We limit our bear hunters to guarantee each one has a fresh bear site to ensure plenty of bear sightings. We start baiting the sites the first of August to ensure active sites and continue to bait the site every day until the bear is harvested. Bear are plentiful but very smart, sometimes referred to as the black ghost. All our stands are new (within the last 3 years) ladder stands. We recommend you bring your own tree harness and favorite cushion. Comfort is a must to enable you to sit without movement for several hours.
We had a great year with bear over bait.
Ninety One percent (91%) of our bear hunters saw shoot-able bear. Some took one home, some shot at one and others elected not to shoot but 91% had the opportunity. Check out our bear and photo category for great pictures. We had 4 young boys hunting with their father which is great to see (we give families a nice discount). Three of the boys bagged a nice bear and the fourth passed up the first one he saw and let his father shoot it since it was his father’s birthday. This same boy missed a bear on the second day of his hunt.
We also hosted Blaine Anthony and his Bear Whisper team. Their sponsor Ted bagged his bear after only sitting 2 nights and has some nice camera footage that we hope to see on one of the outdoor channels in the near future.
It’s not to early to book your bear over bait hunt for 2013. We will probably only hunt the first 3 weeks in 2013 so get your deposit in to save your spot. We have a couple of deposits in hand already for the first week
Peter Lima from Virginia and his first bear. Peter took the guides recommendations to heart and bagged this big boy on the 4th day at the same stand. Trail cameras proved bear were hitting this site and patience was all that was needed.
