Side by Side mayhem

Been a late spring here. Got my side by side stuck at my hunt camp a while back and left it as I had no need for it until this spring. Typical year would have been no problem. Well can't delay any longer as I need it on a job site for Monday. A wee bit of a challenge. On the initial uphill try the 2...

2017 Mounts

Got 3 out of 4 items back from the taxidermist today. Still waiting on a bear rug from the bear I took. My personal favourite is the bear my oldest son took - his first bear ever: Before: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4340/37442415661_db4c1b3d89_k.jpg After: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/787/26228...

Re: Scorpion Optics

Do not have that specific scope but I have similar price point Scorpion models on a 17 hmr and 17 WSM. No complaints. Not really high end or anything but acceptable performance and good value. Use them regularly and there is a particular wild grape patch at my camp that is thick with grouse when the...

Sheds and Floods

Out and about today: https://farm1.staticflickr.com/810/40098092805_f21cc0323c_k.jpg Lots of flood evidence from a rainstorm and thaw we had back in February. This is about 100 yards from the edge of the river and vertically is about 8 feet higher than the normal water level. It is also about 10 yar...

Re: I want to go bear hunting

Whole bunch of variables,

Spring or Fall?
Budget?
How far are you willing to travel?
Assuming you want a xbow hunt?

Not all the outfitters offer spring hunting. Outfitters can range in price from $700 for an econo hunt to $3,000+ for all in fancy/dancy. You did say reasonably priced so $1500?

Works great.

When that's not an option I use an ice fishing toboggan with teflon runners.

I use a Matrix 405 with 19 inch Zombie Slayer bolts and 125 grain fixed blade Montec G5s. Scope wise I use a Vortex Viper XBR. Best of luck on your hunt.

Re: Black Bear as tabel fair

If you get a small or medium sized bear that has not been eating garbage or too much fish it is the best tasting meat there is IMO. We do bear roasts every year at both Thanksgiving and Christmas alongside the turkey and ham. Without exception the bear gets eaten first. The people doing the eating a...
