This year I was lucky enough to draw a tag for area 51. My son Bobby was not so lucky. We were forced to bait both area 51 and the no-quota area, we started baiting on the 14th of August and were surprised at the amount of activity that we had in both areas!
We continued to bait all of our sites twice a week and had cameras on all of the bait sites. Again we were surprised at the number of bears that we had on each site! (Some had more than 10 bears) From those pictures we made a “HIT LIST” Of bears that we wanted to target.
Bobby’s first day was windy but the temp. was nice and cool. he arrived at his stand about 2:30 pm. within minutes he had several small bears on the bait, But Bobby knew there were bigger bears on this bait and passed these bears up. shortly after that one of his “target” bears showed up! After about 10 minutes of circling the bear finally comitted to the bait and Bobby Put a 3 blade rage powered by his matthews Drenlin thru his heart and lungs, the bear only went 16 yards!
My bear “Volkswagon” made one daylight appearance before we ran out of camera light. I am holding out for him and hope to be able to share my hunt with you!
I would like to say congrats to my son and hunting partner Bobby. Great job!
