The other bear was still in the tree. Didn't move or make a sound. The three year old, hung around the baits munching for an hour before wandering off. Half hour later tree bear slowly came down.

Tree bear feed for a while. Before heading back into the forest. We had a couple other bears come in. Then just before sunset a sow came in with two of this year's cubs. Only got a picture of her and one of the cub's.

A father and son out of Kentucky doubled tonight. The father's bear came in at 354 lbs. With a skull we'll over 20 inches. By the time we got back from the site his bear was mostly skinned. The son took a nice three to four year old with a good coat.

Tuesday, June 4th, 2024. Third evening in the same site. There's a big bear on the camera coming in after dark each night. Hoping he'll come in while there is still light. With the heat yesterday. We have a fresh big crop of mosquitoes. Glad my son and I had our "Shannon Bug Tamers" on and brought a couple of Thermacell's. Started off slow this evening. Didn't have our first bear come in until 5 :30.

The first bear of the evening came back in around nine, for a late night snack. Then another of last year's cubs came in just after sunset. Tomorrow I'm taking the hold out off my son. If a descent bear comes in, we'll see what happens. ??
