Many of the smal
ler streams such as Coal Creek,Gaspereau River and Newcastle Stream are all starting to open up and the bigger rivers will break up with the raise of water that will come with the warmer weather. The following photo shows the Newcastle Stream at North Minto looking upstream to the old trestle.
If you visit our web site at http://hargroveandbauer.com/ you will see we have upgraded our site and provided more info so visitors can get the facts easier. We have also lowered the prices per day for big game hunts from $350 to $250. This is a significant decrease that Ken and I feel better reflects the economic times we are in. Sports will get the same service as before but at a reduced rate. We think this is a great deal and we hope our visitors will too.
My good friend Allen Davidson will be helping us out this year in the woods and on the water here at home on Salmon River and on the Miramichi. Allen is a life long sportsman and guide and has been down many trails with me. He was also tought by some of the best woodsmen in our area such as Angus LeBlanc of Bronson and Bob McBeth of Chipman. Allens father.Fred Davidson,was considered by many to be the best skinner in the area. He brought Allen along on his trap lines and Allen has many stories of his father and the predicaments he would get into. The next photo shows Allen with a nice trout on the Miramichi River last year.
Ken and I will be donating half day trips on Salmon River to Big Brothers and the Anti-Poverty Organization this summer. We are doing this because we think it's important to give something back to the less fortunate and hopefull make a difference in some young persons life.
We are also going to give away two free bear hunts this year. One to an American and one to a European hunter. These hunts will be given to individuals who can help us find clients in their respective countries and demonstrate to Ken and I how they will do that. We still only want to guide a maximum of six hunters per week,so this isn't all about getting larger.It's more about consistency. If anyone can help us out here,just send me an e-mail or give me a call.
I like to include photos of vintage outdoor items occasionally and for this post I dug up a photo of a great old magazine cover. I love these old graphics that magazines used back in the day and this hunter looks like he has his hands full.
