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...
