Spring 2008 BLACK BEAR

Bearpaw has just completed another successful Spring Bear Season.  We had 29 hunters and harvested 47 bears for another 150 %+ success season.

Our first hunt this year was hampered by cold wet weather as a result of a late April snowfall that slowed bear movement.

From the 10th of May on, there was an abundance of bears on bait with 40 – 45 baits active daily.

The average sightings per hunter was 6, with a low of 4 and a high of 47!

Quality was exceptional with 8 bears exceeding the magic 7 foot mark.  21 Bears were over 6 foot 6 inches and only 6 bears measured under 6 feet.  The average bear taken was 6’4”. 

Colored numbers remained steady with approximately 1/3 of the harvested bears were colored other than black.

Roger Krantz harvested the spring’s largest bear.  A Massive 20 7/8”, 450 pound, 7’9” giant that had eluded us for 2 years.

Mike Thomas put a great pair for bears on the ground.  A seven foot black bear and an awesome 6 and a half foot Cinnamon.

Rod Hollier and Mike Derouen both pulled off the perfect double.  Rod with a big black and a nice brown and Mike with a 7’ brown and 6 and a half foot black.

Few places in North America provide hunters with the opportunity at Bears of this quality.

Tim Peloso harvested a great Pope & Young trophy with Veteran guide Jamie Langlois after 4 nights of being selective and waiting for a true trophy bear.

Gus Congemi took 2 great bears as well as a wolf with his bow.  A feat few people with Bow and arrow tackle have accomplished. 

We are presently 50% booked for 2009 but still have openings in all the 4 weeks available below:
