Has anyone even been out for bears yet? Has anyone heard of anyone else getting one? Any news articles or anything?

I am thinking of going for a hunt at bear swamp state forest. I believe its in chayuga county has anyone tried hunting here before?

We hunted there on opening morning of gun season a few years ago when word got out about the wild boars up there.

All I can say is wow, what a shyt show! It sounded like a fricking battle zone. We got there an hour before daylight and there was already probably 60 vehicles parked along the road that goes right through the forest and that doesn't include the community of campers parked along the road. I set up on the edge of the swamp to try and catch a hog coming through, but never saw a single animal. My brother filled his 7j dmp before we left there at 9am.

A guy on the LI hunting site got a bear with a crossbow this morning. Nice young bear  probably around 125-150lbs. In the corn field.

Main is not NY. I shot at a bear that size two years ago and missed. Would of loved to have all that meat as Yogi burgers.

REALLY?  Good thing for him that he was hunting during bear season and not during 150+lbs bear season.   BTW I've seen a lot of small bears pictured on Maine Outfitters websites that are smaller than 125lbs. 


Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

I recall seeing some NYS bear harvest stats a few years ago and was surprised to see that most of the bears killed were smaller than what I would have figured.  (say 150 and under.)  The females just don't usually grow that big.  I shot a female that was 7 years old and it dressed 148 i think.

I am the one that you are talking about. I filmed my friend shoot the bear. While we never put it on the scale the taxidermist estimated his live weight at approximately 225 pounds. It was a male estimated to be 3 plus years old. The taxidermist said that in another four weeks or so the bear would've put on about another 75 pounds. Believe it or not he measured the skull of this bear and it just missed being Pope & Young by three quarters of an inch I believe. This was the first time I had ever been on a bear hunt and I actually thought the bear was small, But after talking with the taxidermist and seening a few other bears that were brought in my friends bear was not as small as I thought. I will try to see if I can post a link here for the video.

Here is the link to the video. I am not a professional I just do this for fun unfortunately I did not get the kill good on video because it happened so fast and the angle that I was in the tree, I could not see the bear like my friend could when he shot.

      Hi: I live in the Adirondacks in the village of Bloomingdale, located in Essex County.  I have been hunting for over 40 years, am  a very active 65, married since 1972, retired from the Air Force and love to hunt.  I am a certified New York State Hunter Educator and would like to meet a similar experienced hunter with whom I can partner with.  
       
      Usually you don't see this type of topic, but, hey, it does not mean it will not work.  Just maybe there is someone out there with a similar need.  Here are some of my preferences:  I prefer tracking deer, but on occasion will sit early and late in the day. If you followed Larry Benoit and his sons, that is how I like to hunt.  I really enjoy the hunt, the shot is secondary.  I like hunting small game as rabbits, grouse, and pheasant.  I used to have a Brittany that was an excellent dog, but now I have no dogs.  I respect all game laws and will hunt all day in areas far off the beaten path.  Shooting a deer is not the most important result in my hunts, the enjoyment and quality of the hunt is what matters to me.  Why am I looking for a partner?  Going alone can be dangerous especially if you get hurt or need help. Then there is always the work after getting a deer.  Two people make the job so much easier. I would prefer someone that has a similar past history and lives no more than a 60 mile radius from me.  If most of my preferences interest you, send me a message.  Thanks for reading and if you have any questions, just send them.  You never know.

      yea that's a big black bear! lol Now imagine being in the woods in early season with a bow and arrow.  Heavy brush surrounding you while you are miles up and around a mountain in a huge park that is infamous for bear hunting.  All the sudden the woods start to turn on you as a six sense kicks in and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.  You feel a shiver of sorts run through your body as you suddenly realize the feeling is that your being watched.  At that moment everything you have learned in life becomes useless as you are faced with a new threat.  A threat you openly engaged and planned for.  You have entered the bears home now this is no longer your back yard and no cell phone service to call for help due to the iron deposits in the mountains!  Its at that point you test yourself on weather to move forward trusting yourself and your gear and the time and effort you put in to training with it.  Or you turn around and head back.  First time I came across fresh bear shit It scared the hell out of me.  Then when I found three piles of it right next to each other I decided to set up a tree stand lol  I hope to god that I get to harvest one in my lifetime.  To bag a 750+ pound black bear is an instant lifetime award and a place in the record books.  Taking one ethically is enough to have you shaking in fear before the shot.  Looks like he was using a slug gun or shotgun with a slug in it.  Enough to do the job at close range.  Remember black bears charge but rarely attack.  Shooting one through the scope of a high caliber rifle let alone a bow at 35mph is no easy task!  But survive and you have personally pitted yourself amongst the men who hunt and kill the apex predator..THE BEAR!!   I would have him stuffed standing on two feet and put him next to a rocking chair in my living room.  As the years go by we would share many stories as I would routinely have coffee in the morning and a glass of skotch in the evening time together.  As I grew older I hope to die next to such an amazing animal in that old chair next to that old bear lol lolololol  GET SOME!

      Hey guys I am going on my first bear hunt in 3A next weekend to wrap up the early season.  I was wondering if you guys had any tips for a newbie bear hunter!  I am hunting with a weatherby vanguard series 2 in 30-06 with a Winchester ballistic silver tip 150g round.  I picked up a screech call and my friend I am hunting with is bringing vanilla caramel extract in the legal limit allowed.  We are hunting a lake surrounded by 3000ft peaks and I am planning on hunting the peaks for the most part.  Any advice you guys have would be greatly appreciated.  There are a ton of streams that run down into the lake so we were thinking of following them up the mountain.  Thanks for taking the time I will update the post with any pics if we bag one!
