People don’t realize the drama that an Arkie/Okie bear hunter goes through during the approaching days before season. In the fall, these bears can be real shysters and will leave you without a day’s warning. During this time we become like paranoid
We’ve got nine bear baits set out in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Most of them were started on September 7th. I personally have not been able to get back to the baits, however, my bear baiting partner has checked several of them and they’ve all been hit.
I am fortunate to be from in a region of Arkansas that borders Oklahoma. Though the out-of-state Oklahoma tag is, as far as I know, the most expensive bear tag in North America ($506), I am looking forward to both hunts. However, my plan at this time isn’t to hunt Arkansas over bait, but rather save my tag for a spot-and-stalk Arkansas hunt like last year. However, I will be going after blood in Oklahoma.
