Amen Brother.. I should.. I set bait out Thursday at one location.. Sat I was out setting up 2 more stands.. I checked the SITE "A" Sat eve. too. It had already been hit. Elk Turd thinks thats the place but I want to check the others first. Tomorrow I hit Stand "B" and "C". I'm bringing the Picture Cam with me. If either one of those have Action I'm leaving it there. If not, Thursday we go to spot "A" and I will leave it... BUT. I think Tomorrow Evening will be the place I leave it....
So to make a long story short.. I haven't put it in the Hills yet
, And, I won't be back up to the hills till Wed of next week, Got too many things going on. HAD a quick question on the CAM.. Can I call ya tomotrrow ? I will anyways
Looking foward to some pictures !!! Hopefully I can get a pic of the Bear I shoot.. Also Working on A camcorder in another tree setup too... BUT that will jsut run while I'm hunting.... We'll see how that goes
If all goes well, Will have pics a week from Thursday !!
JB, AWSOME MAN !!!! I got the Camera out last night.. Had 2 cubs and MOMA come in.. I was video taping them and the Camera went off 2 times before we kicked them out.. I'll be up Sat even. to get the Roll of film.. Hopefulyl I set it up right and the pics come out.. Hopefuly more bears came in after teat too.. Hopefully not them dang crows
I always have to get the 1 hour developed because it causes too much anxiety to wait a couple of days......tell the clerk at the one hour you have a bucnh of these cameras and you will be back often with film.
They probably have a discount for such things. Also, tell them its OK to make copies for themselves...you will be a hero!
So.. We got up to the Site tonight... Changed the Film and just got back and took a shower....Figure I'd update ya. I have the Roll of film in the Truck, Fingers crossed that
A)a 1 hour photo shot in open in the morning
B)we got more then just the ground
I looked at the lense on the camera and it was knocked down with dirt on the outside of the box, I cleaned it up and Re~set it back up, Hopefully the 2nd set will go through tonight !!! And hope that the first set all were a clean lense !!!
Will fill ya in if we got any good pics in the AM !!!!!
6:45 >> we had the single cool looking bear come in. didn't stay long but got some vid.
9:17 >> momma and cubs came in, I got some vid of them and the Camera went off 3 times while we were there, We spooked them away and left and they were back within mins to eat some more.. they hung out till around 9:41
MOMMA to the right the 2 cubs to the left :
CUB standing on top of the barrel looking around !!
10:58 >> a single black bear with a white chest came in, this is probably the bigger of bears, don't know the Exact size yet, but will after I shoot it !! HEHE It doesn't look too big but it's standing on the Downhill sidebelow the barrel.
11:28-12:03 >>MOM and 2 cubs came back in for a 3rd time
Here is the Aggressive bigger cub, always coming in fast and strong !!
MAY 8th 12:17AM >>singlr brown bear color came in, End of roll of film
Is it normal for several different bears to visit a bait?
And hey are those bears small or what.
I have never bear hunted, so put it in rug size for me....that cub on the barrel,
Is he say..place mat sized or bigger?
The brown one and the one with a white spot look a lot bigger to me
Don't know HOW big or Small those bears are... I know the Cubs are a bit small. BUt hence the Deffinition of a CUB.. eh ?
The other ones are standing behind or infront of the barrel. I have a hard time judging a bear on the paw as it is when It's moving.. Let alone in a picture. BUt with the "EAR" rule, and LEG rule... none are Huge... that being said, doesn't mean some aren't shooters
I would estimate the MOM to be around 175# 200 MAX !!! and the cubs to be more like 60#'s ... I've never seen a 300# bear come out of Boise... Although Everone that has I run into in the Field se's 400# (PLUS) bears all the time.....
We figure there is around 10 bears on our site now.... Maybe 1 or 2 we'd shoot... But the other bears are working in, Still early in the game....
(EDIT) the cub is a bit bigger tehn a place mat.. but I guess not much bigger... say 2.5 feet(ISH) MOM will go a bit over 5' .. maybe 5 1/2.. HELL 6 feet if ya stretch her like the Guides do around here
