Made the 225 mile round trip after work today to set my first bear bait out. Put out a jet sled full,50lbs corn,80 plus pounds of bagels and donuts plus table scraps from the passed month or two. Had a lot of sign around from bears. I didn't do the journey to my far spot. I did find a small shed antler in between about 10 piles of bear crap. Its small and i for got to take a pice of it.was 2 years old and chewed up bad

I admire your dedication - I live with them, sort of despise them and really not all that motivated to hunt them although I will probably do it with the bow. I don't know why I just can't get jazzed over a bear, but it is what it is. Maybe this bow season will change my mind. 

 

Good luck - you already earned it based on the miles alone!

Yeah when you live with them and see them often there is no thrill in taken one. Don't have way down here often (once in awhile but no season here). I have one I shot years ago with the bow in Canada but would like to have one from the home state.

I will be hunting bear Saturday morning in NY state with my nephew in a spot I got my first bear in 1994. It's a travel route between both states and we have to just hope one travels bye no baiting in NY. The stand location is ideal it's right where hemlocks meet a swamp we are on the ridge where the two come together watching the valley below. From hunting there most times the bears cruise that valley he's going to take his bow.
