Re: Who's going black bear hunting this spring

I saw a big boar Friday!!! 225 yards off the road. Gun was unloaded, cased and crammed behind the seat. The bear was just off a main road on private property. I watched it for 20 minutes. Come to find out, I could have taken the bear from that property................... Oh well,

Went out Saturday evening for a few hours, No bears but lots of Blacktails and Elk.

Nice to hear there is a few out already. Go get 'em. I doubt that there are bears out here yet though. It'll be another month before it's good.

Any body try this?



Bear Crack Recipe Ingredients: Marshmallows, powdered Jell-O mix, syrup and
granular sugar

1) Fill up a decent-sized pan, one that your wife or girlfriend is not going
to need back I might add, about halfway with marshmallows. Dump in a half a
package of powdered Jell-O mix; add a quart of syrup and a pound or so of
sugar.

2) Set pan on a single burner propane stove and bring to a slow boil. Stir
occasionally
while letting the Bear Crack boil. The sweet smelling smoke emitted from
this concoction then wafts through the timber and pulls all those big bear
in like they were on a string. This is some good stuff and once the bears
are hooked, look out. Sometimes there is very little you can do to keep them
from coming to the bait whether youíre ready for Ďem or not.

3) Just for those special occasions, we also have a separate pan to fry up
some bacon while at the bait and then dip it in the Bear Crack. We called
this candied bacon and oh boy, we only do this if there is somebody
available to serve sentry. Those big olí ornery boars can only stand so much
before they just up and decide to crash the baiting party.

4) After the Bear Crack has boiled for about five minutes or so, we dump the
liquefied mixture onto dog food, nearby stumps or anything else in the area
that we donít mind whether it gets torn up or not.



To speed up my baits or if I don't have the time to set up bait ahead of time, I'll fire up my coleman stove with two pounds of bacon in a pan and let it simmer. The bears come walking in with their noses in the air, looking for the tasty bacon. If no bears come that evening, I dump the bacon and grease on the ground or a stump. Next night do it again, same time same thing. I've never went more than two nights without having one investigate. Good location is important though.

The only problem with it is if a sow with cubs comes in, or a smaller boar you don't wish to shoot. I make noice and scare them away, so they don't destroy my coleman. And I dig a hole to put my stove in, so I don't start a fire.

I haven't seen anything yet, I think I may give it a few more weeks before hitting it hard.
