Well, I just got back this past weekend from my spring bear hunt at Grey Owl Outfitters, in Lynn Lake, Manitoba. This was my second time spending a week there. in 2016, I had a shot opportunity and blew it and had to come back. Dad and I had the time of our lives (again) and were a little more successful. The camp was beautiful, the food was amazing, the fish were biting, and the bears were everywhere. Below are a few pictures from our trip. Had a great time meeting a fellow AT'er (Brent Thei) and his son.

The week started off cold. Sunday morning, the first day of the hunt, we woke up to low 30's and snow. The first night of the hunt, I got skunked, which wasn't too bad because I was too cold to shoot anyway. The second night, things turned around and I had a boar and a sow put on a show.

When I got picked up by the guide on Tuesday night, Dad told me he got a shot on a really nice 6'6" black boar with a white blaze on his chest. The next morning, we found him 63 yards from his set!

The third night, they moved me to a new set. 20 minutes in the stand and I saw a cinnamon body moving through the woods. a few minutes later, he snuck in from behind me and gave me a perfect shot. 6'0" cinnamon boar with a white "bowtie" on his chest.

Overall, we had an amazing week at Grey Owl and David is a great host. This is a great outfitter with lots of bears and absolutely incredible food. I would definitely recommend giving Grey Owl Outfitters a call if your looking for a great hunt, great fishing, and unbeatable food.

Thanks everyone. Taxidermist said about a year to get the rugs completed. Gonna be a longggg wait, but I should have plenty of jerky and backstraps soon to keep me busy until then.
