    Bear down! There was at least one left in Region 3! I'll post a report later. I'm tired.

    Re: 2023 Bear derby Official!

    I was out fishing yesterday on my favourite alpine lake. Snuck up on a good size boar (fairly certain it was male) feeding in the creek at one end. Paddling my solo Rob Roy canoe I'm able to sneak up on critters occasionally. There was a stiff westerly breeze & I came in downwind so he was oblivious to my presence. I reckon range to have been ~ 40 meters & was able to watch him for a good 5-10 minutes until he sauntered into the trees. Got a good look at him with my binos. Healthy fella.





    It was an ideal day for a paddle & I came home with 4 trout, 2 rainbows, 2 brookies. This little gem of a lake never fails to produce. Also caught glimpses of a few deer on the way home.

    Six bears (one boar, two females (one with 3 cubs) yesterday our back pasture. Two years ago a rogue bear (unusual appearance with smallish body and longest legs ever seen on a black bear) hunted the pasture and slurped up 6 newborns. My rifle at a friends. Prepared this year. However, very few blacktails since. Daily de-forestation by corp thug Timber Waste and last year's hemorrhagic virus has taken a helluva toll. Three years ago every day up to 21 BTs grazing back there. Gone.

    I dropped a bear with my bow last weekend - the first animal I've take with a bow and the first animal I've taken with my grandfather in nearly 16 years!
    I’ll try and post some more pictures and a story when time allows.
    I didn't remember to take a photo with the tag and bear shown, so it won't be an entry into the derby, but I hope it inspires others to get out there and get after bears. There was lots of bear sign where we were and things were starting to 'heat up'.

    Re: 2023 Bear derby Official!

    Next Friday wraps this up folks!
    hopefully a few of you get to make use of the last of the season here.
    I will give members 7 days from season end to get their posts up and entries done.

    From there we will do the draws and see who wins this years humble little derby.

    I unfortunately have only got to get out hunting 3 times and only saw a couple small bears and sows but it looks like some of you are making the best of it for sure !



    edit* had wrong date.
