Thats the guide there i had with my bear. He has bears still moving into the stand sites. He sent me one of a giant. Bear is massive and its on all four legs and its back is almost as tall as the standing corn. Its a weird spot he has and its not what id call your typical bear country. I did how ever had the chance to also shoot a ten goose a day limit in the ams. Goose hunting was worth it alone, then add a bear like that. Never have i felt a rush like that on a animal. Im hooked and now looking to book a hunt for a blonde bear. The outfitter refered me to a guide in manatoba. Said they run 75% colour phase and there also a small operation as well but they are on big bears and also selectively harvest target bears. In ontario i was givin two choices and only two bears he said i would be targeting. He was strick on what bear i could harvest. Didnt want any others shot. Said its not like deer. In five years you can have a great mature whitetail but it takes atleast 3 times longer to grow a good bear. I will have all the info on it as well. He was made in his unit to submit a tooth and also measurements of the bear and its condition. Like i stated its a weird area. Never heard of that before. But i will be back;))
No. This is the first time since i got back from i posted or talked about my hunt. Im still looking for a good spot for a colour phase bear. Im thinkin manitoba in the spring. The outfitter i was at said its probally my best bet. But im in ontario every fall. I killed a great bear but they have killed some giants. Its the corn fields that gets them that big. Id never consider going else were for a fall hunt. Im no expert but when your around bears that exceed 600-800 pounds its a no brainer. I seen a pic of a bear they killed years ago and also the paper work. 776.4 lbs!! Said two came in and both were the same size. They have one up there on trail cam and they figure it at over 1000!!! Thats crazy. I did see the photos and it is massive. Like massive massive. He runs about two dozen sites and only takes a dozen hunters at most year. I think there booked solid for next year already. Does anyone know about ontario just opened back up the spring hunts! They said its open only for residents for the next two years. Its a pilot project according to the outfitter.
Ontario's trying the spring season for residents only slated for next spring. I believe it's because of the population explosion of bears around farm land. Also the lack ofnon-resident hunters due to the economy. I have a friend near Timmons ON that keeps me posted on some of this stuff. Congrats again. Kevin
I am always amazed at the amount of scent control products that exist on the market today. But they are there for a reason. Game animals have incredible noses and if you go out into the field smelling like body odor, summer sausage, gasoline and last night's Miller High Life fiasco you will probably not be punching a tag. Scent control sprays aren't cheap though. On a college student budget I had a serious need to alleviate at least some of my hunting costs. This is why I decided to...
