Flood waters peaked this week in New Brunswick but still a lot of flooding yet.This is why early hunts in New Brunswick are risky.Bears are tending but are moving into grass as the water recedes.Things should be much better in a couple weeks.mainly small bear s tend with the larger ones more focused on greenery this week but that’s normal.

got back home yesterday late and thought id give a lil report about hunt like i yearly do... Ive been with some of the best outfitters in bear hunting from Montana to northern Canada and ill have to say my time with Lloyd and Rhonda Gates was AT trophy hunters outfitters was at the very top in all regards! My 11 year old son came along and for his first experience i couldn't have asked for a better time! Didn't harvest this year,but it wasn't due to Llyods lack of outfitting! the big big big bear were there, the camera's was showing them daily, just after legal shooting time...wind was a issue all week swirling and not being consistent, but that's hunting. over all excellent time! the size the bear on cameras and on every bait i was on, along with other hunter (which passed several, looking for as he stated a 600pder!) was absolutely impressive! Next year...God Willing!

First bear taken with single string.
Five guys, ten tags, eight dead bears. Last two tags held out for monsters. No bait, just put on miles and try to find ones that stand their ground till you get close enough. The eighth bear belongs to a Bowsiter and I’ll let him post it if he wants.

Dave Clark, PA 18 11/16” green score. Wanted a medium size color phase for showroom in his newly built taxidermy shop. This one showed up first day of hunt. He is now our official skinner and joe boy. A couple days ago he crawled into an abandoned beaver lodge to check it out and found a bear snoozing in there. Came out a helluva lot faster than he did going in. Bear refused to come out with people jumping on the lodge and hurling insults at it. Spring shenanigans gotta love it.

I finally was able to get my Quebec baits out last weekend... going up on June 1 to hunt....

I wasn’t sure if I was actually gonna be able to get up this year...My wife is going through breast cancer treatment and I just had a prostrate cancer scare and after the biopsy I ended up spending a week in the hospital with ecoli blood infection....let’s hope things get better...

Thank you Scoot. She has been practicing for two years to get to the 40lb minimum. Her second bear died 40 feet up in a tree and did not fall. The guide had to climb the tree and push it down.

Was able to take my best bear to date two nights ago. Did it solo, and the skinning job alone after dark was a bit of a mental game with other bears around. Fun hunt! Congrats to everyone's success!

Ok so I ended up being a partial liar on this thread! Sorry! I made the comment way back that I was going to be skipping baiting for bears this year as I was just too busy with kids and little league and our kids hunting camp. Well crazy story but had a kid from my kids hunting camp call me and said he had an issue with his "Senior Project". He was doing his project on training hound dogs and was going to take one of his teachers. The teacher cancelled at the last minute and he was calling to ask if I'd be willing to go with them. I did and it worked out well. Good Idaho bear just over 19 4/8" green score. Should be a good P&Y after drying. I'm pretty happy, but this kids senior project just cost me about $2,000 in taxidermy bills.....LOL! The last pic I will post is of a surprise we found lodged in his spine when we were boning out the backstraps. Someone from years past is talking about the bigun that got away! ;-)

Quebec... 225/250 # sow Shot her thinking it was the boar that was breeding the sow that was feeding in front of me....She walked in at last light.

It was an odd year in Quebec this year I didn’t have one giant on any of the baits( first time in 9 years) and not many bears around...I feel fortunate to take this one...also she was 1/4” off 18” for a sow in Quebec that’s pretty big

Idaho public land DIY.......Deerslayer and I set this bait 3 years ago and the thermals have been frustrating.......Huntman let me sit one of his baits and I saw another good one like this and was re-motivated ......we talked about going all out on scent control and it payed off!

Good guys with a wealth of information and experience on this site, woohoo!
