-Is the flash on a trail camera bad to use, does it spook the bears?
-How quiet do we have to be in the tree stand? Is this absolutely quiet? What if I want to put a jacket on? What about chewing loudly?
-Do I have to be in a ready position at all times? What if my rifle is leaning against the tree next to me? Is it going to be too much movement once a bear is on station to move that much?
-Weird question, but do you pee off your stand? Is that scent OK at the bait site?
-Where do you do your honey/molasses/baitem907 burns? Is that something you set on the ground prior to climbing in your stand? Do you do it in your stand?
-It's all downhill from my baitstand to the truck. It takes me about 15 minutes to get from the stand to the truck and about an hour for me to get home. If I shoot an bear, is it OK to gut it on site, strap the rest into a heavy expedition sled, and sled out to the truck and then home. That way I can get out of the woods at dark and quarter out the bear in my garage. Is there anything wrong with that?
-If the kill is in your baitsite area, do you leave the guts in the site or do you drag the bear a bit away before gutting it? Will guts bring more brown bears?
-My last question is about late at night. So far, this bear has been coming in at 1145 PM like clockwork. I tried staying out there alone last night and after dark at about 1030 I have to say I was a little nervous about the mile hike out in the dark. I ended up bailing before 11 while there was still the faintest bit of light left for the hike out. I was thinking about going in with my 18 year old and staying late enough to see if we can take that bear. What do you think?
Any help here is appreciated.
