Who wants to go bear hunting?

  1. I am seriously thinking of getting back into the groove in baiting bears. But I don't want to do it like I used to.

    I am looking for four or five hunters to partner with. Each hunter sets up and maintains a bait site. But all of the hunters in this group can hunt all of the sites. Instead of having just one or two sites to hunt you have five or more. Each site is on a rotation....keeping it fair to all. Hunters can trade sites out of rotation if for some reason they can't use their site on an assigned day. Some of these sites will be a good distance apart. Making it difficult for some hunters to get to them.

    Sound interesting?

    I'd love to, but that's a bit of a haul to Houlton. How many times a week does a bait need checked? That's hopefully going to be a busy time of year for me, but I'd love to get a shot at one with a longbow.
     

  3. Yea too far from you to me...but you can start a group in your area and use the idea.
    I feel that if more of us were out hunting bears ourselves and they tried some more of that referendum crud.....we would be even more apt to fight for our rights.
    Besides bear meat is great...if you don't eat it..I'll take any fresh bear you don't want.
     
  4. Guess I hunt alone this year......wife is scared of bears. But if your up my way.......I'ld put you in bow range if I can find some sites to bait.

    AB,
    I'd love to bowhunt for one, if I end up with any time open around then, I'll let ya know. And if ya get down this way or over around the Forks and wanna flyfish, let me know.
     
  6. I would love to bear hunt with ya sometime. But I just about gave up on deer hunting for the next couple years until all my kids are out of diapers and things settle down where I am not needed 24/7

    As for flyfishing, I would love to go up to the forks on a weekend getaway and find my rhythm. :wink:
     
  7. My wife is an excellant babysitter........if there is a will there is a way....
