I hunted with Vic during late Sept.early Oct.1999 weather was a little warm which was unusual for N.S.at this time of year, but we saw a lot of big bear sign.The first day I took a large Eastern Coyote about a 70 pounder on one of the off woods roads we traveled.The bait sites were visited everyday by some very Large Bears,tossing the heavy timbers and barrells around like falling leaves.I sure learned these big bears are stealthy and super sensitive,moving through the forest like ghosts.I didn\\\\\\\'t even hear the huge bear when he appeared at the bait site!I just looked up and there he was,as (big as a Volkswagon),pushing the barrel over.I had to move to get my 7mm mag which created a slight squeak,and the bear looked right at me.He turned his head back toward the barrel in a smooth motion,and then into a shuffling gait and out of the site.After about 30 min.he returned entering in a different direction.I was really surprised because I didn\\\\\\\'t hear any twigs or limbs break.He walked right into the bait site,stopped behind some trees and looked toward the stand.I could see his large nose pulsating to locate the alien in his woods.after what seemed to be an hour,about 15 sec.he just walked right out of the site keeping the barrel and trees between himself and me.I Had My Chance And Missed It. Vic and his brother Ross worked hard and put me in the right place at the right time.They were up early and out late working the bait sites.They let me work with them on the sites and in doing so I saw lots of big bear sign,as we traveled the back roads we saw lots of deer tracks,some huge ones,where blinds were going to be placed.We saw pheasants,Partridge in the woods also.This was a Great Trip!These are great people.Marie and Sissy made sure I was \\\\\\\"fed well\\\\\\\"The Lodge is located on a lake full of trout so bring your fishing gear.I plan to return next year to get that big bear,a big buck,catch a fish dinner and shoot some some grouse!!
