I am on the learning curve of Trail cams, Had a photo of a bigger bear and deleted it somehow, then I set up on the side of the trail, rather then pointing down it, so they got out of frame too fast, here is one where you can just see a bears hind end in the lower left. LOL Service berries will be ripe by the 15th or 20th then I expect activity to go way up. I found a great stand of big Aspen that look over about a 50'x100' berry patch, but it does me no good if there isn't a bear working it near daylight & in season.I have the same game camera. Works great and the videos are excellent.
Well, I think as long as the actual hunt is with traditional muzzleloaders using traditional hunting methods, I think the use and sharing of trail cam pictures is ok. By your logic, one could not take pictures at all.Correct me if I'm wrong but this forum is for traditional Muzzleloading hunting, so unless someone can show some videos of Daniel Boones or Simon Kenton's trail camera's we should stick to traditional ways of hunting.
The September season, I know a great spot a few miles away that looks down on a watering hole, but the shots are 200 yds + and I only hunt bear with front suffers. The basin has two year round creeks so water holes won't do it Though if I can find the feeding grounds and it is still hot out they will lay up by the water in the aspen. Or so I hope. I'd be damn skinny if all I ate was bear I killed, but I sure like pitting myself against them. I work out of town all next week so by the time I get back Service berries will be starting to attract the bears. Lot easier to see what they are up to when they poop a great big purple pile of seeds every 100 yards or soIs your tag for the muzzleloader season or the month long September rifle season? I’ve found sitting water holes to be productive.
Tom that looks like a heck of a nice bear. any idea on the size? I always get a photo of myself at each camera set, that way I have something to gauge the bear by, sometimes they can be really hard to estimate. at least for me.
Good luck with that. I have at least 3 bears on my 150 hunting piece but there seems to be no pattern as to when they stop at the feeders (corn). I have photos at midnight, daybreak, evening and even noon.I found a great stand of big Aspen that look over about a 50'x100' berry patch, but it does me no good if there isn't a bear working it near daylight & in season.
The forum owner, administrator and moderators accept the fact that we are living in a modern age so some leeway is given when it comes to some modern things.Correct me if I'm wrong but this forum is for traditional Muzzleloading hunting, so unless someone can show some videos of Daniel Boones or Simon Kenton's trail camera's we should stick to traditional ways of hunting.
