    Default Spring bear hunting in Canada

    Well it just days away time to pull out the passport and get the rifle ammo ready. Bear hunting in remote Canada wilderness camps is a good way to spend spring hunting time. Who else is on thier way to Canada this spring for Bear?

    Off to hunt on Saturday (but then I live in Alberta!). Not sure about other parts of Canada, but we are allowed two black bears per year, and if you're a resident, the tags are about C$ 16 each. Odds are always good that both will be filled, and we get to take any coyotes or wolves which might be unfortunate enough to run across our paths at no extra charge! Gotta love it!

    Good luck on your hunt. As for me, Im foregoing bear season this year for grander pursuits (Africa). I think next year my Buddy in Victoria (Vancouver Island) will have purchased enough consecutive bear tags to qualify to self Guide a couple Canadian residents. I think Christine and I will have to head out there and bag a couple big costal Blackies!
    The journey is the reward.

    If you brought one of "your" big guns along, please take a video of the outfitters face while you uncase it.
    That would be hilarious!
