CANADA SAYS GOODBYE TO VACCINE REQUIREMENT,

SUCCESSFUL BEAR HUNTS
Austin Steeves, Daniel Bell and Tristan Nugent, all firefighters for Texas's Mansfield Fire Department, harvested black bears on the first night of the hunt. Kara cooked up mouth-watering black bear Philly cheesesteaks for the hunters. The firefighters also donated meat for a camp-wide dinner of black bear carnitas, which Kara prepared while a couple other groups baked freshly-picked Canadian blueberry cobbler for the whole group!
After the three hunters filled their tags, Kara began her hunt, which also resulted in a nice bear.
The next opening for black bear hunts is fall 2024, as 2023 hunts are fully booked. For more info on Pine Cliff Lodge black bear hunts, click the button below.
