Baiting has begun left some cams in last spring for some new pics to start the season.
My son Hayden has sure grown. He drove to most baits so I could take pics. Was a fun first day.
You guys are lucky to have little snow. We still have about 18 inches on the ground. Good luck with your Spring season!!
Thanks looks like it will be all gone soon.
Nice pics Craig. Soon it will be happening!
Can't believe how quick he's growing up. Good thing I'm still a kid at heart or that picture might start to make me feel old. Lol.!!
Yes it’s happening I’m pumped. Yes Joe unreal he’s not much younger than I was when you started coming out?? lol love it tho. Can’t wait to see you again.

Awesome stuff, we will be out baiting next week!
Great pics Craig... spring is here in Manitoba! Happy Easter!
It was a beautiful day here yesterday today is looking great too.
Heading out today to check out some baits on the new huge area I got permission in. Hopefully see some giants on cam
Me and Hayden went to check the baits out they were hit. That’s pretty quick for brand new baits looks promising.
Is that little cinnamon looking bear above (4/18/19, 3:35pm) missing a right rear foot? I love these bear pic threads.
Jl I don’t think so but will keep you posted if it does.
Great pictures Craig...There use to be a couple guys a little to the west of you that took pictures of the Bears in the Spring. If you run into them, see what's up!!??
Lol I think uncle has some posted now
Great pictures ! I love those color phase !! Keep them coming
Beautiful hide on that chocolate. He'll be in trouble for sure. Good luck to you and your hunters this year.
Had a good evening checking baits. Bears are hitting hard. Should have some fun this season.
Headed out to do the rest today.
You have some nice colours in a couple of your bears...Have a great hunt Craig
Awesome stuff Craig. Do you think they are hitting them harder than they were last year?
Rattling junkie yes the bear population is doing great.
That bear in the cuddeback pics is a good one. Hope whoever sits there has some patience. He's one that would be worth waiting for.
Wow Craig, you’ve really got quite the assortment of colors. The bears are really hammering your baits this Spring. Your hunters are going to have a great spring! Really enjoying your thread!
Thanks guys but yes there’s actually a lot of big boys this past week I’m headed out tonight to fill my north baits. Should have some nice new pics later. 5 sleeps and the guests are here as my son would say lol.
When are your first hunters Craig?
Bears are hungry and lots of them getting excited.
Had this little cinnamon in the tree while I was baiting seen 2 bear tonight
The big boys are all over this year.
Wow some very nice bears
Well guys today is the day everyone arrives let the fun begin.

Great pic Craig - some happy hunters there! Congrats to you & the hunters.
Congrats to all. First ones on the board I think.

What a way to kick off the season congratulations to all. Two beautiful bears shiny coats both would would make great full mounts.
From: Plum lake
Off to a great start. Good luck the rest of season
Very nice bear's ! Congrats to the hunters and to you also Craig ! Really like that blonde ! Did you by chance get the blonde on the scale ? If so what was it's weight ?
Sure do he was 279lbs nice bear. Day 2 no one shot but lots of activity.
Ladonna shot this beautiful blond yesterday morning
Wow! Those are some beautiful colored bears. Thanks for the post!
Wow Craig that's a great blonde !! How much did Ladonna's weigh ? You definitely have to have some Happy hunters !
Well last day 2 hunters left both seen bears last night let’s hope they connect today. Matt connected with this big boy 3rd night.
Bill smoked this awesome black patience is key.
Well it was a great week everyone saw plenty of bears unfortunately Ted our last hunter was waiting for the big guy that gave him the slip but that’s hunting.
These 2 first time bear hunters were pretty pumped with there bears. April waited it out for a nice black passing on multiple colours all week. Cassie (California dreams) first big game harvested. He shot this bear the first 15 minutes of his hunt with his father in law beside him. He shot it with a antique gun from the early 1900s.
Great first week Craig congrats to you and all the hunters ! Very nice bear's now get some rest for round 2 !!
Alrighty it’s a beautiful day in Manitoba. 2 guys have arrived already let the fun begin. 5 more in a couple hours.
Great first week Craig - congrats to you & your hunters!
Well this week has been nothing more than fun. We got some bears down and a few left to go on the last day. Let’s hope the bears cooperate.
Rick and Tim killed there first ever bears on the second night.
Tony tagged this guy tonight let’s hope for another one or 2 before dark.
Mark finished the week off with this dandy at last light on the last day. Spring season is over for this year. Great times and great people make it fun. Cheers.
Great job Craig... you & your hunters have had a great year! Are you going to do a few fall hunts?
Yes sir 4 fall hunts tags are sold. Only have a few left for next spring.
2 weeks gone already about 300 bushels in bear belly lol. It was fun.
Congrats....sure seems early to be done when most are just getting into the thick of it?
