Oklahoma Black Bear is in the Books #archery

This hunt started several months ago when I secured permission to hunt a small tract in SE Oklahoma. Fast forward to labor day weekend and I started my bait with 300 lbs of corn and 5 gallons of molasses. I hung a camera and left. The next weekend I cleared a circle around the barrel and cut shooting lanes from two different trees situated for a North and a South wind. The northern tree was 12 yards and the southern tree was 14 yards. Then every Saturday I would drive 3 1/2 hours and refill the barrel and check the camera. I always got bear pictures and the occasional yotte.

Two weeks into it I began to mix dog food, and each week I increased the ratio until I had them on a diet of molasses covered Old Roy. I noticed they were eating the dog food and leaving the corn. Then last Friday I filled the barrel and checked the camera. Still bears, infact I had seven different bears. One of the two biggest was ear tagged and coincidentally he was the first to give me a picture. He along with other both stood taller than the 55 gallon bait barel. They were the target bears.

Season opener was Tuesday so I arrived Monday Afternoon with a 50# bag of dog food and two more gallons of syrup. I pulled the card and topped off the bait and stood the bait barel upright. Hung my climber in the south wind tree and left.

On Tuesday October 1st, I made my way into the bait sight at the first hint of light and quietly made my climb up the tree. Once I was settled in I checked my phone and it was 6:44 am. About an half hour or so later I heard something to my left. I knew it was not a squirrel, to slow of movement. I first thought it sounded like a coon. As I watched that direction I saw a large black object…BEAR!

He was about 25-30 yards out and still in the thick stuff so I quietly stood up and readied my bow by taking it from the bowholder and hooking up my release. About then the bear passed through a small opening leading to the bait. I saw ear tags. No doubt it was it was one of the two target bears.

He made his way to the opening and stepped into the opening I had cut around the bait site. He was quartering towards me so I had to let him turn. He was between me and the barrel and as he started to slowly lumber around, I carefully came to full draw. He stopped with his leg back and I hesitated to shoot. About then he started to take a step and as soon as his leg moved forward I took the shot.

He growled at the impact, done a 180, snapped at the arrow, and ran back the direction he came. I could hear him running through the dry leaves and I heard a crash followed by heavy gasp and gurgling sounds. Then more leaves thrashing and silence. After a moment of disbelief I composed myself and returned my bow to the holder and checked the time. 7:19 am. My bear hunt had lasted thirty five minutes. I waited until 7:40, clumb down, took my climber from the tree and got it ready to go. I then followed a great blood trail straight to the bear.

Where he fell was in a bad place but a few hours later I was checking him in. He weighs 500 lbs and was exactly seven foot long. I’m having to wait for the taxidermist to get the skull cleaned before I can get any grasp on the score.

Checking on spring bear carcass (video) #archery

Went for a day hunt a couple weeks ago, my son didn’t tag along on this one so the camera kept me company. Hiked up to check on what was left of my spring bear while I was up there and managed to finally locate a proper water source so I don’t have to pack in gallons of water or hike out and back in whenever I run low on multiday hunts. Also went and checked a trail cam that I found to have been moved by a bear and left in test mode by a real genius…I’m sure we’ve all had those moments where we want to throw ourselves down the mountain lol, needless to say I had nothing on the card. Came to full draw on the biggest bear I’ve ever seen about 100 yards away from there this spring, he had an amazing reddish brown coat and scars all over his face but he saw me draw back and took off at mach 3…would have been awesome to confirm if he’s still around or not but I re-set the cam and we’ll see what intel it gathers next time I’m up. Thanks for watching!

Alaska dad, son sentenced for killing mother bear, ‘shrieking’ newborn cubs #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

An Alaska man and his son were sentenced Tuesday over the poaching of a black bear mother and her two cubs in their den after they were caught by a nearby research camera.

Andrew Renner, 41, was sentenced to three months in jail and his son Owen Renner, 18, received 30 days of suspended time in the April 2018 killings. Each was ordered to pay $ 1,800 in restitution, with the elder Renner owing an additional $ 9,000 fine, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

The father and son skied to the site on Esther Island in Prince William Sound, where the son killed the mother bear in front of her two cubs. The father turned his rifle point-blank on the newborns "shrieking in the den," prosecutors said. The son shot the sow bear twice as she slept, they said, according to the paper.

A motion-activated camera set up outside the den as part of a bear study by the U.S. Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game captured the carnage.

Assistant Attorney General Aaron Peterson told the court it was the "most egregious bear cub poaching case his office has ever seen."

“What we saw is that there were two bear cubs that were completely defenseless and were shot at point-blank range,” Peterson said.

The father was convicted of eight counts related to the illegal killing and transporting of the bears, and the falsifying of the sealing certificate. His hunting license has been revoked for 10 years, while his son’s license has been suspended for two years, according to the Daily News.

Took a bear the other day #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Edit: ignore the *. I wrote on a message pad on my phone these appeared when I copied it out.

Guess I got a bear this year. Missed a really nice 6×6 elk. Couldnt say exactly how big as i never got a great look but 300+ for sure. I bugled once as i got in the area and had bull respond 400 yards off.* Moved close to where he was.* 2nd bull sounded off and was coming in to him. I never bugled with exception to the initial one. Bull came by about 50 yards, I thought it was 40 so I missed. After i missed, He just trotted 60 yards or so across the sage then kept bugling.* Then he crossed a small bump in the terrain.* Ran up once he disappeared to see if I could get another chance but he moved up into trees qith heavy deadfall and there was 5 mins of light left.* Figured this was his home range and he would stay in the area.*

While sitting on the small rise I noticed a black shape moving below me a 100 -120 yards off.* Reminded me of deer when the light goes when Tree stand hunting.* Realized it was a bear.* At first i was content to watch him slow walk my way but started looking bigger as it got close.* Figured I should get in position in case I wanted to give it a go.* Easier to be prepared and say no rather than wish you had been ready.* Moved down about 10 yards.* Amazed it didn’t see me or smell me.* It was down wind and the lone tree between us had limbs high enough I probably wouldn’t have to duck to go under it.* When it got behind the trunk I drew back.* Definitely looked bigger than my initially has thought.* Took a 450-500lb 14 year 20" bear a couple years back (first time shooting a bear, yeah lucky) and thought maybe this guy was equal or bigger.*

Stopped him at 30 yards with a light cow mew.* Arrow hit looked ok but hard to say as they are just black balls or fur.* Was a bit nervous as he ran into thick stuff but I did hear him wheeze several times in the sane place before it got quiet.* Gathered stuff, etc.* Gave him a while.* Didn’t walk far and found him.* He was somewhat hidden and i went slowly confirming blood and used my Leopold LTO looking forward to reduce the possibility to walking up on an big injured bear by myself 3.5 miles from the truck.** Worked good and saw him fairly quick.* Hit was tight on the shoulder.*

Went to camp a mile away, ate dinner, grabbed what needed and packed llamas accordingly.* Skinned him, pulled the quarters, backstraps, etc.* Got back to camp at 5:19 am after put meat in plastic bags to sit in 38 degree creek.* I typically hunt solo so it’s just doing the work. Fell asleep at 545 and got up at 930.* Hiked out. Made the 3 hour drive to fort Collins CDOW, took him by my office and put it in deep freezer and turned around drove back, hiked back in but didn’t get back in time to hunt my spot.* Trying traverse 7 miles and drive for 6 hours + gas, dropping meat off and 30 minute inspection and do it in less 8.5 hours just wasn’t possible not matter how hard I pushed. I couldn’t quite make it to where i knew elk were for certain so i opted to hunt on the way to camp.* No luck.* The bear in some respects kinda buggered up the remaining few days of my elk season.

I took picture solo with phone,so its as food as I could do propping it on a stick 7 or 8 feet away and a headlamp for light. A 16.9oz coke for reference on front paw.

Now trying to decide what to do with it.* It was a bit smaller than had thought.* Hide, 4 quarters, head, and meat weighed 175 lbs.* I would guess live weight about 300 maybe 325.* Good head and 4.5" pads.* Not overly fat more lanky and long lived I felt.* Quick estimate is 6 to 8 years old.* Not sure what to with it now.* I split it up back and didn’t really want a rug.* Already got the other bear coming life size so seems silly to do a second smaller one.* Thoughts?* Not a fan of 1/2 mounts coming out a wall at all so scratch that idea.

Side note, took this bear less than 0.3 miles from a unique stand of trees bears I have climbed over at least 15 years. See a previous thread I started a week or so ago.

Best Wisconsin Bear outfitter #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

So I have been building points in WI for a bear bow hunt in their non-dog areas, which sounds weird I know to have to build points in Wisconsin but look it up before you comment (it takes a good while). With this long of a wait I am wanting to use the best outfitter I can find in the zone. Anyone have any experience with a good outfitter that has a proven track record for big bruins? I have been blessed to take a few bears before and have a special place in my heart for the coastal bears on the Quinualt tribal grounds but really want to try hard for a special bear from WI.
