Ramsay continues spinning his rhetoric to duck so many issues relating to the spring hunt. Expanding the fall hunt does absolutely nothing to offer more bear hunting opportunities to compensate for the loss of the spring hunt. Locals seldom hunt bears beyond the opening of the small game season in September and most bears taken in October are simply taken during moose season if the opportunity presents itself--which it seldom does.
I totally agree saw couldnt have said it better maybe this year will change his mind and put it on the list of things to get done. I think they should have reinstated it last season but I guess it didnt make the list of most important things on his list I think itll take more sightings and attacks for them to realize something is wrong.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
