Carney unit. Private land. Over bait. 30-06 at 60 yds. Went a few steps.
Friday night after sunset (Sept. 10th). Saw no other bears. Heard no shots Wed. or Thur. Heard 3 single shots Friday night that could've all been bear hunters.
Lots of standing corn and many, many loaded apple trees in the area. Did not see any berries, but there were probably some left.
I had never hunted Menominee Co. before, but knew that they put up very good deer numbers every year. So I wasn't surprised when we saw many deer driving in to check baits/cameras or into a stand. However, the unbelievable number of turkey hens and poults was amazing.

Great job. Congrats on a nice bear. I’m still waiting for a daylight bear to wander in.

Looks like a dandy bear L & O. Congrats! How much did it weigh? Were you able to hook up with Jacque Piatt?

Medium sized bear. Camera angle makes it look bigger. We did not weigh it that night and haven't heard from the processor yet on the weight.
It's been a couple of years now since you gave me his name. No, but he referred me to another guide and he & family were terrific. Great experience.
