younger ones, well, they really don't care if you are or not. You're only fooling yourself if you think your scent free preparations are working. So, broadcast your presence in the area and this is done while baiting. Use different baits and scents each time so that a bear is climatized to the likelyhood of strange odors. And bears don't always use one trail coming in and one going out. Often they will leave on the same trail they used coming in because they know its safe. And the bears in this instance are probably used to humans in the area because of the camping thats going on nearby. As for morning only baiting, that doesn't wash either. One young guy was having a tough time getting his bear so we went in together, While he got settled in, I hung a freshly skinned fish in a tree then left. That was about 4PM. He took his bear at 4:20PM. So, lots of mis-information here. Theres only one constant. Bears will often do unpredictable things--just to show us how little we really know about them.

Redrider, I think porka is refering to the bear's head, if u look closely to the head ( click on the picture to see it better ) u will see that the bear hae a long nose, a very long nose indeed ! but i do not find this weird, actually it's great to see a bear with long nose, because there is a good chance that this bear will score big when measuring the skull . but way too early now cause the bear is still young.

I recommend u keep a close eye on this bear Porka, few more years and should score BIG !
