Black Bears

Is anyone else in Ontario seeing as many bears as I am. This year is going to be insane for blacks Ive seen atleast 30 in the last 2 months. I like to take my kids to the reserve dump once in awhile and maybe see a few. We went in there the other day and they were stepping on each other we counted 15. Sows and boars only, no cubs, smallest being probably 130 and biggest being about 500. Im going in a few days I could only get a few pics because my batteries died.(Went and bought a new camera right away) (word of advice dont buy a hewlett packard camera ever! They are shotty and the batteries last about 10 mins) But heres the few I did get to share.

4 days! The countdown begins. I have been doing great with baiting this year I have atleast 5 different bears comming in now. We'll see on friday when I get a look at em. Anyone else having good luck with thier baiting? It also looks like alot of cubs around this summer so hopefully I don't see too many of em but it's nice to get a few pics. Time to clean the rifle up and get er ready for the big day. Good luck all, with your hunts. Thumbs up

Hard to believe but this late in August and the deer flies are still bad. For the first time in years its been a real chore baiting but on the bright side, every bait is being pounded.

Yep they're insane here too and I have noticed some new blood suckers, we have a green looking deer fly now that bites real good and the misquitoes are worst than ever exspecially next to my bait.
Also on the bright side I am also having amazing luck with my bats this year bill mine are getting pounded too. The days are going by way to slow now though, I'm like a kid in a candy store waiting for my favourite candy to arrive.
