These are from a different property. We have a lot of bears roaming around.

How can you be sure? You've only seen two at one time. It might be just those two, getting around quite a bit.
Just sayin'

Roger


Mostly from all we've seen the past several years. These are also from two different cameras on my grandfathers 2 properties that are separated by a few miles and 6 lanes of highway. So based on just camera evidence there are at least 3. Our DNR has also increased the bear lottery system allowing for more tags in our area which indicates the bear population is continuing to rise. 15 years ago we rarely would see a bear. Now, it's rare to not see one if your out deer hunting during the early season. But I guess I can't really be sure, if that's your point?

:LOL2:

Here is where I need some help figuring these things out. As you can see these jokers like to get in front of the camera after legal hunting hours (half our before sunrise and half hour after sunset). What should I do?

Caught this guy several times now on film. This is the best one to share. He's been around a few years, so I'm hoping my son will get him next weekend on his last youth hunt.

Jim, are you hunting public land or a pressured area? I have problem with high pressure and all mature deer tend to go nocturnal towards November. However I agree with lovedr79. Just keep hunting, love makes them do dumb things and they will make a mistake. Also attempt to find bedding areas, as bucks will locate themselves to monitor the path to female bedding areas. "Have Does and the Bucks will be come"

That's tough! Have you tried mock scrapes or buck bombs when you get in stand? Do you know the rut prediction for this year in area? I love getting in right before rifle (week before) which usually leads to day time bucks.

Ha! I know this scenario all too well! I've even met them at the base of my stand in the dark which will surprise the hell outta when they start blowing and yelling in you face.

yes. especially does. blowing, stomping, tails in the air. one spot at my buddys place is way up on top of a wooded ridge. i have killed many deer from this stand, but depending on the weather they sometimes will come over the ridge to bed or start foraging early. i have been scared more than once at that stand when the woods came to life while it was still dark.
