Back Country Bear Hunting Experience

Joe holding black bear

This past spring Joe DeProspero and I packed into the Selway River for a spring black bear hunting trip. It was Joe’s third spot-and-stalk hunt in the Selway wilderness for bear.

He has been on many hunts at the Flying B Ranch since 2011, which includes the successful harvest of four bear, whitetail and mule deer, and the elusive mountain lion. He and I spoke in February about a particular drainage we had glassed on a previous hunt.

Hunting South Africa with JohnX Safaris

"There must be a million reasons to go to Africa, but until last year, none of them had drawn me there. At the urging of friends and family I booked a trip; not fully knowing what was in store, but thoroughly excited nonetheless. Along with my wife (herself an Africa veteran), some good friends and their adult son we decided to meet in Cape Town on July 2nd for the quick flight to Port Elizabeth. We were met by our JohnX guides upon arrival and driven to the Lalibela Game Reserve, where we would enjoy part of our stay.
