Bear Fever

I have already punched my tag for 2012 and im still looking forward to getting my bait going for my dad this fall more than I am my own hunting season. This stuff is addictive! Am I the only one that enjoys it this much?

Anything less than overkill is underachievement!

Re: Bear Fever

Mike I'm with you but I suspect I'll get cured if a nice bull comes my way this fall.

Re: Bear Fever

Bears are as good as it gets! Offered the choice, grand slam sheep, or bears, I'd take the bears, Hell I'd shoot Ling Ling, Ping Pong or whatever their calling pandas this week. Even a Koala would look neat on the wall (I know they aren't bears). Bait, hounds, berry patches you name it bears just do it for me. Even someone else's bear I'm still stoked about yours and Elkaholics success, I'm still showing your pictures to my bear hunting buddies. I thought about driving down just to shake your hand. I jumped around the living room hooting and hollering when I saw the picture, and flared up my arthritis. I still need to call one, and I'll work on that again this fall. So yeah I like it a bit too!

Re: Bear Fever

Ya, bears are adicting! Like Copenhagen, & good single malt Scotch like Oban. Just somethin you try & instantly fall in love with.

Your lucky tho bud. You get to bait em'.
Id be so spoiled by that, that Hells Canyon wouldn't look near as appealing.... Well, ok, ya it would, but Id still like to try baiting once. It'd be so cool to know every bear in your bait area via trail cam, & have a known sized object to compare them to for field judging. That'd just be freakin Awesome!
I'm jealous!

Lol, I'm with you! I'd definitely drop Ping Pong.

I was diagnosed with Bear Fever in '09 and I don't think I'll ever be cured. Same goes for my dad. I don't think he even cares about elk, deer or antelope very much any more. All he talks about is next bear season!

Re: Bear Fever

We cant bait or use dogs in B.C, but the spot and stalk up here is unreal. Every fall we hunt over the corn and if something doesnt go as planned, in the corn! Now thats a rush! Bear was the first big game animal I shot, and Ive shot a fair more bear than everthing else combined. Cant beat it!
