It all started with an idea followed by a phone call from PSE Regional Sales Manager, Craig McCullock. Then some planning, a ton of planning. If you have a guy like Craig on your team, you don't worry about the planning. If he's in charge of a project, you know it will get done. And, it gets done well. The plan was a black bear hunt with a few of our dealers from the northeastern United States. Joining us on the hunt were PSE Regional Sales Managers Dick Bamann and Greg Kreps, as well as Ron Gilley from Vibracheck Stabilizers. Ron is a great guy who offers the archery community the best stabilizer on the market. If you haven't shot one of his company's Isolator stabilizers you are missing out on a great product. For those of you that have met these guys, you know that laughter and practical jokes were not in short supply.
The host of this event was Mac and Ruth Rossiter of Fundy Outfitters. Fundy Outfitters is located near the Bay of Fundy in Alma, New Brunswick. Mac and Ruth are terrific people who take a great deal of pride in their profession. If you know of anyone needing a lesson in customer service, we've found the perfect instructors. Accommodations, meals, bear baits, employees - all are first class. No detail is too small or is left unattended. Oh yeah, and bears, plenty of bears.
Craig and I were the first ones to arrive in camp and were greeted by cool temperatures and rain. Not exactly ideal weather for bear hunting over bait, but the weatherman promised things would be changing. We hoped he was right, at least this one time. We went over plans with Mac and prepared for the other folks to arrive. There is nothing like the anticipation of a hunt. It gives you the chance to gather with old friends and meet new ones. Your hopes run high with vivid mental images of the animal advancing into bow range. You've been practicing religiously for weeks just for one opportunity that will be over in seconds. The memories though, will last a lifetime.
Scott Pierce of Dan Pierce Outdoors of Lewiston, PA was the first hunter to hit the mark. He harvested a fine spring bear that eventually won our big bear contest. Scott won a dozen Carbon Force Arrows and a Vibracheck stabilizer for his efforts. Also shooting bears were Kevin Greiner of "Reedy's Archery" in Middleboro, Massachusetts, Kevin Nelson, owner of "The Archer's Choice" in Skowhegan, Maine and Jeff Bordwell, owner of "Legends of the Fall Outfitters" in Tully, New York. PSE Regional Sales Manager Dick Bamann of Victor, New York harvested a magnificent bear. I was fortunate to fill my tag on the last afternoon of the hunt with 12 minutes of shooting light left. Overall there were 13 hunters at camp that saw 24 bears. A few of the guys opted to pass on the shot opportunities that presented themselves.
We would like to thank everyone involved for a terrific hunt and great memories. You may contact Mac Rossiter of Fundy Outfitters @ (506) 887-2113 or on the web @ www.fundyoutfitters.com
