Default Dumpster Score!





Heís in rough shape. Not sure what to do with it besides scare my boy by putting it in his room. Heís with the grandparents for a few more weeks. Iím not gonna say what meeting I was at and with what State agency but I just couldnít let this little dude go out like that.

So, how do I get this guy in front of a game cam without being in the pics myself? The ultimate crime.

Set it up on your own spots where the pics look real and not photoshopped. You'll have everyone you show a pic to going

Just go up from behind the camera and hold it up in front like its sniffing the camera. Then scoot it back just a touch so they get a better shot of its face.

Looks like it might have had some bug damage (some kind of bug that commonly eats mounts)

I would think twice before I took that in my house

The cool thing about this bear is it does have a story. Itís been all over the state for youth education. When I saw the young man carrying it out in his green pants and tan top I asked him if I could have it and he gave me a little back story. His reply to my immediate question was ďI have to put in the dumpster.Ē And with nod and a grin, we both knew what was gonna happen after he walked away.

Over the camera like an animal is close and then set it out. Once camera triggers and gets pics (might wave at it from behind) cover camera again and move it back out of the way

Ya'll laughing at my bear! That's the way he was shot. Taxi did a darn good job catching essence.

Had to toss it because the dogs were getting mange from it, I think.

This bear does have some provenance and Iím not against passing the bear along when Iím done with it. This might deserve its own thread. Like I said. After I heard itís story I just couldnít let him go out like that.

1) Mount it on a remote controlled base.

2) Unleash it outside of camera range in areas with enough undergrowth to hide the base.

3) LOL

Put it in a small area (shed or something) and set off a Raid Bug Bomb. It will kill all little beatle looking things that are eating the mount.

Default Dumpster Score!

Just to clear. Yes Iím gonna put this in my sons room the day before he comes home. Then the bear will be removed. I have no need to salvage this guy nor do I think heís salvageable. I just want him to go out like a rock star. Heís done his time and service to the great state of Texas.

This bear, post market hunting and in on until the 80ís in certain parts of the state woulda been about as big as they got. Slow decline and know we know they are back in small ways. Pretty cool.

If it's not a cellular camera, come up behind the camera and open the cover and turn it off. Put the bear out and turn the camera back on. Carefully move your finger across the motion detector without covering the shutter. Listen for the click and turn the camera back off. Remove the bear and put the camera back how you found it. Not sure if this will work with cellular cameras.

Man a fellow could put it beside the road on its side. Maybe by a bridge banister so you could hide and film. Fox pro hid close. Let a fellow get close then make him think momma bear was coming. I'm guessing a guy could get famous in east tx with such on youtube.
