Will never know will we. I have harvested a couple over 400 from this site and seen a Tcam some way bigger than those.

. 621 pics yesterday from 915 am.

Bears showed up at noon and left at 723 am. Only 2 the one with a chevron and the smaller one.

I did have a doe on Tcam where the sow and cub was yesterday

Good idea for the **** issue but they are not stupid. Before long he will have pics of the ***** climbing the tree and climbing down to the barrel to eat

. As I see it now . Not going to require a bear snare permit this season. All my bears are under 150 lbs . I sometime feel bad and wish I could release the smaller bears so they can get larger for next year. Guess that's the idea to hunt them and let the small ones pass.

Seems to be a lot of work for that site baiting. Needs 2 tool boxes and a cooler for his Keiths beer

Out of boredom during the lockdown I hung up a roadkill beaver and some flounder racks to see what would show up at my bear site. Haven#t had any large bears so far but I have had a assortment of animals. A small bear,a mink, a fox a coyote, some raccoons and a few turkey buzzards. Surprised that no larger bears showed up around the beaver

First year in 10 years that we are not over run with bears . Popcorn out for 2 weeks and only 2 bears Just once each. No one even pulled the logs out to get the bait.

Must be some good greenery in the woods.

All the outfitters say in the springtime..put out the protein in the early baiting pre-season for the big boars.

Could be a bad year here for bears . I have had bait out since June and only 2 bears. Walked around barrel twice and never even stopped for some popcorn. . Last year this time I had on average 5 bears most days. To top things off a washed 4 SD card in the washer yesterday. . Hoping:eek: fingers crossed they will work.
