Hi,

Not sure if this is the correct section to put this in... but anyway...

What are some of the best spots to pick blueberries in the Soo? Preferably close to Sault College.

yeah, been purchasing those, but those cost money :P

I can pick up like 30-40$ worth of store blueberries in 1 hour easy.

Bellevue valley area is usually good for BB's..
Also the Laughing lake road off of the Ranger lake road, but that is quite a drive..

I'm not saying this to ruin the experience but there are an AWFUL LOT of bears kicking around this year (too much for the ecosystem to support) and some are starving. If you intend to go blueberry picking bring some sort of "bear repellent".

Since they canceled the spring bear hunt there have been many more bears around than usual, I've personally seen ten of them on the the way in driving 20 miles back of mile 67 a couple of months ago.

You have to remember now that you are going into their home and raiding their gardens.

Some people grow them, but they are much larger berries than the wild variety..

I have to shovel about 5 pounds of bear [censored] out of my yard every week because I live at the end of peoples road. I continuously have to remove garbage bags from my yard that they have decided to drag through. I have called the police about 9-10 times this year alone.... and its never the same bear. The number of bear in the municipal garbage dump is up to about 100 at dusk and the blueberry patches in Wawa I used to go to are all but closed to the public. (It is simply not worth the risk).

I say we relocate some of them to central park in Toronto or Parliment Hill and see if they think the spring bear hunt is a good idea.

I live on Peoples Rd by the tracks and there is a mamma bear and two cubs hanging around here as well. NOt to mention they already removed a male bear from here earlier this summer. You hear of more and more bears in the city now that is for sure
