Well after a long snowmobile season the snows mostly gone and the turkeys are gobbling and the bears are out of hibernation. Yepee!! I can finaly get back in shape. Ill put my bait out tonight along with my game camera I cant wait to get the pictures. I have always had action on my bait but there have been many mysterys about the bears what times they come and how big they really are . So thanks to supersider34's posts and advice ill be posting whatever pics I manage to capture. Good luck to all you hunters and have fun.

MY BAIT IS GONE

I checked my bait this past weekend and my bait was completely gone not a drop of cookies, bread or fat scraps gone. I found a track leading away it was 7.5 " long including claws, and about 4.5" wide at the pad. I loaded my film wrong in my camera or I would have some pictures. I reloaded the camera with film and will go back and check it tomorrow or Thursday. I cant wait for pics it will be nice to see whats coming in.

Idaho todays the big day for most Turkey and Bear!! wahooo!!

I checked my bait and camera yesterday I had 2 pics taken I have my camera set to take 2 pics every 10 minutes. I had 2 pics of nothing, Im pretty sure there are no branches on the tree I made sure. Im pretty sure somthing triggered the camera but im not sure what it was. my bait was mostly there I dont think it was eaten at all not sure because I didnt put any branches over the bait. But my question is, have you taken pics at night of nothing? There is only 1 way the bear could come in and not get his photo taken thats by coming in under the tree the camera is mounted to. All other angles are pretty well covered. The other thought I have is the flash only reaches 12 or so feet it seems. So maybe he could have tripped the sensor it snapped the pics and he was standing in the dark? Any ideas or thoughts? And I have tape on the sensor to keep the bear within snap shot range.
