We went South to get a load of Bear Bait at Lucky Seven in Cambridge. Me and Ben went on and conquered Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs Co. Was a 12.8 mile walk one way. A great way for the us guides to keep in shape for bear, wolf and deer season.

No worries, Saxon ran the baits while we were gone. Still 3 weeks to season.

I will be doing a run of 17 baits this afternoon. Will have a bunch more pictures tonight, I hope!! Not many berries of any type. Baits are doing great right now. Season starts Tuesday August 15th. Bugs are TERRIBLE. Horse, Deer flys as are mosquitoes and Black Flies. Worse than this past spring. All hunters coming up to camp be prepared for them!!!

Your bait Styks!! You get same bait as Spring. Now you can plan your strategy before you get here. Creek is down, easy to get across. Bait is extremely active. Multiple bears hitting. Styks, you can arrive early and set your own stand if you prefer. *** thinking of changing name of this bait to Mosquito bait!!! *** make sure you bring your helmet for your ATV Styks.

Ontario requirements to hunt Bears are as follows: Must produce a previous gun hunting license from your home state or an Ontario`s hunting version Outdoors Card. Cost $9.00.*** Must have solid hunter orange hat and vest. Must wear from truck to treestand and then can remove once in stand. Bears can see colour.*** soft bow or gun case to bring into stand. Guns MUST be unloaded and encased at a half hour after sunset.*** Those bringing ATV`S must have a helmet on.

Bear license cost is about $245.00. Export permit to get bear out of province is $35.00.

Other than US hunters, A CITIES permit is required for hunters bringing their bear back into their country ie: Australia. Also an Export permit.

Wolf hunters need an export permit and CITIES to get their pelt into the US. I will acquire your CITIES before you leave for any bear or wolf. If a bear hunter needs a CITIES permit, you must tell me a head of time before your arrival to Camp.

Questions call: 1-807-221-9793. Thanks, Chris.

I have pictures of this small sow from 3 years ago on different bait. She is about 8 years old. White patch tells me this. I have yearly pics of her. I know of her producing 2 litters since she showed up first time in 2015.

From the FWIW file on barrel strategy. If it hasn't been mentioned before, if you have the opening in the barrel on the end vs the side, you can then prop (chain/cable) the barrel up at a 45+ degree angle next to a tree or stump. By doing that, you will force the bear to stand up to stick his head or paw into the barrel to get food. That will offer more shots for the hunter. If the barrel is laying down, the bear will lay down.

All new hunters in camp instantly ask when they arrive "where is the famous rock". Letter from OMNRF states I will have same tags as the last 19 years.

Chris, Are success rates usually higher in spring or fall?

In the fall we have to compete with natural foods. Fall hunts are conducted in much warmer temps than spring. Usually not much for bugs in the Fall. Bears are heavier. Overall, Falls bear hunts are a lot more work on the outfitters than Spring hunts. But I enjoy preparing for the Fall bear hunters!!

Frank, I'll give you my answer after a few more spring hunts!!

Fall hunters can turn a bear nocturnal very easy. If they keep their cell phones away, stop taking pictures of lesser bears and listen to the guides on how to rebait their own sites, they will be successful!!!

I really enjoy spring hunts but I have learned how to be successful with fall hunts. Not all hunters are successful spring or fall, but it isn't because we didn't try hard!!

From 1974 to 1998, we conducted spring hunts. Rene Lavoie owned the camp during that time. I was the baiter throughout those years. Since I took over the camp from my dad I have changed pretty well everything. Ontario has regulated the amount of hunters outfitters can take. I believe the OMNRF are going in the right direction and I can actually say I have NEVER seen this many bears in the 43 years of Ontario bear hunting.

Wanna hear a story..... well it was a trip of a life time, from thinking my buddy and I could track a bear in the bush without bear whisperer and realizing the bear wasn't dead and quite possibly wanted a piece of one of us! The 5th day of the hunt I chose to leave my cell phone in the truck and bear whisperer was right (which is kinda rare) I killed! We met some really great people in camp with us that loved to drink a lot of beer! Bear whisperer treated us like family, he yelled at me, told me I was wrong, and called me a liar when I called him and said I shot a bear!!! We learned one valuable lesson this week also, DONT SKIN BEAR ON HIS PICNIC TABLES! This is my 3rd bear camp I have been to and I wouldn't recommend any other camp to go to! Bear whisperer knows how to as he would say FIND BEAR!!! His wife put us on a ton of walleye to keep us busy through the day! Was a trip of a life time!!! Thanks again BEAR WHISPERER

Randy of Grand Rapids Michigan bought a Timber Wolf and a Bear license. Set him up on Double Dam Bear bait for bear. Wolves were running up and down the trail into his bait so we sacrificed his bear bait and turned it into a wolf bait. Hoping we were doing the right thing.

First day on new wolf bait he saw nor heard nothing. Second day, today, at 5:30 he heard a Wolf let loose a deep howl about 75 yards from his treestand. After a few minutes a whole pack started howling and yipping all around him.

There he was, the animal of his dreams. After waiting a minute or so he had his broadside shot and took it. Wolf jumped and run leaving an awesome blood trail. He took the picture above. We went out for a look at 9:00pm.

Thanks guys. This was Randy's second chance at a wolf. First trip he never saw a wolf, but was persistant and tried again. Tagged out on the 3rd day, Sept 27. His son is also wolf hunting. Seen wolves 2 out of 3 sits. Trying to get one also with bow, no good ethical shot yet. Said if he had a rifle would have one by now. Maybe tonight.
