Big Black Bear down in Canada - all on video....

Just got back from New Brunswick, Canada - tag filled.

Second night took this black bear with a white V on it's chest. Taken with my compound, shooting Ram Cat broadheads, really did their job! We had two cameras running, we were able to get some awesome video - putting that show together now.

Night before at the stand.


Back again as we came to the stand.....









Went with a new outfitter - Gray Rapids Adventures.

Very nice Chris. Congrats. Did you switch outiftters for a change of pace or deeper than that?

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Yes - went with a new outfitter, second year in. He is a younger guy, no web page yet, but hungry to prove himself, and he sure did.

Gray Rapids Adventures - Does not have a web page yet, but the cheapest you will find in Canada for a black bear. Anyone want his info, send me a PM.

Re: Big Black Bear down in Canada - all on video....

Thanks and good luck! Most important tip - BRING A THERMACELL!!!!! The bugs were really starting to crank up when we were there. There were 2 of us in the stand and we both had thermacells cranking for hours when the bear came in. Don't worry about them scaring off the bear, they won't. If you are using a gun, I would bring a head net too. If using a bow, I would just go with the thermacell. We had the one come through the thermacell every so often, but just here and there. If we didn't have those, we would have not be able to get the bear.

It was starting to warm up nice, you should have some great weather.

Who are you using when you go up?
