We kicked off our New Brunswick spring bear hunting season for 2014 here at Long Lake Adventures yesterday evening, May 26 and we started off with a bang- literally! Three of of hunters took fine black bears. After an unusually long winter here in northern New Brunswick (there’s still a bit of snow in some places) the bears have been out and about with lots of activity around bait sites. Weather remains on the cool side but on the bright side the black flies and mosquitoes haven’t come to life yet in much in the way of numbers; of course we expect that to change within the next few days. The weather forecast for the rest of the week shows temperatures warming up with only light winds and very little rain so this should make for pretty good hunting conditions for both the hunters and the bears for the balance of the week.
