Shaping up to be an interesting year...

Postby Stykshooter » Mon Jul 17, 2017 6:33 pm

I have been setting and pulling some trail cameras over the last couple weeks. Some interesting photos showing up.

This guy ought to be pretty decent when our season opens in October.

This is a nice bear. He is the one that ultimately destroyed this stealthcam that took this photo.

We have several photos of this bear with the white "V" on his chest. I don't know if he is just old or is sickly. Doesn't look as healthy as the others.

Yep..... breeding season is on down here.

I've seen my fair share of bears, both alive and dead over the years. I've never seen one like this. We've gotten three photos of him during the daylight in the last week or so. That bear in front of him is a 200 pounder. This boar is monstrous with the biggest head I've ever seen on any bear. I've seen several P & Y bears, but this is the first that I am sure is B & C. He has to have a 20" plus skull.

Are you going to spend some time on him?

I'm kind of planning on inviting him to the campfire at Baltimore.

Those are outstanding trail cam pictures! Gee Whiz! What a boar. I hope you get a crack at that rascal.

I haven't stood over any dead bears but even I know that is a BIG BEAR.. ;)

Funny thing..... Those "Marines" know where that camera is, and they don't seem too interested in retrieving a bear from up there either.

We're old.....and smart enough to make several trips ;)

I bet we could eat a right good portion of it before dragging it out.........
