Kill Assist – Bear Attractant

Successful bear hunts start by using a good attractant. A bears nose is second to none when it comes to detecting scent that does not smell real. An example of how powerful their nose is can be seen in this comparison:
A blood hound can smell 300 times better than us, a black bear can smell 7 times better than a blood hound. With this in mind I have come up with an attractant that has no equal. First, I use glass bottles to eliminate all permeation of the fluid mixing with the plastic. I then sterilize all bottles to get rid of all possible bacteria that can effect the smell of the product. The bottles are amber colored to eliminate effects the sun would have on the attractant.
Finally all KILL ASSIST products are sold directly by us, the manufactures. This allow us two things, personal contact with the person buying the product and assurance of fair pricing. Please try our scent and realize you have purchased the finest bear attractant available.

I am Bearcrazy

Over the last half a century I have dedicated my outdoor experience to the BLACK BEAR. My passion for this incredible animal has taken me all over Canada and the United States. Most of the time I have been accompanied by members of my family who collectively have more than a century and a half of bear hunting and study.

We will cover all aspects of the black bear. Our goal is to refine your present skills and introduce you to new procedures. All methods of hunting, including my newly found calling bear using bear vocalizations and bear decoys will be covered. A new products page for our KILL ASSIST products will be available soon. I will be releasing a new book in early 2015 that will be the most informational book ever written on black bears. Included with the book will be a DVD on bear.

In closing, no matter what involvement you have in the black bear world, bear hunting’s first family, the Wiesners will be there to assist you any way we can.

To the woods,
Bill bearcrazy Wiesner

Amber Kolstad Bear Hunt

In my 50 years of bear hunting what happened to my family and myself is beyond words. My best friends, the Kolstads, have a 14 year old daughter that is very special. In an attempt to keep this short because of articles I will be doing, on Sunday afternoon Sept 18, 2011 Amber Kolstad, with her Ten Point Crossbow in hand took her first bear using hounds. She got to see the entire spectrum of bear hunting, i.e. baitsitting and dog hunting. Her preference was using dogs and thanks to Oak Ridge Guide Service, Darrell Wood and family, made it happen.

Bill Wiesner & Amber Kolstad

The experience sparked a fire in me to do a hunt every year called the AMBER HUNT for bear. Simple way to do it is have anyone with special needs, between 12 and 18 years old, apply though this website. Anyone who gets a tag in Zone A or Zone D that would like to donate their tag to this cause is encouraged to contact me through this website. Please, let’s all get together and make a special hunt for a special individual on an annual basis.

800lb Bear – New Minnesota Record!

800lb Bear Minnesota Record

Over 800lbs! New Minnesota Bear Hunting Record!

I recently received an email from one of our Bear Scent customers in northern Minnesota of a new record bear. As you can see by the picture, this is a true giant. Tipping the scales at over 800#’s live weight and over 650#’s dressed, this is the new Minnesota weight record. My biggest bear to date is 417#’s. I cannot imagine one twice that size. It goes to prove that management of resources, such as bear, can produce records that not that long ago were unheard of to the bear hunting fraternity.

I hope to have better pictures and complete story in the near future.

Bear Hunting Radio Interview on 1570am

A couple of Wednesdays ago, I had the honor of doing an hour long radio show on 1570AM and 95.3 FM. The host of the show, Marc Drewek, asked me questions on bear hunting and related topics. It was a refreshing experience being able to talk about my favorite topic – BEAR HUNTING.

We covered subjects from the use of scents i.e. BEAR SCENTS, to the growth and popularity of bear hunting. Ted Nugent, whose roots run deep in the bear woods, also was talked about in depth. It is meetings like this radio show that is sure to spark the interest not only in bear hunting, but, growing BROTHERS OF THE BEAR.
