    Congrats on a great bear Hunter1457!!!:)

    Well everythings about packed and we are leaving Sat morning. Hunt starts Sun am. My buddy and I both have Baldwin tags. Scouted hard for sites and after getting rid of 2 of them we have 4 very active baits right now. My private land barrel spot had 6-8 diff bears at all times of the day and night but as of last weekends card pull one bear has claimed it as his own. He is there most of the day and night and chases away all other bears. I have video of him sleeping right next to the barrel...:) Might have a hard time slipping into the stand Sun morn.... That is a 55 gallon poly drum. Hole is pointed to the right of the tree for good broadside shots. Hope he is still hanging out.

    I think you'll know when you see that one. Won't be much to think about.

    We are 2 for 3 at our camp in the Newberry unit. I'm the only one left. Had a chance Wednesday night but stand creaked a bit when I shifted to draw and he bolted. He came back but wouldn't commit to the bait. Other 2 hunters tagged out on a 150# or so boar and a monster 320# per the scale at the feed mill. Took us almost 5 hours last night to get the big boy out of the woods. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1505419678.079490.jpg

    My buddy just got back from the Thurs bait run and said all 4 have been hammered again with no bait left. This has been the case every time we go bait. We will bait again about noon on Sat then slip into our stands Sun morn...
    Tomorrow is going to be a looong day at work!!

    You look like you're running a fever, I think you're coming down with something. Better call in sick tomorrow just to be safe.

    My wife got her bear (her 2nd one) last night. Skinned and quartered it last night and put the meat in the fridge. Have to go check him in at the DNR and then drop the hide off at the taxidermist this morning. Will post story and photos later.

    I do have a couple of trail cam photos of what we believe to be the same bear from Wednesday night. 215# live weight (male). He came in at 6:38 PM on Thursday night (Sept 14th). Carney unit in Dickinson County.
