Smile spring bear hunting

Is everyone getting ready to go spring bear hunting? It seems like forever, but its only 3 months away. Getting new string on the bow now, then I can start shooting.

The popcorn deal looks like the best thing going. I watched a show the other day that the outfitter used it. Hauling out to the bait sites make it so much easier being that much lighter. Put some cooking grease in with it and that ought to keep the bears coming. The problem is with popcorn is making a 1000 pounds of the stuff takes some time and commercial style equipment. Now if you have a movie theatre near by that makes it everyday you might get the manager to give all of yesterdays popcorn. Bag it in big trash bags and you have bait.

This year we thought that we would try Saskatchewan, I think the land that we are hunting gets pretty close to Alberta. Going the last week of May, hope that they are up and moving.

I finally took the plunge and will be going on my first bear hunt this spring. 35 years of being strictly a deer hunter, I always wanted to do an archery bear hunt. I am like a kid at Christmas.....filled with anticipation. Being a novice, I hope I picked the right time. I know deer hunting has good and bad times so I guess bear hunting does as well. I am booked for May 31 - June 4 in northern Alberta

After your first trip, I hope that you will be hooked. It seems that its an addiction for some of us. My husband, daughter, and myself would rather hunt bears than anything else. We get home from one trip and start planning on were to go next. Where ever everyone hunts this spring have fun. and then start planning your fall bear hunt. We'll be going to Ontario again.
