I'll once again be doing a video series of my spring bear season. Carcus will be making his usual appearance as well. I'm not guiding this year, so I'll have lots of time to try and get that 21". Also, this will by my 12 year old daughters first bear season. She will be trying to get one with the crossbow on the ground. She's not picky, but we are hoping for a nice representative bear for her. Best of luck to all the spring bear hunters!
Carcus and I hunted a couple days ago. I brought my youngest son, Asher (8). We saw 4 bears with one pretty brown sow that had a boar pestering her, she might be the demise of a big bear this month? We saw a beautiful 6 footish brown.
Carcus saw 3, with a couple of them being colors, he said they were nice looking bears but nothing big.
It's still early and the baits have been restocked waiting for us to hunt next week. I made a micro move and I think this is the prettiest stand I've ever hunted. I can see down into the valley now and have a nice view as the bears walk-in through the oaks. Also, the tree is somewhat sturdy!
We are getting some warm weather this month and the bears will really start moving now.
Thanks guys...t-roy I moved baits to try and get away from it and still tons of "burrs" or burrdock. Jason's bait isn't that far away and he has none. The big guy I shot didn't have any. Lots of the small bears will have them, the big guys usually don't have much if any.
