I went with my family, two sons, a daughter in law and her brother, on a family Black Bear Spring Hunt in 2011. Although I was not hunting myself, I did go on with one of my sons, Erik, every morning and afternoon looking for bears, and let me tell you we had one of the best hunts ever. Keegan as our guide, has a sight of a Lynx, as we say in Mexico. He would spot the bears more than a mile away. It was really exciting. On the other hand, accommodations and food were great. They even cooked for us Swedish Pancakes with lingonberry a tradition in my family. We are looking forward to go back with Keegan for the big Browns, it was a great holiday vacation for my family.
Regards to your wife and all the team.
