From: jmail20
10-May-17
More than once I have seen bears show up once or twice and never see them again. Some hunters go there whole life and never get a chance at a 300 lb spring bear. He should take advantage of the opportunity and kill him tonight if he gets the chance. That's my 2 cents for what it's worth.

Humble observation. This thread (and the other bear threads) is getting long and will end up covering multiple weekly hunts. Would it make sense to start a new thread for each week? That will make it easier for everyone to go back and review what is/was taking place each week and the photo's will not get buried in a long thread. Just a thought....

Well that black came back in she shot but we lost him that's how it goes sometimes. My other guy Claire Bielat has been with me since we started in 1994 he dropped his rifle when going out last night I was watching him from a distance with the binoculars there was 4 bear on the bait all of a sudden they scattered this giant black walks in he was as wide as high it looked like from where I was he was there 1/2 hour what a bear of a life time he decided not to shoot he did not want to wound an animal like that, When he came back to the truck big smile first thing he said did u see that yep what a bear unbelievable. I told him u did the right thing by not shooting. That's how it goes also sometimes. Well to top the week off Joe Malloch. Bowsite handle jmail killed a giant 15 minutes left of legal shooting 450 lbs on the scale black what a bear he was Allan's guy this week. We will be takeing pics shortly we took the guts out last night, we have 2 weeks left Pray the Lord brings us Bears like he has the first two weeks.

Grape came in the spring of 2016 passed on the Bears then came back in the fall passed again seen 87 Bears in ten days on his declaration here he is on day 4 wondering if he should shoot.

01-Jun-17
He has killed 31 bear in his lifetime u think he loves hunting Bears.

01-Jun-17
Brodsky he passed on a 350 black last year, I think he just loves being out in the woods watching Bears. Thanks everyone that's been posting on the thread much appreciated sorry if I don't answer most time, I am wearing down it's been a busy month hope u enjoyed tommorow night is the last day for our spring season.

Looks like your seeing lots of nice colors. Can't think of anything more fun than sitting there watching bears and waiting for the right one to walk in. Can't believe the pipe insulation for your gun is still on that stand. Thought the bears would have chewed it off by now. It's been almost 3 weeks since I put it on there. Good luck tonite Greg!!

02-Jun-17
Yes sometimes the Bears chew things off right away and sometimes don't bother with it. Last day for Grape we will see what tonight brings for Bears.

From: Brotsky
02-Jun-17
Good luck tonight Grape and Alexis! Hope you guys get a dandy! You guys saw more bears in one night than I have in all 11 nights I've sat over a bear bait! Awesome!

02-Jun-17
That's one of our better baits this time of year the Bears r not as active on the bait there is lots of wild stuff they r eating, but there's a few still. Blessings on your day guys and Gals

02-Jun-17
We r back up in the stand and it's a hot one 33 Celsius we will see if the bear move our last night. Grape my last guy I think it will be a slow night to hot stay tuned.

This is Marks bear we were about 7 of us guessing the weight of him we were all over in the 400 lbs I said before we pulled him up it takes a big bear to weigh 400 lbs it was 402 very hard to guess the weight of a bear

02-Jun-17
Alexis, You are killing me;)

02-Jun-17
Frank u will have some good bear hunting yet never give up. Dave u and me both know what it takes to bring Bears in ,nothing easy about it.

From: jmail20
02-Jun-17
33 Celsius, that hot. Keep the faith, it's not over till it's over. The way I look at it your chances are just as good on the last night as they are on the first night.

02-Jun-17
Congratulations on an outstanding season! Really nice colored bears you have.

02-Jun-17
Thanks guys nothing showed up yet, hey Joe just got a 2000 lb digital scale today we need a 5-600 Lb to see how it works we won't bottom that one out.

Thanks again to you Lexie, April and Terry for another great year. Three years, three bears and this year my biggest ! 402 lbs ! As usual, the accommodations, the food ( those pickles are to die for ), the company was great. The hunting, what can i say, its the best ! I can't wait for next year !!!

11-Jun-17
Your welcome guys glad u enjoyed the thread and the hunting, getting recuperated after a month of hunting. Helping Allan build his bunk house for his hunters it's going to be a busy summer. I had one guy that never made It this spring if he can't come this fall there will be a tag available, it will be just me and u if anyone's interested send me a pm we will have some fun with the Bears.

I just returned from hunting Manitoba and Saskatchewan.I would like to add my "Thank You" to Lexi and April. Any interested Bear hunter reading this thread, should put "Hunting with Desjardins" on your Bucket List! After hunting many provinces, I can attest to the fact that the experience of hunting next to the Riding Mountains with Desjardins is a Bear hunters Paradise. Thanks again.

Next May will be my first time bear hunting in Manitoba ! I'm going with Alexis and looking for a color phase bear and by the looks of his thread here he's hard to beat, I can't wait for the trek from Michigan to Manitoba very excited! Thanks for the awesome thread Alexis

From: Ibow

Ditto what Grape said. If you're considering Manitoba or any other province for that matter, you'll never find a better hunt than Desjardins. Unbelievable bear hunting but unbelievable hospitality as well. Can't wait to get back next year!
