The Wisconsin bear season opens here in northern Wisconsin tomorrow for bait sitters. It opened a week earlier for the hound hunters. I have a bait on public land that has several bears, including a nice one, showing up during daylight hours, so I will probably target that stand for my first sit. Here are a few pix taken of that bigger bear. The timeline is 12 hours off. My other bait has been hit by smaller bears and a really nice boar, mostly at night. I'm starting to get excited.
Good luck, that is a good bear. In my experience that crease in his head has always been a good indicator of a good bear.

David, I sat from 2 p.m. until nearly dark. Saw a bear shortly before I climbed down but it turned and walked away at about 50 yards. It was dead calm at the time so don't know what went wrong. Will try again this afternoon.
