KS,
I see you're from BR. My land is off of 19 mile, near Big Jackson School. I have 10 bear points and am waiting to actually apply, until I know I'll have a September with more time. I'm thinking 2015-16 should be my years.
Lots of bear sign in my area. The worst thing is all the downstate guys who come to train their dogs, yet they don't even have a Baldwin tag.

Mojo, I've seen sign of hound hunters in some areas, but haven't had trouble yet around my baits. I'm hoping that continues, but you never know on public ground.

Oifvet, Good luck tomorrow!! I've checked my baits, checked pictures, and made my decision on which bait to hunt tomorrow. Hopefully the weather cooperates. Pick a spot, and shoot straight!!!

I hope you guys are having a good hunt. It looks like the weather is improving for you. With the youth deer hunt this weekend along with bird hunting going on there was a lot of activity in the woods. One of my bow hunting buddies who was baiting for a friend of his up in the Red Oak unit just north of you guys ran into all sorts of trouble with hound hunters. They came in to his bait set on Friday (illegal since they are not supposed to be in the woods with dogs the following day) and they broke the trail camera off the tree and smashed it up. There were hound hunters on the two track road he was baiting off of on Saturday morning and there has been no activity at his bait site since. It's public land, so the area is fair game, however when hound hunters are in their a day before they're supposed to be and destroying property, that's the type of thing that causes hunter division.

Anyway, I hope you Baldwin hunt unit guys are having a good hunt.

Had a huge amount of hunting activity around my bait this weekend. Saturday I saw 3 bears. Had a 150 pounder at the bait at 6:00 P.M.. Then about 6:30 a bigger bear came in with a radio collar, kept either his head or hind end toward me, drew my bow twice, but each time it turned before I could get a shot. Then another good size bear started toward the bait, got about 30yards away, and the radio bear ran over and started a fight with it. They both left then, it got dark and I left at 7:51. Both bigger bears were back at the baitat 8:21, and then off and on til 1:30 in the morning. Sunday there was a lot of shooting in the area, 4 wheelers running around. I hunted til dark and Didn't see anything at all. Today went to rebait, but the bait hadn't been hit. Went back at 2:30 to hunt and there was fresh bear scat on the trail into the bait, but nothing came in. Tomorrow I'm going to a different bait, let this one rest a couple days. So far it has been a good hunt, but no bear yet!
