Who is looking forward to a bear hunt in NB in 2015. Tell when you are heading to woods there and with whom.

There are rumors the snow in the bush may actually be gone bfore the end of the season so things may be interesting..............let's make it a great year and share the details along the way.

I will be with TSI the week of 5/31

Hey Bou,

I spoke with Corey about a week ago, still reporting lot's of snow however, with it warming up it should go quick. Heading up 3rd week of June to hunt with him again this year. Had a great time last year passing on some nice bear before running out of time. Your heading up earlier than usual this year? Be well.

Jeff

My oldest daughter and I are returning to hunt with a buddy June 3rd - 6th in South Central NB. Had lots of bears visiting last year and killed a nice 18 9/16" with my longbow.

Snow is starting to melt from what I hear.

I was up a couple weeks ago with Dave Cole and TSI and took this one with five minutes left on the last night. Seventh bear seen that night. The hunters really let him down that week or the camp could easily have gone 11 for 11. Guys were seeing bear all week, different amount and size in different places, but action daily and the weather was not good for three days in fact only myself and two others of 11 hunted on Tuesday night.

How did we as hunters in camp let him down.........

2 Bow kills (mine and one other)

2 lost bear with bows including an incredible monster that was a known bear. (Millie if you are reading this this was the brute you were hunting last year.........sorry he won't bet there next year unfortunately)

2 gun misses at 14 and 18 yards. I don't hunt with a gun so I did not know this was possible.

1 gun bear wounded and lost at 15 yards (rain really hurt our efforts to recover, but still a lost bear with a slug gun)

3 gun kills

1 gun hunter passed a very makeable 20 yard shot on the first night a big boar just behind the bait site.......... he was waiting for a "perfect" shot at the bait. he kicked himself all week.

The statistics in no way are indicative of the effort and quality of the operation Dave runs. It was great to hunt with him and I will be there next June.

I strongly recomment this operation for someone looking for a solid hunt with full service ammenities and poeple who really are committed to showing the hunter a greast chance at a mature bear.
