Last year in New Mexico I used a couple of blinds that I set up on water holes for hunting Elk. There were a lot of bears hiting the water holes as well. I had a lot of problems with the bears clawing and biting holes in the tents. They never tore any down, but made lots of holes in them. There was no food or sents left in the tent so it must of been done out of curiosity. I was thinking about spraying the tent down with water mixed with tabasco. Any other sugestions to keep the bears away from the tents at night?
Thanks packmule. Im gona mix up a batch and try it out on the blinds. I just in vested over $300 in two Big Mike Blinds!
I wouldn't hunt it right after applying it. That mess is bound to make eyes water.
I would build a blind from surrounding vegetation.... Couple t posts and some bailing wire and you can make an amazing blind that doesn't cost much, is effective, and is easy to spruce up if a bear messes with it. Just an idea...
Hilltop, I like that idea. I already have the wire and t posts lying around my farm. Also will be easer packing in to my water hole locations. Thanks for that Idea!
