    May long black bear around Quesnel?

    So we're taking the kids out of school for a couple days and making it an extra long long may long

    I've hunted east of Quesnel for Bears around Barkerville but usually not until end of may.. first week in June or second week of June depending on snow levels

    This time because of the boys time off we're stuck being unflexible... I was thinking of driving out west of quesnel setting up camp and then driving out of there exploring... we ve had good luck out west before although it was later in may again..

    Any suggestions we have endless bear tags and no game meat in the freezer.. not looking for rugs or mounts just want to whack and stack to keep our food bill down and save some moose..

    Unexpected wealth will arrive. Remember he is the richest, who is content with the least, for contentment is the wealth of nature. Although you look for riches, realize that wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants. When riches come don't forget that man's true wealth is the good he does in the world. So when opportunity knocks, grab it. It is easy at any moment to resign the possession of great fortune, to acquire it is difficult and arduous.

    Black bear Sows with cubs have been seen but no boars yet. They are hungry. No grass yet to bring the boars out!
    1 Grizzly is out. Seen tracks.

    400 and 200 Rds make a nice loop and hold bears.

    bears are out everywhere now, anything that dens longer than now is dead. The next month is best bear hunting of the year, get out and they are road side eating grass

    Smithers hot spots- Nilkitkwa rd, Telkwa River rd, Fulton South Rd are good early season.

    Pack a boat and cruise to Rainbow Alley, catch a pile of rainbows on the fly, then drive home at dusk and see multiple bears. Cast and Blast
