This was my second bear hunt, and my first with Dave at TSI. Although the late spring had bear movement to a minimum, everyone had a chance at a bear and I was the only one out of 6, to not harvest a bear. I had a slam dunk opportunity on one sit, at a large sow, but I was holding out, which caused me to eat tag soup for a second time. Dave runs a top notch camp, to say the least. What was more impressive, is how hard he works to get you a bear. He has a lot of land (beautiful country), and he covers every bit of it. There was no doubt Dave has some very large bears, and I cant wait to go back and get another crack at one. I would highly recomend using Dave Cole for your next trip to NB.
Thankyou Kevin for the kind words.I enjoyed our hunt together as well and always respect a hunters personal goals as thats what makes it a challenge.Just killing bears sometimes isnt that hard but getting the right bear is what hunting is all about.Ill say it again good people make for good times.TSI
We had several days of high winds that definitely played a factor in the bear movement.
