We will be using this stand this Spring. Used green treated lumber to blend into the forest. Lots of room in the stand for getting an arrow off. Baited the site same day as we built the stand. It will be an 18YRD bow shot. Site is ATV access only.

Bait will be called Edison Lake Bait.

Chris, I've been looking forward to seeing your posts this spring. Gets a guy pumped for our hunt next year. Glad to see Joe is still at it, he's a good guy. I also like the stand you built, it looks like the one I sat in last spring. I think the home made ones have a little more room, can make the longer sit a little easier with the added comfort (IMO). Good luck!

Made 3 trips to Lucky Seven in Cambridge MN lately. Also a semi truck load being delivered to Dryden at 1:00 today. Tons of bait to keep the barrels full.

***Besides all that we get from Lucky Seven, we go through about 5 tons of dairy ration in a Spring season!!

Patrick, Joe is a great asset to Pine Acres. One day, he said he wants to take over the camp and continue the bear hunt. He might have to wait awhile!!LOL. The cabin in the pic in this thread is the one you stayed in last year.

Steve, we have many baits out right now. Snows been gone except in the bottoms. Looking forward to your arrival.

02-May-19
Good luck to you and all your hunters this year Chris. Can’t wait to make it back up there.

From: spike buck
02-May-19
Its rolled oats and corn steamed and rolled with molasses. Just like sweet feed used for horses. Also use this on our deer sites.

WE take the ration and mix in Donut filling.... then add trail mix and all kinds of other candies. All mixed by hand. Cement mixer gets all gummed up. Very hands on mixing!!

***We have cameras out but will not be checking them for about a week. Will rebait but leave cameras alone.

Thanks Dave!!

Edison Lake Bait. Brand new site for 2019. Pic is was taken as were clearing all branches and twigs in the way.
Each year we set up sites in new, unhunted areas. This Spring will have many such baits to hunt.

Each year we will take a select few previously hunted sites cut new shooting lanes and build new treestands. This will help the previously hunted bears feel less weary of hunters.

Although we now use barrels. We will keep the "NEW" sites as natural as possible. Permanent treestands are now roomier. They are set in surrounding cover. Not out in the open. We use ladder stands no lock ons.

Pretty well all our sites are baited now. Camera's out watching over the baits. Pics will be posted next weekend.

***back when we first started outfitting bear hunters in the mid 70's and into the 80's, about 95% of our hunters were rifle hunters. Now we have about 85% Bow hunters. Pretty well all our sites are no more than 23 yards, average is 17 yards. With some shots set to be about 12 to 15 yards for the long bow hunters.

Our cameras are set mainly to watch for sows with cubs.

***Its a Provincial offense with a fine of up to $25,000.00 if you accidently take a lactating sow. So I find it very important to focus on sex as much as size. In the process, we get great pics of shooter bears while sexing our bears.

I figured it would be pretty active, for how many bears I saw last year. Considering it was my first time bear hunting and averaged seeing probably 5 bears a night, I thought that was pretty good....no shortage of action for me.

Three hunters left for home today. The Archer, Steve, tagged out. Rifle hunters did not fare as well. One hit a nice cinnamon bear. Tracked it that night and the next morning to no avail. All 3 had multiple bears in front of them. All 3 saw shooter bears.

***AN IRON WILL BROADHEAD did its job on Steve's Bear!! Good blood, ran 40 yards!!

We go after bears the evening they are hit. Saves the meat. If we don't find that evening we give it another try the next day.

Chris - just love your threads and pics. Best wishes to you and your hunters. You’ve got to be the absolute best outfitter in Ontario!

Thanks Ibow… hunters saw bears. One hunter last night hit a bear in the blade. We did a grid search after last drop of blood but unfortunately no bear.

Each site has multiple Bears ( Competition ) actively visiting the sites. I try not to post the many night time pics. I try to focus on each bear.
