Thread: Bears stopped coming???

  1. #1

    Default Bears stopped coming???

    Bears always came to a certain stand in 14 off the parks a few miles, this year they started really late. A game cam showed brown and black started coming and now nothing comes. This seems strange. This spot has been productive for years even with ATVs often passing by and campers shooting and carrying on. Maybe noise bothered them this year but not before? Maybe killed elsewhere (but no other hunters are close) ??? Moved on and left the food? There looks like no evidence of tampering and it is very hard to find, another stand a mile away reports no hits yet. Two weeks track started appearing everywhere, but now no new ones. Should be going through 100 pounds a week and scat everywhere around. Any ideas? Things seem so strange this year.

    The moose are calving right now. Probably chasing them around. They'll come back, they always do.

    Careful there Wilder, LEO may be interested in your use of a telephone in the taking of a game animal. Check page 18 of the regs, under the "YOU MAY NOT" section...

    He shot the bear, not his friend. The text means nothing.

    For his sake, I hope you are right. I was just pointing out that they should be cautious as to how they communicate animal movements while hunting. Using an electronic means can get you in trouble.
