Been feeding the bears thought I’d share the bears I watch from the house every night decided to sit in the shack last night for a few hours it was fun. The first 2 r small boats.
This number 3 a sow she run off the others.
Number 4 sow still has her winter coat she must of just made the winter, we have had at least 23 inches of rain since the last two winter storms there will be an abundance of nuts this year I believe.
Number 5 bear small boar he has some red on his back he actually took the bait from the bigger sow.
Number 6 bigger boar maybe 225 he came right to the shack was waiting for him to stick his nose in the front window looked to the side window he had his nose stuck in it didn’t get a pic, I left early not sure what else showed it was fun. Them bears keep me on my toes there walking right by me lol.
First bear had a different white on him.

That’s a lot of rain! Should help the critters get fat before winter ;) Thanks for sharing!
Lexi, is the shack in the same spot it was in spring. Looks different after everything greens up!!
Spike the crops r not bad the ones that got put in early but lots of fields didn’t get sown, Yes the shack is at the same place Gary looks different all greened up for sure. Thanks
Put my stand up today in Ontario. Looks good here.
Good luck Greg going to miss u this fall.
See you again in the spring. Life is good.
See you again in the spring. Life is good.
We have company for a few days so me and Duncan went and sat out in the box blind his first time to watch bears it was fun.
We were knee deep in them we had eight around us at one time.
This little guy got chased up the tree the double stands on.
This one checked the shake out.
A little argument.
Brown sow still had some of last winters hair on neck.
They r slim looking most the will gain a lot before winter sets in.
We seen at least 10 like some would say bear paradise, have a great day folks.
Awesome pics Lexi. Fun stuff u boys r having!!
Thanks Gary always fun watching them.
Sat for 1/2 hour last night it was too hot had a bear first time I seen him the three bear that come in we’re spooked for sure something bigger around. Got 1 guy for next week only slow fall for guests.
Good luck to you and your hunter's this coming week Lexi!!
Good luck guide!
Thanks guys my guest should be here by dinner time, he must be a contractor I assume he was trying to get away yesterday but didn’t make it, he’s only 6 hrs away ND.
My man had a lot of action last night to many to count I think he will watch bears for 5 days not sure if he will take one.
Wow!! have things greened up!! I recognize that last pic. I think!!
What stand is that last pic?
Hey Lexi, is that better than expected action for your fall hunt? Could that stand be the one you fenced off to keep out the cattle or perhaps the stand where we buried the 4 wheeler?
That’s the slash bait south I brought Greg there but u haven’t seen it Gary. It’s thick right now the vegetation we were in that bait this morning Brian liked hat one.
Hey Alexis.....how are ticks right now? I'd guess the skeeters are bad too with the wet spring you had?? John
No ticks they only r here in spring mostly ,the odd time u will get one in fall ,John.
We need a report guide!
Seen one I think he would of taken he came to the barrel once but mostly stayed back in bush 40 yards he says that was exciting.
Unfortunately big red bear still walking my hats off to Brian for using the tradition bow fell bad for him but it happens.
Alexis....did he ever get a shot opportunity? John
There's still time. 2 more days. Good luck Brian. Gotta respect a trad hunter!!
Hit in the front hip found arrow trail him till he bedded down then couldn’t find where he went.
Sorry didn't realize he had shot. Hopefully the bear heals up and is fine. Was there much penatration on the arrow?
6 in roughly Gary hopefully he heals.
Maybe keep the cam on that bait and see if he chimes in from time to time.
