What Month And Week Is Best?

If you were to go on a spring black bear hunt over bait in New Brunswick, what month and week would you go? When do think the bears would be most active, and has anyone hunted there during early May? Thanks for any info Confused

opinion

Please note that I've never hunted black bear in N.B., so others would likely know more than I. I am a firm believer in early hunts though. By that I mean hunts on or near opening day (if that's a consideration). It's also my opinion that at least some guides talk up other weeks to hunt because so many hunters want opening week and they need to sell multiple weeks to make any $$.

I'm simply a firm believer of being the first one with a gun sitting on any bait that's been there long enough to attract bears. Yes

From what I hear though, some areas of N.B. are simply crawling with bears, so perhaps it's not a huge concern. Also, the later you go the worse the bugs...yuck!Help!

What week of May?

The outfitter I've been corresponding with offered the second week of this coming May. Does anyone think this is kind of early. We usually hunt last week of May through mid June in Quebec. Has anyone had any early May experience in New Brunswick? Fredericton area.  Thanks
