    There is one thing that beginning bear hunters should understand. Their bodies are telling them to put on fat for the winter. Bait is not going to do that. It's just a treat, like ice cream is for us. They can't live on it and their bodies know it. If there isn't any natural food in the woods...

    I asked about your bear area because I noticed your post on black bear hunting. My type of bear hunting is never long range. I'm talking maybe 40 yards at the most. We ran 20 - 30 baits along the Mississippi river back when my Dad was in better shape. We've shot a lot of nice bears over the...

    Hi from Minnesota

    Welcome to LRH. I currently pay taxes in Carver county.:D Spend Aug & Sept near Deer River trying to fool black bears. I mostly lurk in LRH background myself - but occasionally surface for some air. Great community here. Very impressive range of information. Definitely Long Range...

    Black Bear self defense handgun/rifle

    I've been a black bear guide for 20 years or so. 99% of the time they quietly avoid contact with people. Very few things will tighten the old sphincter quite as fast as standing a few feet from one of those critters that is NOT wary of you. Several close encounters come to mind... I quickly...

    How To Clean Your Rifle Scope By Gary Garnett

    Thanks for an informative article. I appreciate the hands on testimonial. I'll be picking up an outdoorsmans cleaning kit right away. My scopes get a LOT of weather and pine woods action. I use scope covers and the rain guard covers to insure that I don't get any balsam sap on my lenses. Of...

    Need some advice toward my 270 upgrade

    Thanks for all of the input last year toward my 270 deer rifle upgrade. The Jewell trigger was a great improvement. I was consistently hitting 2" at 200 yards at the range right before the deer opener. Knocked over 2 nice South Dakota 10 pointers last November. One at 160 yds and one at 320 yds...

    Bubble level??

    Sinclair offers an anti cant device that I use out in the South Dakota coulee country. gun) Nice product. It mounts right on your scope. The newer model locates the bubble so that it rests on the side of the scope. - Anti Cant Device 30mm - black Midway has the same one available.

    Bear Scent & Lure

    We use anise (the confectioners scent added to black licorice). It's available in liquid form that works well in a squirt bottle. Also liquid smoke. Another trick is to pull a can of bacon grease up a tree and tip it over so it runs down the tree trunk. All of these scents linger in the air for...

    Need some advice toward my 270 upgrade

    270 cal is my preferred deer cartridge. I deer hunt the extreme NE corner of the South Dakota coulee country near Sisseton. We walk for miles each and every day for most of the month of November. This will continue to be my daily carry deer rifle so I want the weight to remain below 10 pounds. I...
