Thread: Brown bears at my site

  1. #1

    Default Brown bears at my site

    Got a grizz and her cubs at my bait station, no black bear yet. I got lots of pics on my trail cam they were there 3 nights. I let the barrell go emptyfor a week then rebaited. Anyone know of any other way of getting rid of em (leagly) ! Thanks

    Here's one we call Magilla Gorilla. Sorry for the stick in his face ~ it obviously wasn't there when we set up...
    We're pretty sure he blew his plug at our station. There is a 5-foot diamiter green grass slick and a green/brown clump near the barrel.

    I was just looking at pictures this weekend of a friends bait station. One picture had 5 grizzlies feeding at his station. He quit baiting for a week and now hes got a nice black coming in.

    Stop feeding the grizzlies worked for him.

    I was interested to see how quickly [usually within the hour] and frequently [every day browns and blacks feed at our site] the black bears came in after the brownies left. Even after ol' scar-back sow slept for 3.5 hours at the site ~ black bear returned within an hour of her leaving! It is like they're waiting in the wings for their chance. Of course brownies are hogs and will clean out a barrel in short notice.
    Check this picture out. It's a little hard to see but this green grass swath of poo appears to be where one of the brownies blew it's winter hibernation plug. Never seen anything like this in 7 years of baiting ~ I swear the slick is approaching 5 feet in diameter.
