Who all is going up to camp for bear season? I'll be up with some family members and maybe a buddy for the season, but I'm also going up a few days next week to do some scouting...although I already know there's a bunch of bears in my area. Good excuse to go up for a few days (Tues. night through Friday).
Since I'm putting an addition on my place - starting construction in March - I still have some trees and shrubbery to move -- and a couple more things to plant in other areas. Anyone who has seen my place knows about the landscaping I have done (probably the best landscaped place in Potter County!!!)...
Definately going up. Has become a tradition at our camp to be up for it. Will probably go up Thursday and hunt that night and Friday with the bow before saturday.
Saturday morning at camp I was walking into my stand with no flashlight bc of the moon and I noticed something out ahead of me 30 yds but I didnt remember a log there behind the stand. So I got out my flashlight and shined it only to see two beady little eyes starring back at me...
I shut the light off and walked back to the path and around out onto the food plot to the stand instead.
Once I got into my stand I checked my phone to see the time and my dad had texted me saying he was at the base of his stand and a sow and two cubs came running from my direction 20 yds beside him...
We see plenty of bear in archery but that sent chills up my spine!
Might be heading to Potter.
Plans are up in the air, have a lot going on right now.
Between archery and gunning season have 3 trips to Potter planed, but still trying to cram in a Bear Hunt If I'm not divorced by then.(lol)
Bear season is the highlight of the year at my camp. My little camp only sleeps 4 comfortably the way the bedrooms are arranged. I have two guys that are begging me to sleep in recliners or on the floor in the living room because they hear we have such a good time up there during bear season. One of the guys doesn't even hunt. I think the original 4 have decided to allow one more guy so we are not bumping into each other for 5 days. November 23rd can't come soon enough.
