Has anyone ever whit messed it? I found a young bear that was freshly killed so I put a trail cam up and I got a bunch of pictures of a older bear feeding on it. This was about the 10th of August this year. Posted ImagePosted Image

I'd bet this time of year a bear will eat about anything to put more far on. I have not heard of it though.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

I've read articles and seen TV shows where bear hunting outfitters like to recover shot bears without leaving out overnight because of other bears feeding on a carcass.

I've heard that the older boars will kill even the smallest of bear cubs to protect their territory from encroachment later.

meat is meat to them I guess, and they are opportunistic predators as well. Trail cams shows us pretty unique stuff, and are a great hunting tool.

I've heard a boar will kill younger boars that try to take over his territory but this was a sow and she was about 100 pounds. It was 2 weeks before any hunting season was open.
Trail cameras are great tools and I don't know what I'd do without mine lol.

The sow kicks the boar out before she delivers the piglets because he will eat them right up, they are ruthless buggers. That is why they need to be killed and grilled before they kill off young deer.

Big bears kill little bears.  Little bears watch/smell for big bears when coming to baits.  Big bears watch/smell for people when coming to baits.

...It might not be uncommon, but it's still real cool to actually capture it on video. Good posts.

I seen the same picture recently, on a PETA website. The caption read that this was a "Mommy bear, grieving over the body of her dead cub." The cub had been shot and partially gutted by the giant hunter that is barely visible in the background. The shame!

No, not really! It was just a joke in regard to your reflection in the background. Sorry if I cause you grief. And no, PETA is not hunting you for gutting that cub.

Black bears are one of the worst offenders of killing fawns and calves in the spring.

Elk hunting a couple years ago we stumbled onto a nice black bear and shot him , skinned right there and left the carcass . Came back thru the area the next day and not even any bones left ,ground was covered with bear tracks .. Yes , they take care of their own .
