One odd thing that I have noticed and will pay more attention this weekend.
I do not remember seeing any other bear sign in this area just the tracks from big boy.
The closest other bear tracks (8 to 8 1/2") are about 1/2 mile to the north east.

because the big boys do not share their territory with any other bear,, if u r correct about this whole thing then u r definitely in this huge bear living room

u should not concentrate on this bear only, since u r only allowed 1 week to hunt, the more tracks the better the odds, this area now hold one huge bear and this bear will kill any other bear that come near his place, so come hunting season u will not see many activity in this area, i would pick this spot if i have more time to hunt and i've hunted bears before and going for the big boys only nothing else ..

If i were u i would pick a spot with more tracks, or tracks combined the huge bear and other bears in the area, this way u will see more bears and might also get a chance on the big bear .

for next season or if we have more time then we would go for the big boy only , but it's up to u if u wanna do it this way , i am just giving u all the options and it's up to u which one u wanna go for

tell ur family it's my pleasure Thumbs up
i am leaving for a scouting trip , i will be back soon , stay on top of it while i am gone Thumbs up

Yep
This is the plan
She’s allowed 3 bait stations, I'll bait 3 for a month and have trail cameras at each, If we get this big bear coming during shooting hours maybe we can pattern him so my daughter can have a chance.
The crib to the north has lots of sign of different bears, and the station across the highway is where I've found other good sign, so one of these other 2 will be the back-up if that big one wont cooperate which ever one seems best.
Sound right?

Have a nice trip

Well, hopefully he'll do the courteous thing and leave you alone given all the time and effort you've devoted to the spot.

Might get me kicked out
I went back and removed the post that gave out to much information.
I'll only put pictures of any bear in the cameras and real vague information from now on.
I'll talk more with PM
