Spent all of last week way up in Northern Maine, near Presque Isle, chasing Black Bear with my recurve!!! 5 of us from Mo, 3 from Conn, 1 from Pa, and 4 from NY. Fun to hunt with folks from such different "cultures" than Mid Mo!!! The weather was horrible, way too hot for much bear movement, but only 2 hunters didn't see bear. 4 were killed, mine was the only bowkill.

If you're looking for a bear hunt, Tony at Squapan Mountain Outfitters will hook you up!!!



All the comforts, except AC....lol



We took my buddies rig, that he had installed an inverter on, for the deep freezer!!! Worked great!!!

Beautiul country up there....



Lots of tater fields.....They spray the tops just prior to harvest.

My mankilller weighed in at 125 lbs, which, according to the guides is a good average size. They do kill bears over 300-400 lbs, but they are definitely the exception...I was going to just use a switch, but figured the bow would be easier!!!





Here's one of the brothers from Conn....His was biggest in camp, at 217 lbs

Also brought 10 of them home!!!



Another of the brothers, around 117 lbs I think



Was a hoot......Can't wait to kill another one!!!!

Manitoba. Should be a blast. I have been looking at the Alaskan back country hunts but they are well out of my $$ range.
