Found a HUGE bear track
Coach posted a topic in Black Bear or Grizzly Bear huntsLet me first start out by saying I know absolutely nothing about hunting big bears in AZ. I had one close encounter several years back where I talked to a rancher that had a really huge bear killing not only his calves but some of his cows, and when I finally got to see the bear that was doing the damage I passed over it thinking it was a big black cow bedded on the hillside. When I came back to it in the glass I was totally blown away. I dismissed it because I really didn't think we had bears big enough to be what I had just panned over. As I scrambled to the truck to get my gun and rangefinder, the bear ambled into an oak thicket and I never got a shot. We found that sow's paw prints on all the water in the area but never saw her again. Well, this last weekend I was out looking for some places to set up trail cameras down in the desert with my family and we found a pond with deer and bear tracks all around it. There was a set of bear tracks that literally dwarfed anything I've seen in AZ, and I have seen some really big ones on the San Carlos, and those of that bear that was so big I thought it had to be a cow laying on the hillside. Without pictures, it's hard to describe, but I wear a size 12 Danner and the back foot of this bear was a couple inches shorter and 2-3 inches wider than my foot. The front paws were easily 5.5 to 6 inches wide. There was a huge storm coming in as we found this pond, so we kind of hurried out, but I really want to put a camera up. Unfortunately, the tanks is #1 right off a pretty well used road and #2, no good trees at all to put a camera on. So, for you guys out there that know how to hunt big bears, what would you do? I'm thinking just get on higher ground and sit or do some calling. Not much water in this area, big, huge, extremely thick country so glassing isn't an option. We either have to call him or sit his water hole. How would you hunt him?
GreatWhiteBuffalo posted a topic in Trail CamerasSet out the camera over July 4th on a spring and picked up last weekend. At least 3 bears. Bears pushed this camera all around and just seemed to have a great time with it. Finally the camera stayed in this position facing away from the spring and lots of photos of squirrels and pretty sure another bear? ...and this pretty girl decided to get close the evening before i retrieved the cam. ,,,not Colorado without local giant that we will be chasing this fall
Unit 33 Bears
AZLance posted a topic in Trail CamerasAnyone on here ever hunted Unit 33 for bears? I might have to try it out now that I found this spot... How hard is it to draw?
Since we're on a roll with bear pics..
Critter posted a topic in Trail CamerasFigured I'd share a couple from the last two weeks. I've got tons of bear pics from over the years from these two trick tanks but these are more recent. Also some fox, mulies, and a bobcat. Plus hundreds of other elk and deer pics.

Some pictures of this year's scouting
cramerhunts posted a topic in Trail CamerasI thought I would share some pictures of our scouting efforts so far. My daughter has the Jr hunt, my cousin and I have the early December hunt, and we'll be chasing bears come October.....should be a good year!
AZLance posted a topic in Trail CamerasI was lucky enough to spend a great deal of time in the woods of Southern Arizona this year, and thought I would share some of it with you. I had several trail cameras deployed, and captured over 44 differnt bears on camera this year. One bear that looked like a Honey Badger, another bear with a yellow G&F tag in his ear, lots of cinnamon bears, a few bears taking a bath, and several Boars chasing Sows during the mating season. Here are a few of them, Hope you enjoy.
