SPRING 2005 BLACK BEAR UPDATE

Bearpaws spring Black Bear season, our 13th since moving to Peace River, was once again exceptionally good. 46 Hunters harvested 68 Bears for another 150% success.

We had 10 seven foot bears taken, the largest by Jack Armstrong 20 9/16 Pope and Young giant taken with veteran guide Chris Gilbert.

Wet conditions produced some extremely tough conditions for guides and hunters especially in remote bear bait locations.
