    They saw the blinds which were made of the trees they cut for a shooting lane. Three of these. Tree stands and the boxes they came in, boxes were on the ground alongside bait bags. They said it was a minor infraction during 6 day. I assumed they meant the tree cutting and garbage.

    That was my understanding. A co told me elevated according to the law could even mean shooting into a ravine. You don't have to be in tree stand. Simply above the animal

    Constructed or commercially built blinds cannot be within 100 yards of the bait site as well...

    No worries, thank you for explaining. Most others would not.

    This clown is probably a troll anti who has been waiting just for this occasion.

    If he isn't he should be on their side anyway.
    Relax Sugar I assure you I am not an anti nor do I live in Monmouth county where a bear sighting makes the front page of the paper. To me the threat of a wounded bear in my yard is a reality. I for one cant wait to go stick one with my Black Widow from the ground at 15 yards. But then again I have confidence in myself. After reading many posts on here all year about wounded animals I cant say I have the same confidence in others.

    Bears are thin skinned and not heavily bone besideds the shoulder and leg bone.

    A 35# bow and a razor sharp solid broadhead is plenty.
    My point exactly. Bears are actually in my opinion a lot less tougher then deer. My first bow bear was taken with a 42# Martian Tiger when I was a kid and it piled up in 40 yards. Shot placement is everything . I am not at all worried about the guy who is going out exclusively for bears. We all know the time and commitment involved in harvesting one. The hunter who is dedicating that time is going to make sure his shooting and his equipment are going to be top notch. I worry about the casual hunter that buys a tag just because. Thats all.

    I live with the bears everyday. They are actually far from blood thirsty 90 percent of the time. Hence the reason they run from my 60 pound black lab. You are absolutely correct in the fact they are not made of steel. Actually they are much more susceptible to a quicker death from a slightly off shot then a deer is. These dumb animals run from my neighbors 10 pound yorkie. My post was just in jest and truthfully I can care less. I am so sick and tired of these overgrown rats I would love to see them completely taken out of the state. I have been a major proponent for years for an early bow season. Cant wait for the chance to get a couple of guys together and rid a couple from the neighborhood.

    i think the point of this thread is the last thing we to see in the local newspaper or television. is black bears running around with arrows sticking out of them. so hopefully the guys who decide to bow hunt them will get a 3d target and practice and practice.
