One hell of a great season in Manitoba. Brought my brother in law up from Nova Scotia to Gods Lake Narrows - His first time bear hunting. Had several bears hitting in spring. I was baiting the main trail on the way to the bait with bacon rags, saw a big bear at the bait, gave him the 12 guage slug gun, bear smelled the bacon and came looking and he harvested the 6"4" black bear at 10 yards on the gound. never saw a guy shake so much BUT MAN WHAT A HUNT!!!!!!!!!
