Bear Hunt Update 7…

May 19 2008

Well… if it was a baseball game the score would have read something like Bear 5 Hunters 0. After our week in bear camp we ended up harvesting no bears. The area we hunted in had its worst winter in 10 years and the seasons seem to be off by about 1 month. This coupled with a almost full moon provided for little bear activity during shooting hours. All of the baits we hunted were being hit on a daily basis, but no bears other then the 2 Glenn saw. Thane’s trail cams on a few of the baits indicated movement was taking place at any time from 10pm to 2am. Anyway, we all had a great time and some needed R&R.

How can you go wrong with a view like this from your back door every day!

Bear Hunt Update 6…

May 15 2008

Well… I missed updating the site a few days, but here is the story. It has been sunny, but very windy. Tuesday night Glenn had 2 bear come into his bait, but passed on them both. He had video, so we verified our source! Last night no bears were seen on the baits, but my grandfather almost got a crack at one on the road. Yesterday we went over to Deer Island with Thane and Jimmy and Jimmy dove for oysters for us. We ended up getting about 20 Lbs. in 1 and 1/2 hours. Not too bad! Today we headed over to Big Norms to pick up Bob Bob’s bear and Jimmy Son’s Pig. (See Below) More Pictures are available in the Pictures section under Bear 2008.

Tonight the wind looks like it will die down and a few of us are going to change stands. Hopefully we will have some bear pictures to post on Friday!

Bear Hunt Update 5…

May 13 2008

Monday was a nice day except for the wind.  The temps have been around 70 during the day and then they go down to about 38 at night.  The problem last night was that we had a steady wind with gusts up to 30 mph.  So, no bears were seen.  We did get a chance to site in the guns and make sure they were still on after the trip up.

NY Opener…

May 04 2008

After a interesting start to the NY season… (call Shawn or me for the details)! Shawn took the double below

Shawn: I set up unknowingly under a roost tree with two long beards and 4 hens. At sunup they flew down. I shot the one at 10 yards and the other at 20 yards. The first had a 10 1/2 inch beard and 1 1/8 inch spurs and weighed about 20 pounds the second had a 10 1/4 inch beard and 1 inch spurs but weighed more at close to 23 pounds. Three tags and all filled on opening days of two states. It doesn’t get much better than that. Once again I have Justin to thank for use of both properties!

Well… That was a great end to the turkey season. Next week I am packing up my gear and heading North to Canada for an Archery Black Bear hunt. Oh Yea… my bow cam is in and will be rolling!
