Checked the camera yesterday and put out about 80 lbs of donuts... Not much happening as I still have only the little guy comming in on a daily basis... The decent one that showed up in the beginning has not been back... Never made it back to where I ended the season last year as something else came up last week... Gonna try this week...

Damn little boo boo's are following me around... Earlier this week I put out a cam where I finished up last year's hunt in Dec. Had one bear around 150 lbs hit it about 6 hrs. After I put donuts out... Then I had this sequence of small bears come in an argue over who gets the last donut... The bear on the right won... LOL...

Went today to check camera where I shot last year's bear... All the donuts were gone... Fury were you there... Had more bears on cam and no yearlings... Alot of day pics... This guy showed up I think Fri. Night... He's maybe 275 ish.. He's fairly long which years down the road will means a giant... He's also got big feet, notice the pad on his hind leg when he's walking away... All in all the bears are getting bigger, but nothing that puts lead in my pencil.......

Is that last pic the same bear? He looks huge in that pic.

Went to bait last year's spot today... 80 lbs of donuts gone... Several decent bears comming in including one that may push scales to 500 lbs as he's pretty long... Have bait out in another spot that I will check tomorrow then decide where to hunt come next Monday.... Like always will they come in during daylight hours?? Here's the bigger of the bunch...

I put a camera about 2 ft off the ground for another angle to judge size.... Let's see if they eat it....

Well...... I got a BIG PROBLEM..... MAJOR DECISION..... Checked my other spot and yup.... You guessed it.... I had a giant pass through 2 times during daylight hours feasting on the acorns that are comming down big time... Also had several other bears passing through during daylight hours.... Now I think this boar is older and bigger than the one at the other site.... And I pulled camera figuring I had my bear picked out elsewhere.... Good decision to have...
