Just heard the bears are starting to come out up north.
People are winding up to start baiting, etc.
Just got a huge dump of snow in a spring storm. When it melts there should be some hungry bears running around.
Wish I knew a decent outfitter I could suggest. I'll ask around.
Yep, I saw my first piles of bear crap at work a week and a half ago before the big dump of snow. It was still spring back then and it was probably flooded out of its den. Definitely a sign of things to come.

That end of the road hunt with abundant wildlife to film sounds perfect for you and your wife Jamie. It might be worth a look see and some reference checking. Seven days and two bear seems pretty reasonable for $2600.
You might inquire with one of our members, Kelly Ross. He is a Canadian guide and outfitter. I haven't hunted with him myself but have corresponded at length with him regarding hunting in general. I imagine he can put you on the kind of hunt you are looking for, if not he might have a referral for you.
I would like to black bear hunting is Ontario too, since it's a short drive from where I currently live. Ontario is very beautiful, the bear hunting can be hit over miss depending on a number of factors. Just ask Skyline. Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia are better bets. Quebec has black bear hunting too...hit and miss action.
I went to Ontario a while back and we picked the wrong year to go, there were blueberries everywhere and bears hardly moved.
