It will be tough to break our all time record of 250 set in 2019, but we should crush last years 88 ...... post photos of those 2022 bears. outfitters are welcome to post client kills ..........and any weapon is eligible........except that airbow thing..

in 2011 we had 126

in 2012 we had 158

in 2013 we had 131

in 2014 we had 136

in 2015 we had 204

in 2016 we had 166

In 2017 we had 140

In 2018 we had 238

In 2019 we had 250

In 2020 we had 52 due to COVID impact.

In 2021 we bounced back slightly with 88

Bou I think we just eclipse 2019….. 261

From: Hancock West

Bou, if I have a hunting group of 4 but i'm the only bowsiter does bears other than mine count toward the total? I assume no but wasn't for certain.

From: Bou'bound
08-Apr-22
This is not a normal bowsite elitist thread

We will count any dead bear from any human being with any weapon other than An airbow. ~99% of bowhunters have not ever been been to this site and the membership rules are pretty lax anyway

08-Apr-22
Hoping to be able to contribute to the total count. I believe I will be in camp the same week as you up at Dave's.

Great bear Cory, I was on Kodiak last fall. It's a magical place. What outfitter did you hunt with?

From: kota-man
18-Apr-22
I’ve had a few PM’s. Here are some stats/details: Bear squared an even 10 ft. For the size of bear, the skull was on the smaller side at 27”. I hunted with FreeLance Outdoors (Lance Kronberger) on Kodiak. I had an Aliulik Peninsula tag. I was scheduled to hunt two years ago, but this hunt was one of the only ones to get cancelled from Covid. I had a couple other spring hunts last year, so we rescheduled for this year. Brown Bear on Kodiak has been a “bucket list” hunt for me since my childhood reading about these giant bears in Outdoor life. The hunt was everything I hoped it would be. Lance and his crew are awesome.

Just got back from our annual spring bear camp out. Three days of crap weather, late spring half as many black bear as usual and twice as many grizzlies. The grizzlies are literally eating all the blacks. Saw no yearling cubs and only two new ones.

We managed to kill eight bears with most off us electing to shoot just one tag. Still lots of time to hunt local.

We figure we saw over thirty grizzlies and no cubs. It's a great denning area and they concentrate on the valley bottom right away. But the shear number was ridiculous! We had one big boar circle about thirty yards under us as we were skinning and he moved off about fifty yards and waited for us to finish. I’m sure he was on the carcass as soon as we were out of sight.

Great pics ambush. Enjoy seeing quality pics of dead bear. I haven't hunted spring bear in Canada for years but sure enjoyed it. Only fall bear in MN. Took 2 people last fall. A 14 year old incredible young lady and a nother middle aged lady. The 14 year old shot a 514# and the lady shot a 536#. Both within a mile of each other. 10 and 11 years old. The girls skull Was20 3/16 .the ladies was 20 7 /16. I'm incredibly blessed as I have 2 adjacent landowners that own about 7 miles of riverbottom and allow me (and only me) to play in their sandbox. 7 bear over the past couple years over 20" with one going 21 9/16. All dried skulls.

Our group of 7 saw 75 bears this week in NB. Probably averaged only 5 guys on stand each night. We saw some absolute monsters too. My father killed his first bear. A nice 257# Boar. I took my 3rd with a recurve at 254#.

Great Bears everyone! I had a incredible week in Manitoba at Stickflingers with Ryan, Parker and Chris. One of the hardest working group of guides I have been around. We went 10 for 13 my week with a couple misses and one not recovered unfortunately. I believe almost everyone saw a color phase as well. Great operation and I can’t wait to do it again one day.

Another Stickflingers success story!

First sit, second bear to come in. After watching him for an hour he gave me a perfect opportunity. He squared 7’2” and we green scored his skull (with calipers) at 20 13/16”.

Another 7 footer was taken the first night as well. Camp was on fire this week!

I can’t say enough good things about the Stickflingers crew. Ryan, Parker and David are all first class folks with a treasure trove of bear hunting knowledge between them. I’m heading back up in ‘24.

Mike with his first bear. Quality pictures are very important, at least in my opinion. Pictures in the general area where the animal fell almost always turns out better than back at camp or at the "photo spot." I'll be doing a video on taking quality trophy photos soon. Take the time in the field you'll appreciate it way more. A head lamp works wonders for those night time photos. Play with the angle of the light and see what works best.

My first Bear from my New York property on opening day. Took 11 years to kill one on my land! They liked my corn plot and I had them figured out after lots of scouting Pretty thrilled to kill a bear on my own ground coming into my food plot.
