Placed two baits out last week when I went to my parents place in MN. Bought my bait and my father is helping me by checking cameras and putting bait out daily now until I get there to hunt on Sept 1st. Just thought I'd share a few pics so far...

Good luck and can't wait for pics and the story! I am looking at taking my father up there for a moose hunt when I retire from the AF in a years time. Who are you going with for an out fitter?

That one looks like a bruiser!! Best of luck! As far as moose goes in Ontario - our moose numbers are in decline and are headed for the same situation you guys have in Minnesota. If I was going to pay an outfitter for a moose hunt I don't think it would be Ontario and I live here! My first choice would be Newfoundland.

Thanks for the advice! I'll post new pics and details when I get them from dad and continue when I'm on stand to follow along if people would like. I can't wait! Haven't shot one in about 10 years

We are headed to Merckle's camp with Terry Kluke for week of fishing/bear at his outpost cabin. I know the fishing is good and we will see bears. Hope to see a bruiser like your pic.

Wabigoon/Dinorwic lakes are a great part of the province. Excellent fishing for walleye, pike, muskie and smallmouth bass. Bear density is the highest in the province and bear size is larger than average with potential for some real monsters. Good luck!

That looks like a nice bear. What part of Minnesota are you hunting in?

My wife is from Morrison County.

My wife's family is from the Upsala area,. I was all set to settle in Texas when I was stationed at Ft Hood, then met my wife, now I'm in MN.

I'm guessing your hunting just north of St Croix State Park. Upsala is in Morrison County which might be of intrest to Pitchfork.
