    Would you be interested in a trophy black bear hunt in Manitoba ? Ive got a great guide that harvest 40-50% color phase black bears on 375,000 acres......Any weapon........Its a pure wilderness adventure!

    I have to agree with Maxcam...that being if you want to put the odd's in your favor you need to go a lot further north than Michigan.

    Here is a link to the outfitter we use in Manitoba. If you click on hunting methods thats me with the Chocolate I took with rifle a few years back. Any other questions on this outfitter feel free to ask.

    On the bear hunt here in KY. Correct me if i'm wrong guys but its not a draw. I think all you have to do is buy a permit and hunt in the three counties that F&W says you can hunt bear in.

    Check out They are located in Espanola, Ontario. I went there in September of 2007 and killed a 250lb boar. The guy that runs the place lives in Louisville in the off season. His booth will be at Strader this year.

    Yep that's right. All you have to do is buy the permit and hunt until they close the season.

    Right now I'm still trying to decide if I want to hunt or guide another hunter. I know, I said before that I wouldn't want to kill one. There's almost something sacred about them. The only thing that may change my mind is that they are destroying bowhunting here. They are running deer out of the area. No joke, I saw almost as many bears as I did whitetails this year, not to mention the money they are costing me in cameras, feeders, and corn.

    Oxbow Lodge in Oxbow, Maine. Been there 3 times. Killed one on first trip, couldn't get a clean shot at one on my second hunt, and killed another one on my third trip. Tom and his guides run a top notch operation. They WANT you to be successful. I would recommend them to anyone!
