Do bears get Used To human scent w/o becoming a nuescence??

I was wondering how accustomend to human scent bears get if they reside close to humans, as I am going to be hunting a bear spotted practically in my back yard, 3 miles from town. Also a neighbor 3 miles cross country from me spotted a big bear in the yard, and wants me to hunt it out of there. How practical is that? And how would You adjust your successful, and proven techniques?

If it is used to humans then just go over there and take him. I use and know guys that put there shirts up on there bait every time they go up so they get used to there scent so when it is time to harvest one they dont know you are there.

Sounds reasonable!
Did this have any negative affect?
In other words, "Were hunters who hung their shirt above their bait, successful?"
Thanks
Anybody else have any input?

Yes it works. It just gets them used to your scent. Not anyone you take with you. But the bears will tear up any shirt you put up there. Well actually most of them.

What I usually do is put a small rag that has the oil I use for my gun on it. (Rem Oil), and also if your going to use any bug spray or anything like that, put some on a small rag and put it by your bait so the bears get used to smelling that.
