Black Bear Count Down!
« on: May 09, 2011, 01:20:41 PM »
Well lets get this forum rolling!

Its count down time for my 2011 black bear hunt. We set up baits north of Slave Lake 2 weeks ago and they have been getting hit pretty hard.

I leave work here tomorrow AM and will meet the wife, my 2 boys and my cousin at Slave tomorrow and the hunt will be underway. Look forwards to hopefully seeing the wife put here first bear on the ground.

Anyways hope to see guys posting pics of the bears they have put down or that they do this season and also hope to have some pics of what we harvest this next week.

I hunt sheep to see over the next mountain not to measure the next trophy!

Lots of good bear hunting this year from what I have seen. My buddy John from Sask took this vid the other day and harvested the black one in behind the bait.

I went and bought my first ever black bear tag for a spring hunt this year hopefully i can get out.
The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man.

I've spent the last couple of weeks fixing fence (more like trying to find them in all the snow!) and branding in the Southwestern corner and I have not seen a blackie yet. I've seen one Grizzly and lots of Griz tracks but no black bears yet? Regards, Mike

Good luck to you guys. Thats one thing I miss about living in the north is the spring bear hunts. My son is getting one going in the next couple days so who knows I may be able to get up there and get in a hunt or two.

Bears are starting to move around here on the bombing range. Alot slower than the last 4 years ive been here but they are moving and the grass is getting greener. Look forward to the next week. Good luck to everyone thats going out!

Off today to give it a shot.  The baits have been getting hammered so hopefully a big guy shows up.

Congrats to the wife on the bear SG. Make sure you get some pics up when you can. The pic on my phone is pretty small, but looks like a pretty good bear.
