This is an example of our Early May weather. This early May 2017 storm was a clipper out of the West. Weather at this time is very unpredictable, so we start our hunts in the middle of May rather than May 1rst, opening day. Prime time only!!!

***We offer a "SEMI GUIDED" hunt. Semi guided is when the hunter supplies his own transportation to and from sites to camp. Baits are from 1.5 miles to 55 miles from camp. Hunter skins own bear and helps in the tracking and retrieving. Bait own sites after baiters show the sites to hunters. We supply ample bait through out the week. Hunters cook own meals. These reasons mentioned are why price is $1450.00. Semi Guided hunts are not for everyone.

***A guided hunt is where guides supply transportation, skinning and bait the sites for you. Meals included. These are the reason for higher cost of guided hunt. $2700.00 and up.

It’s always more than just the the trophy pics - you guys always tell and show more about what goes on behind the scenes and what goes into a successful hunt.

So yes, this above post is of just another Spring Bear hunt to most of you but it was only our second in 19 years!!!

Ontario opened up a " Pilot Spring Bear Hunt" in 2016. Going to last until Spring 2020. Then the Province will take all the data and do a study on the 5 years of spring hunting. In 2021, they will decide whether to keep the hunt or not keep it. So, Spring 2020 might just be the last Spring hunt in Ontario or it might continue. Who knows what the Ontario Government will do!!!

***Data released in Fall 2017....In Eastern and Southern Ontario the "harvest" for 2016 *RESIDENT* bear hunting was over 5000 bears. In NW Ontario the resident Harvest was about 465. We are in the NW part of Ontario, about 1200 miles from Toronto. **VERY FEW residents** bear hunt in these woods in the N Western part of Ontario. NW Ontario "Non resident" bear hunters took over 1650 bears. So more Non Residents parttake in Bear hunting in the NW than residents.

***Ontario Outfitters are regulated as to how many Non resident bear hunters they can take.

*** the Ontario Gov up dated population estimates says there are approximately 105,000 or more bears in Ontario. Still the 2nd highest bear population in Canada!!! 2nd to British Columbia. Quebec is running 3rd at about 75,000 or more bears.

Idea is to start baiting when snow nearly disappears. I'll get all the bait mixed, new treestands put together, vehicles and ATV's serviced for the Spring hunt .

Hunters don't want to put up with any snow as they just went through a cold, snowy winter. So I book later to give them better odds for an awesome, Spring Bear hunting experience.

Got back yesterday with a load of bait from "LUCKY SEVEN BEAR BAIT" of Cambridge Mn.

He gets truckloads of bear bait delivered to him daily. Pellets....barrels....or totes. Loads onto your truck. He even has trucks delivering to Ontario at the end of April. The more orders delivered on the truck to Ontario, the lower everyones delivery charge is.

Ibow, I also click on "ALL" the outfitters threads. Nice to see the great work they put forth and success they are rewarded with!! Alex Desjardin is an Outfitter I would like to meet. He has such a great attitude about everything!!! When I am at shows I talk to a few of his hunters and they have GREAT things to say about him and his Outfitting!!

Thanks Ibow,its above zero here each day, but not much. Good thing is we have not been "Blessed" with any `NEW` snow since last of February. Melting each day here.

Also, we are lucky to have Bowsite.com to allow us outfitters to show case our hunts, day by day. Pat has such a good setup for pics etc. .I would recomend Bowsite.com to Outfitters who offer archery any day!!! Sponsorship is well worth it. Thanks Pat and C. for allowing me the opportunity!!

When do you anticipate to start baiting Chris, you had said mid-April?

From: spike buck
18-Apr-18
Ya I did say around April 15th. But start date is on Friday April 20th. We have 5 days of double digit temps starting tomorrow finnally. We have a couple of areas that have been plowed all winter for logging operations, which will give us access. Still 18 inches or more snow out there might need snowshoes. Will give the baits plenty of time to get active.We are chomping at the bit right now. Cant wait!!!!

From: spike buck

We will be setting up baits tomorrow for our 2018 Spring season. Was 53F today with warmer temps tomorrow. I will also start my new thread on our 44th year of Bear Hunting at Pine Acres Bear Camp after the days done.

Good luck to ALL other sponsors and their hunters!!!
