    Default Leaving Bear stand

    So I am hoping to spend some time bear hunting this spring. I will be in a ladder stand set up about 50m from bait.
    I'm a first timer for bear and have one question for those with experience...
    When non shooter bears are at your bait and its time to leave how do you handle that? Any concerns making a sow with cubs aware of you within 50m?
    Thanks

    I read that some people bring rocks to toss at the bears or even a sling shot to chase them away before getting down. I am a big chicken so I would make sure I am out of there before dark
    I guess making noise, loud talkin should work too

    Talk. Start low and slowly get louder. It sometimes takes a while but the will eventually buzz off.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    Good one!

    my short experience with bears tells me that they are big chickens for the most part.
    every once in a while, like coyotes, you'll get a gutsy one. but the sound of a round fired into the air will usually send it packing.

    unless you pick up a cub. then she will instantly respect you!

    I find the movement of packing up your stuff typically scares them off. If not, the sounds of tinging steel on steel (arrow to treestand for example) seems to work. After that, its a rock from my slingshot at the steel barrel they are standing next to.

    We mainly do afternoon hunts. Climb down at dark. I have had bears waiting to hit the bait as soon as I get back to the truck. A bit uncomfortable but that's bear hunting!!! Lol
