Just wanted to let everyone know I hunt zone 3 all year long. I recently had my stand camera and feeder stolen off eastshore drive in hewitt by greenwood lake. The best part Ive been getting great pictures of bears in wanaque wma on my second camera checked monday to get ready for tuesday morning bear hunt everything looked great. Came out this morning someone took a hacksaw to my camera lockbox and stole my seat I sat all day anyways and of course no bears sighted [sad]...... Dont know what to do now that their talking about an early end to the hunt. I also have heavy deer driving going on didnt expect it where I set up.... I want to change spots but so late into it im worried. Does anyone have any Ideas on what I could do to bait a spot on short notice? I was going to try a honey burn and lay some maple corn out. Any help would be great im at this point.
are you sure it wasnt the bear guys out to mess with you? i could be wrong but i cant see a club carrying a hack saw on a drive and carrying out a feeder.
Same here.....camera stolen 4 years never a problem, always removed prior to 6 day. Only reason left this year is the that site was converted to bear bait. Had GREAT action. Been on there sun up to sun down havent had a bear move yet. People suck
The awosting area gets hit hard all week dont give up lots of bucks/bears in that area this year,head for the big woods boarding sterling.Also there is no more wanaque wma it is all just state forest now.I also have heavy deer driving going
thats why i went in last Sunday and took out the camera and the first 5 steps in all my stands. sorry i know it sucks iv'e been there.
I noticed one of my ladder stands in Wawayanda, peppered with shot Monday afternoon. Its right behind Barry lakes, probability a bear nut. Its the after work bow sit stand, been there 9 years.
This fall there was a govt auction of all sorts of stuff and they had about 8 lots of tree stands; hang ons, ladder, etc...
Maybe COs are removing these things?
there are so many new ladder stands in waway this week its unbelievable you can drive down the main road and see them 60 yards off the road.
