Dan when you hunt MN

Unread postby john1984 » Wed Aug 13, 2014 5:53 am

Dan, when you bear hunt on public in MN do you pre set your tree stand and leave it out there or do you pack it in and out for each hunt? What advice do you have for guys who hunt public in WI where you can't have pre set stands? Because in an different bear thread you said you wanna have a pre set stand. If I set up on the bait trail will a bear get spooked if he sees climbing sticks on a tree that was never there before?

A lot of the time because of law, or because in some cases multiple trees are picked for exact wind, I carry my stand in with me and set up same day as the 1st hunt. However, the tree is set up when I set the bait up so its just climb the tree and set the stand which I can do in minutes silently. I try and leave really quiet and usually don't take the stand down when I leave.
In your case with an outfitter on public land where you can't leave stands, I would have a tree ready.
