Lots of Wildlife!

The past week has been a great time to be in New Brunswick's forests.We have been busy tending our bear baits and I squeezed in a fishing trip for brook trout on the Newcastle Stream.The fiddleheads were popping out and I got a limit of brookies for the pan.Nothing real big,just nice pan trout. We saw a sow and three cubs near one of our baits and we ran into a nice boar and a smaller bear at one of our other baits. One of our baits in Duffern was totally destroyed by what appears to be at least one large boar and one or two smaller bears. We are seeing lots of deer in our travels.We saw a nice otter at a beaverdam on the Harley Road while checking baits and the rabbits are everywhere on the roads. We had a pair of foxes and three kits move in next door and we have been having a great time watching them play and interact with a pair of Canada geese that are nesting nearby. It is really interesting to watch how predator and prey species react to each other. The fox and geese seem to have a real curiousity about each other and neither seems afraid or aggressive towards the other. The sea trout are moving up the Cains and Miramichi Rivers and we will be pursuing them in the coming weeks as well as hunting our bear baits. If any sports would like to go on an adventure in our great outdoors,just give us a call or e-mail us and we will make all the arrangements for your trip of a life-time! See you there!
