    FYI I rode with Scott a few times cause I used to like to hear the beagles run. Highly addictive try it at your own risk!

    I like to think I'm in decent shape and can bushwhack with the best of em, but I learned that no matter how bad one thinks they are, they cannot keep up with a 400 lb bear in a cedar swamp and a few hounds. C'est impossible.

    One day of hound bear hunting was the most physically strenuous day of hunting in my life (even topped dragging 2 elk out in the same day) - mind you, that day was a particularly busy day in the bear woods though. Anyone that claims otherwise is ignorant to the sport.

    Hound hunters are lazy, drive around all day drinking beer letting their dogs do the work.

    As opposed to the hardworking, bust-ass, stand hunter who kills his bear while its head is in a bucket, or hole, or under a log?
    Stand hunters are lazy, lay around all day, hunt only the last hour of daylight, chest thumpers.
    Unless you catch a bear with your bare hands and choke it to death, you're using some advantage. Hounds or bait, everybody is cheating.
    Your opinion has been noted, I'd appreciate it if you'd troll somewhere else.

    Total sarcasm. Just the funny stereotype I hear and laugh about. I run bear with hounds. I've never met a bait sitter or tree squatter that could keep up with me.

    That does not bother me one bit if it is treed on my land. Nothing like hears the hounds treeing be it squirrels or bear. I even give them permission to shot it and if possible to get my tractor to it I would haul it out for them

    I know you were just kidding but I really did used to think like that. Not that they were drinking beer necessarily, but that hound hunting was too easy, and that anyone could walk up to a tree and shoot a bear. Thought like that until I tried it, changed my tune in a hurry. One of the toughest hunts I've ever been on, and the amount of work that leads up to the hunt is amazing.

    I haven't looked into a hound hunt yet, I need to get some info from the DNR on the rules for guys with a participation license to be my guide. My tag will be through the Tribe. I don't want to run into legal issues for the guide.
