Well it's official, Jeff has more ruffed grouse on his property than bears. ;D
We took a quick walk around and put up a few just in a 100yrds. :)

I flushed one yesterday out of some alders. All I see is singles mostly. I did flush a couple on the woodlot last week though. They are a lot wilder around here than in the back woods. Years ago I remember huge flocks, a couple of clutches would come together in the fall and form a huge flock 12-16 birds. It really was not much sport to shooting those back woods birds. They'd only fly up maybe 10-15 feet in a tree and you could just pick them off. The rest wouldn't fly, they would just freeze with their necks outstretched and head tilted to side looking at ya. ::)
Move'n on.

 We had a momma bear and 4 cubs at our gamecam last week.
I wonder if she had all of them or adopted a couple.

It's possible they are all hers to. I've seen them with four a couple times here on the farm. Seen a lot of momma's with 3 cubs. Lots to eat, big families. ;D

Jon, that is a perfect pic!

It is deer season and my nephew has already brought me two.  I was going to work in the shop on this dreary cloudy day, but I better cut up and grind venison.

Bear Bites Hunter.

Sometimes you get the bear; sometimes the bear gets you. A bow hunter was attacked in his tree stand in Emmet County by an adult bear and three cubs. The attack may have been prompted by the odor of fried food from a party the hunter attended just before taking to the woods. He was treated for bite wounds to his leg.

Note to Jeff:

Attend a party before you bear hunt!

You can if you are bear hunting with a bow.

Ron, I think something is fishy about this whole bear attack story. I've been following it on T.V. and I think there is more to it then this guy is letting on. I kinda think this fellow had to make up some stories to hide that he may have been baiting for deer.  What he describes just seems far fetched.  To top it off, he's to scared to get down, but calls his girl friend back to get him when she comes looking for him?  I guess a good way to make a break for it if the bears decide to eat the girl friend.

Here are some links to the story.

Nope, no permits. We do have bear though. I have a few trail cam pics.

You can if you are bear hunting with a bow.


To clarify this is only because firearm and archery season are all run together. So it is your choice which method to use or you can carry both. The thing is if you are not carrying under the CPL you need to wear Orange while having both methods in the stand with you.
There is one management area hunt that has an archery only season, there you can not carry a firearm while bow hunting.

On Sunday or Monday morning a 180-200 lb black bear was struck on the Juniper highway. I imagine it was a logging truck. Looked like a freight train went over it.
Move'n on.
