How are you doing I am doing great . I had a good day hunting . It was the first day of my black bear hunt in Northern British Columbia . I
spent the morning seaching for sign both on foot and a.t.v ., I saw lots of piles and tracks . I had pretty much made up my mind where I was going to hunt the evening , but had one more
spot to check out . As I was driving into an area I wanted to check , I turned the corner and saw a large black bear beside the road directly
beside my truck . I knew if I stopped he would be gone , so I continued past him without slowing . He made a run for the bush as I passed , that was the last I thought I would see of him . He was a
large bear and I wanted to get a better look . I drove another 300 yards past where I saw him run into the bush . I got out of the truck loaded up my rifle and slowly walked back to take a look . I
was sure he would be gone but thought I might see him on the tree line . I didn't see him there , but when I looked up he was only 50 yards away in the same spot I saw him moments before . He had
his head down eating grass , and didn't even know I was there . I decided he was the one I wanted so I took him with one clean shot . He dropped in his tracks and was dead when I got up to him .
He was a mature male about 300 lbs with a large head and a beautiful hide . He was almost 6' long and had large paws and claws . The green skull was 18 5/8 . He was not the record book boar I
was looking for , but still a great bear . I am getting a shoulder mount done , and will send you pictures when it is done . I feel wearing your H.S.E. products really helped me get so close to him
without being detected . The products I used where out of your Bear Essentials kit , I used the laundry wash , shampoo and body wash , spay deorderant, and the spruce cover up . My goal is to
harvest a Boone & Crockett black bear , with the help of your product I believe some day I will . I will be looking again this fall . One thing I noticed while I was gutting the bear is that there were
mosqetos and black flies all around me yet none bit or even landed on me , then after I washed up in the creek I started to have them land on areas that I washed . Have you had anyone mention to
you that your product my also serve as an insect repellent . I will be using it around the yard this week to see if it works . I will reply soon to let you know if it works , I think having no human scent
and smelling like there enviroment might throw them off . Well I hope you like the pictures , I can send you the originals if you want them . Thanks for everything and please write when you get time .

I returned from my deer trip today. I really liked your products, even though the snow was very loud and crunchy I still saw many animals. I
know they could see me and hear me but with your H.S.E. products they seemed really confused and even curious to what I was. Animals acted in ways I haven't seen before. One was a mature mule deer buck
that stayed bedded in the open well after detecting me, and didn't stand until I was under 80 yards away. During this time there was a stiff
breeze at my back, blowing towards the buck. He seemed curious to what I was, but acted really calm. I also walked slowly up to a cow moose with twin calves in the wide open, I got as close as 30 yards
away before they slowly walked away. The wind was swirling in all directions at this time. I thought this was neat because normally cows with calves are spooky. I also had a coyote walk
within 20 feet away from where I was sitting, and once he saw me he turned around and slowly walked away acting unafraid which is really uncommon. The last morning of the hunt I jumped
three whitetails they flagged and ran about twenty yards and stopped, allowing me to take a 3x4 at about 80 yards. This was good because usually once I see a whitetail flag that's the last I see of
him. He is not a big antlered deer, but I was pleased to get him on the last day of our hunt, and I believe your product made this possible. I will send pictures soon. I saw 9 mule deer bucks but
none were the four points I was looking for, but most of those were calm and close enough for a shot had I decided to take them. My partner who never used H.S.E. yet hunted the same area with
the same method as myself saw only 3 bucks, and only one was close enough to shoot had he wanted to. The products I used by directions were, the laundry soap, shampoo & body wash,
deodorant, clothing spray, spruce cover, and the doe urine on my boots. Using these products gave me great success on this hunt, and I can't thank you enough for making a product that will
make me more successful at the sport I love. My only regret I have about your H.S.E. products is that I didn't find out about them sooner.
Thanks again for a great product that really works,

Thanks for the Essential Bear H.S.E. kit, although I didn't take a bear this spring I saw 11 Black Bears and 3 Grizzlies while using your product. None of the bears I saw were the trophy size I
was looking for, but most of them seemed confused about what I was would have offered an easy shot had I wanted one. One place I saw a lot of sign so I sprayed the bear nip as well as the
Mature Sow Rutting Urine in a clearing. I sat about 40 minutes when a small bear appeared, and sniffed and lightly pawed the area where the scent was. I really like the H.S.E. products that you
provide, and hope to find that trophy black bear in the fall.

I just returned yesterday , after what was supposed to be a six day trip in Northern British Columbia for bear and moose . Thanks to your products it took me a day and a half to take
two great animals . I used the clothing wash , shampoo / body wash , human scent eliminator spray and then after that I put on the spruce blend cover . The first day I walked
about 6 miles stopping in a few places to call for moose , with no luck . It was about 9:00 in the morning I was looking over a large logging slash when I spotted a nice black bear
about 150 yards away . A brisk wind was blowing at my back towards the bear . I thought he would wind me at any time , but he carried on eating not even knowing I was there . I walked about fifty yards closer ,
and he still didn't know I was there . So I took him with one well placed shot . He measured close to six feet , and has a great hide . I walked back to get my quad so I could haul him out . That took
most of the day and was near dark when I returned to camp. The next day I had planned to check all the the spots I had called the day before . So I left the truck just before day break , and had only
walked about half a mile when I heard a bull moose grunt in a distance . It was still a bit dark in the timber where I was so I hurried about 100 yards to a large clearing . I sat beside a root pile , and
gave two long cow moose calls , and right away he answered with 6 loud grunts , and some thrashing of the brush . The calling and answering continued for twenty minutes with the bull coming
closer all the time . Legal bull moose must be mature having no less than three brow tines on at least one antler . He appeared at the edge of the clearing about 400 yards away . I could see with
binoculars that he had large antlers , but in the dim light I couldn't tell If he was mature . I called him to about 150 yards , I thought he was legal , but wanted a closer look so I gave one more call , he
came in fast covering a 110 yards very quickly , at this point he tipped his head back to sniff the air , and I could clearly see he was legal . The wind was calm , and I thought he might wind me , but he
seemed calm . So I took him quickly at 40 yards . He is a great bull , his antlers were over 45 inches wide , and were 9 points on one side and 11 on the other , the brow tines were 4 and 3 . So
thanks again for a great product that really works .
