Successful New Brunswick Bear Hunt

          I successfully hunted Black Bear over bait with Slipp Brothers, Ltd. in Hoyt, New Brunswick last week.  It was my second time bear hunting with Ron and Duane and I now have two bears.  The second day of a five day hunt saw a nice bear come to the bait right at dusk and one shot from my 30-06 was all that was needed.  My bear was an 8 to 10 year old sow that weighed 262 ponds on the camp scale and was the second largest sow shot in the camps 28 year history.  My hunting partner also shot a nice bear that same evening and had several other bears come the bait barrel.

 

          The Slipp Brothers run an excellent camp that includes three meals a day and very nice sleeping accommodations.  The Slipp brothers had 16 rifle hunters and four bow hunters this season.  All the rifle hunters shot bear and two of the bow hunters were successful.  The other two bow hunters saw bear but either failed to shoot or missed.  The Slipp brothers were also three for three with moose during the three day New Brunswick season.  Big smile

You do not happen to be one

You do not happen to be one of the Slipp Brothers do you? Or maybe just a stock holder... ha ha I am just kidding. You just sound like a very satisfied hunter... and rightfully so. Congratulations to you guys on your success. Taking the second largest bear taken in 28 years is no small feat. That is pretty awesome. I no I do not just speak for myself when I plead for some pictures. That would be awesome to get a look at that thing. Good work and hopefully your success will continue.

It does sound like an advertisement for the slipp brothers doesn't it?  Where are the pictures?  Pictures always are nice to go with the story.  You said yours was the second biggest taken from the camp in 28 years.  What was the biggest and what do they average there?

Congrats on your bear, siver

Congrats on your bear, siver bear. I'll reiterate, do you have any pics to show? We like to hear the stories and see the pics. We read the story, now we're looking for the pics.

Or maybe you guys are right, he is one of the Bros and doesn't want to show his face for fear we'll find out.

"Steeleman" posted the exact word for word post on another website.  I find it while trying to look up the Slipp Brothers to see what their outfit was like.

This shows you that all posts (good or bad) should be taken with a grain of salt. Often times, it's simply the outfitter trying to promote themselves. If the post is to discredit the outfitter, it can be a competitor looking to trash a good outfitter. Either way, folks need to do their own research and not rely on anonymous forum posts.
