We just got all 30 of our baits out, which wasn’t easy in the sometimes deep winter snow and then we got hit by a big spring snowstorm!
This was before the new snowfall.
Winter doesn’t seem to want to let go! What percentage of your bears are out of hibernation now?
Hey t-roy, I think all the bears are out by May 1 around here. Even with the snow we have lots of bears hitting the baits already. Our first hunters show up Sunday. Some baits we can only access with the track machine, that thing is a life saver, way better than a snowmobile in this country.
The guides did manage to get it stuck a couple of times but to go from dry ground, to mud to deep water to slushy snow it’s almost unstoppable. And doesn’t have the maintenance headaches of an Argo, especially when the tracks are on a Honda!
