Bear poached... i assume...
« on: September 25, 2016, 06:16:01 PM »
Well this sucks. Me and the girlfriend and little one have been getting a bear on the trail cam almost everyday for the past week, and all off a sudden nothing. We went for a walk this after noon and in the ditch just off the property was bear fur.  Why would someone leave the fur? Makes no sense.   :bash: it is so frustrating.

Can't eat the fur. I've never kept the fur from my bears. Granted, none of them were big. It is bear season after all so I doubt it was poached. Unless they were trespassing or something.

Yeah true I guess. I never thought that. Kinda weird though to take the fur out and dump it in the ditch and not leave it next to the gut pile.

Maybe they tried to save the hide and it got ruined somehow?

Who knows. We have been having alot of problems with poachers, and I've found not to long ago a deer head that hand just the cap taken off.  Could be a spot where someone dumps there left overs to.

I would agree. Sounds like someone's dumping spot.

One only has so much room for bear rugs or mounts.  Once you have one of each, unless a true trophy it isn't worth forking out another $1,200 to $1,600 on a rug or $500 to $800 on a shoulder mount.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!
