Mh Outdoors Blog Michelle Harmes Feb 18th 2017 One place we put Sweet Surrender is right on the barrel, in 2015 Amy’s bear would plop on her belly and lap up all the paste she could find.

The New Browning Defender 850 with Bluetooth and Wi-fi Connectivity!

  NEW FOR 2017* We are extremely excited for the new Browning Defender 850! As hardcore hunters and Bear baiters we strive to find solid cameras that can provide us with key information about our hunting areas, What time is that bear coming to the bait?   What scent or product is he paying the most attention to?  What direction is he coming from?  All these questions run through our heads each year as we set baits and then return to check our trail cameras,   When season opens we travel to our stands to sit and wait for the

By Nick Hopkins Www.boarmasters.com Bear hunting is extremely challenging,  but is also one of the most adrenaline packed hunting adventures you’ll ever do.  There are many methods and options for pursuing and hunting bears and all provide some great challenges.  I get in conversations every year with people who have never had the chance to hunt bears.  Many of those same people think hunting bear over bait isn’t fair, or not as challenging.  Well I’m here to tell you baiting bear will be one of the most challenging but rewarding hunts you’ll ever do.  I’ve hunted many different animals including

Love for the working dog by Mike Pimentel

Love for the working dog by Mike Pimentel

  LOVE FOR THE WORKING DOG by Mike Pimentel The May sun was blazing down on us as we reached the summit and stepped out onto a big rock out cropping. We sat down to take off our snow shoes which have seemed to hinder us more at times in the soft snow than do us any good. Above the slight breeze and swaying of pines we could hear a slight rumble up canyon in a small basin, it was the hounds! As we strained to hear them better we could start picking out certain dogs and their distinct barks

Bear Hunting for beginners

Bear Hunting for beginners

Bear Hunting Basics Hunting a bear is one of the most exciting types of a game a hunter can go after. Ask any hunter that has hunted bear and they’ll claim the experience is like no other. The actual tracking and stalking of a bear is just as much fun as actually getting one. However, before going on the hunt you’ll need to make sure you follow all hunting safety regulations and hunting laws in that region. You’ll also need to make sure you have the right licenses and permits; not only can you be fined and lose your equipment

What is a “Crib” around a bear bait barrel

What is a "Crib" around a bear bait barrel

>>THE CRIB< A crib around the barrel is a pile or stack of stick, logs brush, etc that forces the bears around the front side of the barrel.  Without a crib we have had several bears sit behind the barrel and reach around the barrel to grab food from the ground or inside the barrel, the crib will keep the bear from doing this.  it also helps protect the bait from small scavengers and birds which eat a lot of food when the bear is not around. Place your barrel, treestand and crib wisely and you’ll get the quartering away

How to build a bear bait barrel

How to build a bear bait barrel

We have had many requests on how we build our bear bait barrels. We decided to drag along the video camera while building this years model. The video below will take you step by step trough our building process. We even answer the age old question, how big should I make the hole! http://youtu.be/3s2cWf9P2HE This year we made the decision to add yet another bar in the bottom of the barrel. Our intentions are to hold the remaining bait as long as we can. In all of our setups we only like to bait once with enough bait to last

Save Maines Bear Hunt

Save Maines Bear Hunt

Save Maine’s Bear Hunt and Management Programs is a campaign to educate Maine voters about the negative impacts of the referendum being proposed by the Humane Society of the United States and Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting which would ban the use of bear baiting, hounding and trapping. The referendum is expected to be placed on the November 2014 ballot. Maine’s bear population has increased over 67% since 1990. This increase requires scientific and biological management of the bear population in order to reduce human-bear conflicts and continue to manage the bear population in the most sustainable manner possible. Fortunately,
