    Time to hype up some bear hunters..

    Well, season started a few weeks ago now.. snow yesterday. BUT the bears are already out, spotted around Merritt, Princeton and Kamloops.. first weekend of May will be my first foray out this season... last two seasons were a gimme, as there were only 4 days spent bear hunting and 5 bears went down.. here’s a couple pictures to get people excited.

    this year I have some new bear medicine, the last year I was using Winchester deer season copper.. bears DRT but, I decided to try something new... Hornady ETX 165 gr... essentially a round nose hollow point solid copper GMX...


    couple quick snaps of my last years tags to get some hunters that are on the fence motivated to get out there ! Both bears taken on a week night, after work within 20 minute drive of town.

    Oh and both bears were DELICIOUS.. only have moose left from last year.

    Since I started hunting in 2017, chasing bears has been my favourite hands down.. I look forward to each spring more than anything else. Fingers crossed this year is even better !

    thus far, yes. With the exception of steaks /chops.

    But I much prefer bear burgers, stew, roasts and smoked meats. I’m a strange man

    also I’ll see what I still have for pictures of the brown one, ended up breaking my phone that hunt so I believe I only had the few I sent to my hunting buddy.

    Indeed they are waking up, saw one in its den last week but it was awake. Just starting to see the green grass at the bottom of the valleys, the snow yesterday didnt help but these warm sunny days will be getting them active.

    You’re adding to the excitement here for sure. It’s my 2nd spring season and I’ve not been as excited to hunt an animal before. Got two spots picked out and scouted , four weekends set aside. Really hoping to get it done!
    thanks for sharing the photos, beautiful bears
