Hello Folks......It's been awhile since I've posted. I put in for my bear tag this year but wasn't drawn and there were no secondary licenses in the area I hunt.....but, a good friend got his and hunted the stand & pit where I got my bear last year (you can read my story in last yr. Sept. posts). So we started baiting mid-August and I set up my camera. We were having somewhere between 4-8 bears hitting the bait pit each night (and a couple of shots during the day). I'll post some below. Really fun to see. So my friend hunts the first four nights of the season and the first night two cubs come in and play on the pit for about an hour, no mom, no others. After dark he climbs down out of the stand to leave and the cubs scatter.....that was an interesting walk out! The next three nights......nothing......except each morning the pit is demolished.....so they were coming but went completely nocturnal. Hopefully a couple of the guys in these pictures get a little bigger for next year when I get drawn!
