Hey All:

So, Dana is this early to be seeing so many Bears... Seems to me it is; but I am not the X-Spert that you are.

Have a Good One!

ok, im going crazy, time to get out the house and in the woods yet? i just had surgery on my right elbow, ive been putting it off a couple of years, so i fegur i would go ahead and do it before hunting season so it would he heald up enough to do some tree climbing, and triger pulling. come season. i think its good enough to get out the tree spikes and do a dry run. and shure enough im good to go. just holler and ill come a running.

Talking Bear hunting in North Georgia

Hey All:

Time to put a role call together and firm up a plan.

The week of Gun opener is my plan to get up to the mountains for a Bear Hunt.

We need to line up a -

- Bow Hunt,

- Black Powder and

- Gun

So who is game and good to get things lined up?

Probably bring the Pop-up so I'll have some space for a couple guys...

Gapacman (Rick is already to be placed on a e-mail list)...

Who else wants in, let me know...

The Fred Bear Bow is tuned, sighted and well practiced already - How Bout You!!!

Have a Good One.

Thanks for the Bear stories. After reading this entire thread I got so fired up I went scouting in the rain this mornng. Didn't see anything in the woods but I was riding around after the rain quit and saw a small bear on the side of the road. Keep the stories coming.

what kind of sights are you using on your bear / hog style gun ? right now my Encore in 450 Marlin is wearing a 1.5X4.5 X 20 scope with center dot lighted red as needed. so far I haven't changed from open sights on either the 20" 460S&W carbine ,or the 15"460S&W pistol barrel but I am looking at changing them both. eddy

I was thinking open sights might be best but as I get older scopes / dot sights are faster for these old eyes eddy

Anyway, hoep you and yours are doin well... Look'n like you are gonna fill your out-fittin quoto; good luck with that.

I posted some ideas on the traditional forum about opening weekend. Figured we could get together at our cabin next to Swallow Creek after Saturday evening's hunt and throw some stuff on the grill.
Good friend of mine with the DNR ran bear lines this July and said they identified some that were probably 400+ pounds. As Dana said earlier they probably are all dead by now from that strange disease.
Let me know if anybody is interested in opening weekend get together (bow). If the river rises and you want to fish I can put you on a private portion of the Hiawasse for some nice trout as well. Let me know early on, I can only put a few on at a time. 1st come 1st served.

Thumbs up Bear hunting in North Georgia

Hey All:

Ed's Boy put me down for a slot... I am slated to be in Hilton Head on Friday night (Dang if work don't get in the way of my Hunt'n...).

Trouble with "Opening Day" is it tends to remind me of "Amatuer (Caint Spel Neither) Day"... I like to Kick Off the following week, but; that's jus me...

Don't know if you have heard from any of the other Good Ole Boys like Brian Chambers, Dana Young and or Base3448?

I am gonna Chunk Out an e-mail out to them all to see if we can meet up.

Could be a wild time in the Mountains this year... Some Grumpy ol'Hungry Bears...

Have a Good'n...

Default Bears everywhere

A White County deputy ran over one last week just south of Cleveland,and last Wed. I had one run out in front of me at the Dollar General here in Cleveland.This was 1:30 in the afternoon.The north bound car was almost decorated with a bear rug.This time last year I had a huge bear come up in my back yard.For some reason they start roaming this time of year.I probably seen 8-9 bears last August between scouting and just riding WMA roads.
