  • So...????

    ... Where are all the bears early birds? Almost 10 days since the opener...

    There is no such thing as an early bird If you put bait out at the opener it will sit untouched for close to a month. Then you'll waste a lot of time and gas and get discouraged. There are more black bear still in the den than out of the den right now. I'll put my baits out the weekend of May 14-15. Maybe, just maybe, I'd bump it up to May 7-8 if I hear good reports of bears down out of the mountains.

      Went out to my bait in 14a today to finish making my ground blind and.... Nothing yet. It's only been there since the 18th. But I do have a very good reason to be an early bird besides just getting out of the house early and enjoying the woods. The early birds get to their spots first and won't have anybody else stealing them plus I getta put a little mud on the tires.

        Im with you yoda. Had mine out since the 16th. Checked on the 20th and 22nd. Nothing yet. Im in 14A as well. Put out early because we found a great spot and did not want anyone else to take it.
        Also get to ride, which is nice.
        Going back tomorrow (27th) and May 1st. Will let you know.

          Hey, if you want to get your bait out early, more power to ya. Getting set up in a great spot you found before anyone else sets up there can be a bit of an illusion though... When some jackass sets his bait out 150 yards from you and there's nothing that can be done about it.

              I set mine up last year on May 2nd and first bears hit it May 8th. I went over and set same spot up again this past weekend....a week earlier then last year. Lots more snow in the woods this spring then last still. This is in 16B.

                  Can't see getting out to the woods as a waste of anything, let alone time and gas. If you get out early (we did) and set things up, get to know a new area, and have a blast doing it... well, the worst day out there beats the BEST day at work.

                    Fair enough, I can't argue with that.

                      Probably head out in about week and half when my hunting partner gets back from the slope. Still a bit of snow out there yet but should be somewhat accessible by than.

                          I'm running my boat over to Gary to have my battery box welded back in place today. Not sure if it will be done by then, but either way I'll be there Monday.

                            I admire the enthusiasm and totally understand staking claim to a spot. But after my little fiasco 2 years ago, I won't be baiting on the opener ever again. I picked a bad spot and had a 55 gallon thing of bait and scent sit for two months.... never had bear one come to it.

                            And I plan on being somewhere this year where it's not Hope road 2.0
