Little nicer bear, with all of his hair showed up.  I fixed the camera angle.  Love the photo of him ghosting in the background.

This one definitely has much nicer fur, much better than the naked bear! Beartivity is definitely picking up!  :tup:

Got bait site #2 up and running yesterday.  First time baiting this spot, so we'll see if they find it and if so how long it takes.

Pretty exciting night last night on bear bait #1.  Was walking the road in and a nice young couple came by on their ATV. They stopped and chatted for several minutes and then headed off.  I was about 100 yards or so from the bait.  I was slipping into the stand an as I was about 20 yards from my stand I look up and there is a decent size bear coming into the barrel from the other side.  I had him broadside at 40 yards but decided to pass.  He had a decent size body, nice looking hair but big ears and a small head.  I got a few seconds of video I'll try and post shortly.  It was a first for me.  I think he heard the ATV start up and leave and figured the coast was clear.
