Grin and Bear It: Planning your hunt

Planning a black bear hunt often a painstaking, long drawn out event that involves researching outfitters, contacting references, arranging for lodging and transportation, and choosing the proper weapon.

IMG_5703 (640x495)

Most people must apply for tags by lottery depending on location, but did you know that if you go through an outfitter in Ontario, Canada you are GUARANTEED a tag?!  With that in mind, let’s visit the outfitter planning phase.

North Western Ontario is renowned for not only population but size of black bear.  In the last 3 years of our hunts, we have had 44 hunters.  Of those 44, 33 harvested 6 spotted and passed up and 5 did not spot  Pretty impressive stats.  We go a step further when we can boast that over 45% were 300lb+ with 8 being over the 400lb mark and our record (taken last year) was 475lb (dressed weight) and squared out at 7′

Whether you choose an outfitter (suggested for first timers) or set up your own hunt, be prepared to start planning at least as early as a year prior.  Do you have your area picked?  Do you know the native food sources? What was the weather pattern like this hunt season?  Were the bears active and what was the harvest from the season(s) prior to your arrival?

A good outfitter will have all of this information readily available as well as a list of references.  That list should include people that did and did not get their bears.  It should include multiple years and an honest overview. You need to know exactly what to expect when you arrive and during your hunt.

Patterning the animal by baiting is often preferred up here in the boreal forest as spot and stalk is very unlikely with our dense forest and thick canopy.  The bonus to baiting is the ability to cull the size and sex necessary to help maintain and manage the population.  Often times, in our area, those that spot and stalk often take the first animal they see as it may be the only one and most refuse to pass up the opportunity 😦

SAM_0025 (640x480)

Baiting and sitting a stand may seem like a ‘canned hunt’ but as most can attest to, it can be a grueling experience that will test your fortitude.  Most first time bear hunters assume (incorrectly) that if you feed them, they will come…..while that is often the truth, bears are as individual as people and even with food, there is no guarantee of compliance on the animal’s part….remember, you are dealing with a wild creature and trying in 14 days or less to train it to your will.  Those that have children or pets know that training anything can be a very difficult task but consistency is key!

When planning your hunt, ensure that you are prepared for the task at hand.  Don’t think that just because you showed up that the bear is going to get the memo.  Be prepared to sit that stand!  You cant harvest a bear from your cabin/tent/motel.

When you contact potential outfitters, ensure that they have answers to all of your questions and they are engaged with your plight.  They should be just as focused on you getting a bear as you are.  Your outfitter is your link to the area as well as in most cases in charge of ‘conditioning’ your bear prior to your arrival.  A good outfitter will be promoting consistency with baiting (by example of course).  We bait each and every day to ensure cycles and patterning is noted.

As mentioned earlier, bears are unpredictable to some extent and a bait that could have been hitting each time it was checked (hopefully daily) could quiet down for a day or two.  Be patient, if you trust your outfitter they will help you through this phase and often have backup plans including alternate baits that may be still consistent.  Ensure that your outfitter is the type that cares enough to keep up with you and your hunt and puts your success as a priority.

No hunt is guaranteed but what you can guarantee is that doing your homework can save you the disappointment of an unfulfilling hunt, bear or not!

Until next time….When the opportunity presents itself, Grin and Bear it!

Moose Hamburgers grilled on the Barbeque. Mmm Good!!

One of our favorite summer foods, moose hamburgers!
When having a gathering of friends on the weekend, you could cook up barbequed burgers for everybody. I don’t know about you and your friends but a friendly gathering around the BBQ and campfire is something we love to do. We are fortunate to live in the country away from the city core so on occasion our gatherings will include a campfire. Sitting around the fire is a great way to relax and get caught up with the goings on with your friends… Don’t you think?

Everyone loves Summer Barbeques, and Moose Hamburgers on the grill are no exception so we thought we would share how to cook moose hamburgers. We added a Pasta and Potato Salad and were set.

bigmooseburger

How to Make Moose Burgers

Ingredients (makes 16 patties):

  • Moose Mince (3 pounds)
  • 6 Cloves Garlic – pressed
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 Cup Bread Crust Crumbs
  • 3/4 cup Barbeque Sauce
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Hot Chilli Sauce (just enough for flavor not enough to offend anyone)

mooseburger mix

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat Barbeque
  2. Combine all ingredients in large bowl
  3. Thoroughly mix
  4. Make patties by taking about 3/4 cup of moose meat mixture and flatten. Place on a piece of wax paper for ease of removal. Continue until all moose meat has been used.
  5. Cook you patties until the moose meat juice starts to pool on the surface of the patties. Turn the patties over and complete the cooking process. Follow the chart below for recommend temperatures for cooking moose meat hamburgers.

We like to put all of our patties on a large tray and then place them in the freezer until I am ready to use them. It doesn’t matter if they freeze, if all the time you have is for them to get a little stiff… that’s OK. It helps to keep the patties together while cooking.

If you don’t use all your patties at once place a piece of waxed paper between each one and then let them freeze for future use. For longer storage, once frozen we put our moose hamburger patties into freezer bags for easy access. If you want to grind your own moose meat get a quality grinder to do the job. Any leftover meat from the previous year can easily be ground.

Hint: Moose Meatloaf Recipe

You can always take the same mixture from the moose hamburgers and place it into a loaf pan… voila… easy moose meatloaf!

Add your favourite dressings and voila you have the makings for a perfect meal!

We added leaf lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed onion, mozzarella cheese and our own special sauce.
Special Sauce

  • Mayonnaise
  • Hamburger Relish
  • Ketchup

Mix equal portions of mayonnaise and hamburger relish, add about one quarter of your mixture in ketchup. Example: 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup relish, 1/4 cup ketchup. Internal Temperature for Cooked Moose Meat

  • Internal temperature of 125-135 = Rare
  • Internal temperature of 135-140 = Medium Rare
  • Internal temperature of 145-150 = Medium
  • Internal temperature of 160 = Well Done
  • Internal temperature of above 170 = Don’t Bother… Hahahaha!

Nutritional value of Moose Meat

Moose meat is naturally low in fat, and because it comes from the wild it contains no harmful chemicals or hormones. Moose meat is so low in fat that you often have to add some to prevent it from being dry. When we process our moose meat we do not add any fat to our mince, choosing instead to add fat when cooking as needed.

Enjoy

Dressed for Success: Which Camo?

From the scouting to the weapon, every detail of a hunt can seriously affect the outcome….including your clothing!  I know, I know….who cares what you wear in the bush but believe it or not, it can truly be the difference between success and an animal that outsmarts you!

There are various manufacturers and patterns and each are laid out based on terrain they can represent and blend in with.

Below is a complete and diverse list of options brought to you by Cabela’s.  Each one can be expanded upon for inspection as well as linked to Cabela’s page for average price listings

And dont worry boys, they have the matching boots and other accessories

RIVER BOTTOM/DECIDUOUS TREES

Seclusion 3D®Seclusion 3D®
The most universally effective camouflage ever created with varying degrees of focus and contrast in three distinct layers of components, Seclusion 3D® gives the appearance of depth and shadow. It is this shadowed, variable-focus image that projects an amazingly realistic illusion of depth, instead of a simple two-dimensional scene. The first outermost layer of images has photo-quality detail for a perfect match with nearly any landscape. The secondary layer has six separate focal distances of varying clarity to enhance the illusion of depth to appear as though you’re looking right through it rather than at it. The background of dissolved universal tones creates shading and highlights to blend the top two layers into your surroundings. The pattern also incorporates blends of light and dark for a shadowed appearance that breaks up your entire outline with the same counter-shading effect that nature’s predators use to get within striking distance of their prey. You won’t just match your surroundings, you’ll vanish into them.

Mossy Oak® Obsession®Mossy Oak® Obsession®
This patterns uses several innovation elements to get you closer to game animals, any where you hunt, any time of the year. It has a lightened background of textured bark with carefully selected spring- and fall- toned elements as well as limbs and shadows. Everything is designed to replicate nature. If you like to hunt from the first day of the archery season to the last day of spring turkey season, you will love obsession.

Mossy Oak® Treestand®

Mossy Oak® Treestand®
Treestand is designed specifically for hunters who hunt from an elevated position. It offers hunters the ideal camouflage solution for altering their silhouette among the bare limbs of a tree in late fall.

Video

Realtree AP™Realtree AP™

Realtree APG™Realtree APG™
Like AP, but with the addition of olive green accents, Realtree APG™ offers even more concealment options in early fall and spring. The high definition imaging process allows this pattern to melt into hardwoods, pine thickets, prairies, river bottoms and other environments.

Realtree Hardwoods GreyRealtree Hardwoods HD®
The most three-dimensional camouflage ever created. Realtree Hardwoods is highly effective in late autumn and early spring. Realtree Hardwoods includes 13 natural colors, lifelike shadows and photo-realistic limbs and leaves for an effect so lifelike it appears you can reach right through the pattern.

With Realtree Hardwoods Green, hunters have one less excuse.

Mossy Oak® New Break-Up®Mossy Oak® New Break-Up®
New Break-Up features a computer-enhanced background of digitized red oak bark which is overlaid with a subtly mottled Bottomland pattern. It also features exclusive “Ghost Shadows” which depict the shading effect of branches and leaves that are out in front of the elements in the pattern, which significantly increases the three- dimensional effect of original Break-Up. All of the natural elements in the pattern (bark, leaves and limbs) are computer-enhanced digital images for exceptional realism.

Ameristep TangleAmeristep Tangle
Ameristep Tangle camouflage is a combination of oak and maple leaves, small branches, and fall grasses, blended with shadows to give a 3-dimensional effect. It easily provides concealment in any fall or early spring woods situation. It also works well on those border areas between the woods, pastures and croplands.

MatrixMatrix
With it’s open pattern of Maple leaves blended with greens and tans this is a good woodland pattern. The more vertical appearance of the pattern would do well in a willow environment or other open form of foliage.

True Timber® XD3True Timber® XD3

OptiFade™ Concealment ForestOptiFade™ Concealment Forest
As a science-based concealment pattern from W. L. Gore, this pattern prevents animals from recognizing a hunter as a predator, even when detected. Optifade Forest contains greens and browns that make a hunter’s outline vanish against trees, brush and foliage. The pattern is ideal for treestand hunting in wooded environments.

Naked NorthNaked North
DepthTech™, a state-of-the-art depth-enhancing technique, allows this pattern to maintain its dimensional depth long after other patterns have flattened out. The contrast between the limbs and the background replicates what mammals see when they look up against the sky. This allows you to look more like an extension of the tree. The pattern has no added black, so it won’t look too dark when you are not standing next to a tree trunk. Earns its name “Naked” because its combination of leafless popple, pine, birch and oak. One of the best patterns at eliminating whitetail “head bobbing”.

AdvantageClassic®Advantage Classic®
Advantage Classic blends perfectly with every environment. At a distance, Advantage Classic provides maximum break-up of the human outline. Up close, the detailed, realistic leaves and limbs offer incredible concealment qualities.

Mossy Oak® Forest Floor®Mossy Oak® Forest Floor®

If you loved their Treestand pattern, you will appreciate the work they have put into creating Shadow Branch, the perfect dead-of-winter pattern.

Mossy Oak® Shadow Leaf®Mossy Oak® Shadow Leaf®
Shadow Leaf’s realistic leaves, limbs and shadows reder you virtually invisible in green spring woods, delivering exceptional concealment for hunting late-spring turkey and early archery deer.

Vertigo™ GreyVertigo™ Grey

Most patterns are designed to make the hunt – Bottomland went right ahead and built a camo company. Bottomland is Mossy Oak’s original camo pattern, created by Toxey Haas two decades ago. This pattern preserves the original design while applying advanced technology for increased stealth and effectiveness. The same field-proven components and colors, the same dirt and bark elements, the same ability to blend into dark environments and obscure a hunter’s outline from every angle – all carefully enhanced with digital technology for even greater subtlety and realism. The colors of dirt, leaves, bark and old moss make up Bottomland’s elliptical shapes that resemble red oak bark. The goal was to perfectly blend in with the ground and under-story of big hardwoods and swampy areas. Bottomland was updated using the latest computer technology and enhanced digital images. The combined effect creates an illusion so realistic that it doesn’t just blend with its surroundings, but actually adapts to the colors and textures found in nature.

Mossy Oak® New Bottomland®Mossy Oak® New Bottomland®
New Bottomland preserves the integrity of the original design, while applying advanced technology for increased stealth and effectiveness.

Patterned by arranging natural elements like tree trunks, limbs and a variety of leaves over large open areas, then layering these elements at different depths within the pattern to create an amazing 3-D effect. It’s this unique process that makes hunters disappear in nearly any hunting situation they find themselves in.

Realtree XTRA® GreenRealtree XTRA® Green
Realtree XTRA® Green with its detail and contrast works great for early-season bowhunting – where green is needed and closeness counts. It uses the natural elements like tree trunks, limbs and a variety of leaves over large open areas while adding a variety of color in the leaves to set it apart. With this specfic color palette, Realtree XTRA® Green perfectly matches the lush, vibrant greens of the woods, making it ideal for anyone hunting in spring through early fall.

Zonz™ WoodlandsCabela’s Zonz™ Woodlands
Woodland hunters are likely to find themselves in one of the three “zones” while out in the field – whether perched in a tree stand, hiding in heavy brush or stalking through sparse, leafless branches. Now, for the first time ever, there’s a camouflage that perfectly blends all three zones.

MARSH/WATERFOWL APPLICATIONS

Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass®Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass®
The key elements in Shadow Grass are first the dark shadows that are cast from the blade of grass. Of all elements found in the outdoors, shadows more than anything are constant. These shadows run at different angles to add contrast, break-up the pattern and retain “Long Distance Visual Integrity”. Second is the realistic detail in each blade of grass found on the pattern.

Realtree MAX-4®Realtree MAX-4®
Realtree MAX-4 was designed to offer maximum effectiveness in open terrain – without geographical limitations. The pattern incorporates cattails, millet, milo, corn stalks, dead sunflowers, oak and maple leaves, cedar and oak limbs, plus a variety of other plant life into the largest camouflage artwork on the market. It melts into marshes, grasslands, deserts, broomsage, croplands…even the open canopy of a treetop. It’s ideal for deer, turkey, waterfowl and western big game. Coast to coast, border to border, it works.

Delta Hunter Marsh™Delta Hunter Marsh™
Columbia Sportswear’s proprietary waterfowl camo. A blend of varying shades of brown and tan incorporated into a cattail pattern.

 

True Timber® Flooded TimberTrue Timber® Flooded Timber
The combination of cattails, different types of grass and intense shadows is strategically designed to hide you in any type of marshland.

 

Mossy Oak® Duck Blind®Mossy Oak® Duck Blind®
Duck Blind was designed specifically for avid duck and goose hunters in all flyways from the east to west coast – to be equally effective in marshes, potholes, riverbanks, reeds, tules, bottomland, corn fields, wheat stubble, rice fields and just about anywhere a waterfowl hunter would want to be hidden from the birds’ view. Duck Blind is built on a base background of true dirt colors with different tones to represent wet and dry ground, with elements of millet, wild oats, corn stalks, phragmites, Johnson grass, soybeans and native grasses selected and placed to achieve maximum effectiveness. Unique shadows enhance depth and create the ultimate 3-D effect. Finally, muted shades of brown, tan, gray and soft black are incorporated for blending into harvested fields, marshes and wetland environments. All you have to do is sit down – and be the blind.

Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass Blades™Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass Blades™
Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass Blades™ is the most versatile and effective waterfowl pattern ever created. It accurately creates the perfect grass pattern by arranging every blade of grass in a natural position with shadows falling across each other on a thatched background. The thatch, with its small grass moving from light to dark spots creates the depth and distance from larger blades to provide a realistic, 3-D appearance and superior ability to break up a hunter’s outline. Each blade of grass was selected for its unique coloration and position to duplicate the grassy edges found all over the country.

SNOW/WINTER CAMO
