I'm heading to TSI the week of May 27 for my first bear hunt. Any other bowsiters hunting with TSI this week? I already spoke with Bou'bound (thanks again) about what to expect and bring, etc.

Hopefully, I'll be posting some harvest photos in a couple weeks! Anyone else with experience hunting with TSI is welcome to chime in with info, too. Thanks!

You're in for a treat, Dave and his team know bears and will take care of you. I'm pretty sure you'll be back.

Just looking for a fun week in camp with son and the same group of guys that have made this an annual event from many parts of the states over the past few years. I’m sure we will see a lot of bears and kill a few along the way.

Dad, Ed, and I are in Bangor waiting to cross the boarder in the morning. Rich is also here in Bangor, headed that way tomorrow. Going to be a great week as Bou said, with a great bunch of guys to spend bear camp with.

That week 7 of 10 killed and one took two. Most amazing stay of the year ............ not a single bear wounded and lost through the first 4 weeks.
