April 1st 2011 marks the opening of yet another Spring Bear season in BC. If you weren’t lucky enough to draw a Grizzly tag you’ll be left with the next best option and that’s Black Bear hunting. April is still a little early to go out and expect a ton of action but the odd bear can be found and you can be sure they’ll have a fairly decent cape if you plan on making a rug.
This will be the first year that I am going to be bringing my sons along with me Cole (7) and Beau (5). We plan on pounding the logged out slashes behind our house as throughout deer season we spotted a few decent bears and May of last year there was definitely two big boars hanging around so we’ll be making a play for one of them. It should be a great learning experience for them.

So what are your Bear hunting plans this year?
Hunting season is almost completely over in BC now. I don;t know how you did last year. How about an update? Any plans for 20123?
You are right! I do have some updates to post. My fall season wasn’t much this year as our newborn daughter was born with a health condition requiring hospitalization away from home for a few months. I did manage to get a couple blacktails though.
