Hi, just saw you message I am a guide for Trapper Mikes outfitting In Northern Manitoba Canada. They have been around many years and have well established baits and large bears hitting. You can call Anne Snihoor at 204-677-3563 to ask her some details. If you want some photo's of bears I have guided one was 6"11" not bad at all send me your email address I'm at bcmurphy @mts.net.
There are many other well respected outfitters in Manitoba also just search Manitoba black bear on the internet.
Bring them in on a string. I love this term, if you want to be successful on calling in Elk, try not to just sound like the other caller. We all laugh at each other when we are practicing Elk calling at home or while camping. When I first started calling in Elk, I had no idea what i was doing and it's funny how many I could call in. The biggest Bull that I have called in to date was actually my first. I was making cow calls and screwing it up big time. But it's obvious I didn't screw up...
