I've been chatting with a bear outfitter buddy in Alberta and we've been trying to figure out what would work up north. I like the beans in the spring and summer months and then till the fields and plant turnips for fall and winter.
This works for us but frost is definitely an issue for you guys. I haven't yet...but plan on doing some research to see what would work best.
Why shoot on the last day what you wouldn't shoot on the first?
