So, after getting my 1st blackie last weekend we lined up a sitter for the kidlet and the dogs/birds and are going to be heading out to my site to try and get the wife her 1st blackie. She has NEVER hunted and I am a bit nervous as to what she will do if we do have a bear come in. I will prob put her in the tree stand and I will sit in the ground blind for that "just in case" situation. So far it seems that unit 16 has picked up a bit and I have some new ultra stank bear grub that will be going into the barrel on friday afternoon as well as about 30lbs of popcorn + dog food/sweet feed. only big issue for us is we are doing everything on foot and that includes dragging the bear out of the field/swamp to the car. I hope she is ready to get broken off on the walk in as it is not a easy walk. But I think it will be a great experience for her even if we dont leave with a critter. If all else fails I may rent a boat and hit up PWS for some hunting.
