    Default Black bear water taxi question

    So I figured out which water taxi service I am going to use. Now I have to figure out which place i want them to take me to. They said there were 3 places I should look at and they are, Day Harbor, Glacier Bay, and Seward Thumb Cove. My question is, which one should I go to to get the best chance at shooting a bear. If someone could help me out it would be awesome.
    Hunt until you don't like it any more

    Day harbor to shoot black bears. Thumb cove for kayakers.
    I come home with an honestly earned feeling that something good has taken place. It makes no difference whether I got anything, it has to do with how the day was spent. Fred Bear

    Jcorwin,

    I can get you in touch with a hunt buddy of mine that moved back to MN a few weeks ago - he's still stuck with his Alaskan cellphone contract for quite some time so it'll likely be an instate call from/to you. He water taxied out of Homer and rented a yurt across the way, and said that the blackies were thick as thieves over there.

    If I call'm first and tell'm you're cool and to call you, I'm sure he would, and give you all the inside skinny he's got. Let me know; I just need to be remnded of your cell #; not sure I still have.

    You and your good buddy T were two of the coolest guys I've met in the field in the last year, and I meet a lot of great guys out there. Good to hear from you again.
