Hey Fellas

Quess it's my week for some good news!

Passed my test from when I was in Virginia, so I don't have to pay the company $2000.00 that I would have ifn I'd flunked!

Received a letter from the President of my company letting me know I will receive a 6 percent (better than 0) profit sharing allocation.

Lastly, just got notified by the DNR that I was drawn for the BF Grant Quota Hunt Nov. 29 to Dec. 2, now I am looking for other folks (Woody'ites) to hook up with.

Posted a thread in the "Public Land" section of the forum, le'me know if you have any thoughts on how to hook up with others!!!

I'll be poking around the forum to get the word out!

Any of Ya'll gonna be there???

I am traveling on business in Hilton Head until Friday.

Only 4 more golf outings and I'll put the sticks up (Best part of my Golf Game is when Deer Season Starts!!!)

Take care, be safe and I'll see you dragging that 12 Point outta the woods on Saturday (Post Those Pics Brothers!!!)

I let one that would probably make pope and young walk sat morning, When I first saw him I thought he was too small and then He changed angles and Irealized he was a shooter bear, Probably weigh out better than 300 lbs with a head the size of a wash tub. The only shot I had was when I first saw him. I followed him trying to flank him for about 4 or 500 yds but just as he was starting to turn to cross my path my foot slipped on a rock and he heard me and looked right at me thats when I knew he was a pope and young bear, He stood just over waste high with a length of 5 or more feet but he was just over 40 yds through some limbs and facing me, he turned and trotted over the hill and got into some thick stuff. I found where he was headed to some white oaks just above where I spooked him, here is where I found evidence of just how big he really is, I found a mountain dew can with canine teeth holes 3 inches apart in it, That tells me he will probably measure pope and young. Trust me guys I see alot of bears and judging their size is sometimes hard to do when I first saw him I thought he wasn't big enough and he was only 25 yds away but below me on the mtn as I followed him at different angles I was able to determine that he was a much larger bear. so start looking at all the pictures of bears you can find and try to judge their size.

Base looks like you might not even need our help on getting a bear. Chattahoochee is full of them but I believe I would try to get that chocolate phase one they are not very common in these mtns also be careful with that bear because he has becam acclimated to humans and he will be dangerous because he has lost his fear of humans. I'll probably go back after that large one this afternoon as I am reasonably sure I will see him again and this time I will be in a stand waiting on him.

Well all I can say is being at the right spot at the right time, some hunters hunt long and hard and never see any at all. That was a dream day for me.

I can say without the knowledge and help of other skilled hunters passing on the tradition of good ethical bear hunting skills. I would not be who i am today and surely not have had a day like that, which i will never forget and shared with my family.

Default Bear hunting in North Georgia

Hey Base3448:

Sounds like you got the FEVER! Good to hear you are get'n out to the woods and getting a jump start on that MONSTER bruin!

I've been in the deer woods over the past few days, man has it been toasty during the day (down here in Sparta, GA). 0 for 3, but the odds are getting better!!!

Somebody once told me that "You can't catch any fish unless you have your hook in the water" - so for me, get'n out there is half the battle!!!

Take care, be safe and we'll see you in the woods soon!

Hello,sounds like you guys are gonna have a great time,no matter.I'm from Pa. and they hunt bear a little different up here.They put on drives and beat them out of the swamps and mountain laurel and rhodies.How many bear do you guys have and how big do they get?We have somewhere around 15 thousand bears.Last season they shot 3354 during the 3 day season and an additional 810 during the extended season in several counties.Couple years back they had 3 harvested over 800 lbs.Have heard of some trapped and tagged in the fall over 1000 lbs.No one has shot one yet.Haven't bear hunted in several years but found your dialouge interesting and wanted to share. check out the following link.http://www.pgc.state.pa.us/pgc/cwp/v...a=473&q=168199

Resica,
Not sure of the estimated # or #'s killed but we have plenty of bears and some into the 500 lb range. Our bear season in the mtn counties last from sept 9'th through Dec 3'rd this year. These dates include bow, muzzleloader, and modern firearms. we also have wildlife management areas with hunts after those dates.

HEY NOW, I wasn't even close to being ready to stop climbing. Anytime you want to take the hard route I am willing to tag along. BTW, the climb wasn't nearly as rough as the ride. You know I am kidding you Dana, that was fun too!


Thanks Dana for a great afternoon in those beautiful mountains. I really appreciate you sharing your insight and smarts about hunting the bears. I want to do it again REAL soon. I have to be at Unicoi State Park on the 23rd to help out with a kids archery shoot. Maybe I can come up earlier or stay later and we can do it again. My part in the effort at Unicoi should be over by 3 PM but I might be able to cut that short if need be.

So far all I've seen is his sign, still looking for a track but he's a shooter based on what I've seen so far.

New guy here. Just moved from Texas to the great state of Georgia. Been looking forward to trying my hand at a bear. My girlfriend's dad hunts them with Plott hounds in TN but I'm game for anything. I've learned a ton reading this thread. You guys are very informative and I appreciate you sharing your first hand wisdom. Keep it up and let me know if you all need one more for Oct. Have smokepole, will travel.
