Bears galore

5 posts in this topic

I posted on another thread about our visit last weekend to Holinshead Lake north of Thunder Bay. Wanted to let you bear hunters know about this place. The fishing was pretty darn good, but what impressed me was all the bears we saw, even during the middle of the day, all within several miles of camp. It hasn't been hunted in over 10 years, but the new owner is planning to run bear hunts and moose hunts, though his moose tags are spoken for for this fall. Great location - fish in the morning hunt bears in the evening. Doesn't get much better.

I was North of Thunderbay all last week on Lake nipigon. Had numerous bear encounters. 3 different times had a couple bears in camp. Driving around on logging roads looking for small trout streams, there would be proof about every 30 to 50 feet that bears don't cr@p in the woods. Got some great pics, one video of a roadkill moose gettin' chowed on 10yds off the road. If your thinking about bears in Canada, this is the area. Lots of guides and outfitters boast 90-100% success rates. If you would like some more info about the area, feel free to shoot me an email! jasonyoungquist @ yahoo It was an awesome trip in an awesome place. Every person I met were very friendly, humble, and happy go lucky type of attitude. seems alot like paradise!

Oh yes, lots of brookies... 3"- 14" in streams and 12" to 24" in the lake. All brookies. No lakers, some nice northern, and a few tullibee/ whitefish. Great trip to a great place! Hope to be back sooner than later. You can sit over baits tree them w/ hounds, cruise some logging roads looking for a bruiser.

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
