Any body middle ga bear huntin this year?

Thread starter #1
Whos hunting the one day bear hunt this year in mid ga. Anybody getting good pics? Seeing sign? Etc. Looking for land to hunt in that area so I can participate. Hard to come off the kinda cash I takes to get on one of those clubs for a one day season at the end of the year.Just looking for a little insight on land access or availabilities. Be nice if they would move that date back to early season, open it up for public land on a quota based system to make it fair for general public. Or public land bow only during bow season would be a good option.

I have access to a tract on the Ocmulgee, but it is underwater with all this rain. Doubt I it will be huntable even by Saturday.
Very unfortunate! All this rain has been a pain. I would like to find something huntable, guess I will be In Talbot co. though! Hope someone finds em a good one. Happy hunting.

Yep my property In Twiggs has bears but is underwater big time right now. We are real close to river. The bears will most likely be up on the highland off our lease this year as the dens will be flooded.

:( Well if any luck is had y'all post em up. I'm jealous, be nice if they would issue some quota tags to general public for ocmulgee and oaky woods wma's. Maybe one day.

Yeah, I've been pushing for more opportunity to make it a fair game dont think it's right that you have to have private access to hunt em. I heard years ago the wma's and bond swamp used to have a quota hunt for general public. That would be great if they would go back to that and still allow the private land guys their day. I have seen a couple nice ones at oaky woods in the past just scouting around and both had size to em. Hunting the mountains is a different experience. I had a blast. A tired, soar, achy, hilly, wet blast but I had fun, shot 2 bears only recovered 1 but I have to say I would probably prefer to do it on flat familiar ground. Mountain hunters earn everything.

Yeah so I rode down 96 and crossed the river and you guys are right looks like crap. Water for miles but that could be a good thing for surrounding properties if the bears are being pushed out of their normal areas because of water might not be hard to get on one if you knew the right property owner.

I will go tomorrow but that water you saw on 96 before the bridge in Twiggs is my property. I guess I’ll be able to shoot hogs but would rather shoot one of those aggravating bears.

Good luck, I'll be after a doe this mornin, that and one bear tag is all I have left this year. Been a good season. That looks like more of a duck hunting spot right now. Sure it's some good hunting when it's not flooded.
