I walked into my main bait site yesterday to check it out and found tracks of a bear that traveled thru a few days before,

definitely a good sign!!

back in today with bait and fingers crossed

Had my 1 and only bait hit early last week and have sat on it a few times already,

Had a bald eagle come in and feed off a pig carcass and a partridge strutting in front of the stand

Nice to see

Peepers are out and loud in the beaver pond 80 yds above the stand

saw bears crossing the hill 2x but they never paid the bait any attention but were hitting it at night

Last night at 6:30 had one circle me and then come in and then leave for 1/2 hour then back in for more sweets

decided to pass

I'm guessing he will be back.

Great looking fur

all black with no "V"

I think he was around 200lbs.....maybe Monday I'll pull the trigger

Or maybe like last spring i'll watch and not shoot at all

Hi guys I'm new here to this site but love to hunt and fish, I got a couple of stands up in hopes to lure a decent spring bear in, so far just some smalls in but theres plenty of them out there so I'm biding my time

No sorry, took a couple pictures but didn't turn out with it being dark after I got him out of the woods and I'm not happy with the pictures the next day.

He looks pretty rough even though he has a great pelt.

I should have taken more time to take pictures, I'll do better next time,lesson learned

My buddy plans on hunting from my stand but it hasn't been hit since I took this one.

my guess is with a huge supply of grasses,dandelions and fiddle heads available they are giving dead pigs and sweets a pass.
