Most trapping up north occurs when the bears are sleeping.

Last years shed measured 72”. If he gets lucky this year we’ll see how much he’s grown or lost, lol. Those pics put him near where he “should” be hanging out come Sept. There’s a big ragweed field he practically lives in that makes his direction of travel so unpredictable. Last year my son got lucky and found his most consistent trail and got to eyeball him in person and that’s when he decided to give him one more year. It’s always a gamble letting one walk. Someone else could shoot him, he could get hit by a vehicle, or even suffer some sort of injury. But when you catch them on camera a few months before season it gets you excited and planning stand sites!

Problem existed b4 we started hunting that property 3.5 years ago (Turner County). It continues. We've killed only 21 hogs in that time. I could've killed 100+ alone .......but I was either turkey hunting or after a mature buck.....so no unnecessary shooting.

Most of the bears are denned up when most of the trapping occurs. This was an issue with our September and October wolf trapping season, but I used no bait or food lures. Only lures I used early season were gland lures and pee post/scat sets and blind sets. That alleviated the problem for me, I know a couple guys who just figure turning bears out of traps is the price of doing business but I prefer to avoid them. With small traps for smaller animals if the are anchored solid they will generally just pull out, but any trap that will reliably hold a wolf will hold a bear.

Gotcha, didn’t know if they were as curious as deer or not. I’m with you, that’s one problem I’d prefer not to have to deal with!!
