    Default Lets see the BEARS!

    We have seen the awesome mounts of many of the fello members, with bear season almost upon us, how about some bear pics.

    This will be my first season of hunting in Alaska and am absolutely chomping at the bit. The pictures will likely only make it worse, but I am willing to risk it. I moved to the Kenai area from outside January 2006, so do not have any Alaska hunting pictures to share--tons of fly fishing pics however. Used my drift boat and fly rod to sooth the hunting withdrawls last year--worked pretty well until September--nothing helped after that.

    Going to be doing a bait station with a buddy who had one the past couple years.

    Will

    Default Alive......or dead?

    Are we looking for grizzly bears alive walking and talking?
    O.K. How 'bout I bore you all with some live Ursus stuff first. All of these grizzlies come from the Seward Peninsula.
    A pretty grizzly bear, very blonde, Summer '04.


    A small but pretty grizzly wading a river looking for humpies, August '05


    An angry grizzly upset at us for pushing him off his caribou kill. Spring '01


    A puny grizzly just out of his den, looking to get back in. Spring '05

    Default O.K. now some bears not so lively.

    Here we have some bears that ran into the business end of Nosler partitions.

    A very colorful male, 7' square, extremely long claws and out of his den about 800 yards. 22 inch skull, Spring '95


    A very nicely furred male, 7'11'' square, very long claws and a reindeer eating machine. Belly was packed with deer meat and hair. 23 6/16 skull, Spring '00



    A nice female for the big brother, very thick fur, 6' 5'' and a 21 inch skull. Spring '02


    A scanned photo, terrible quality of a great memory. My 11 year old son on his first hunt with Dad. A fall bear killed behind our cabin, a female about 6'4''. A skull that was 20'' and a tough little bear. Fall '03

    Default Are we looking for only live bears? Because .......

    They usually end up dead after we get ahold of them.
    And we continue.....
    Here we have a fine male, 13 years old and very nicely furred. A hide that squared 7'11 and a skull that is officially entered with B&C in the 12th edition of Records of North American Big Game that measures 24 1/16.
    Killed at midnight on a spring night in '02



    And the teeth of the above mentioned bear.


    A lousy scan of a great specimen. The bear that squares 8'10'' and measures 26 1/16. Seventeen year old male killed in spring '01


    And here we have the teeth of the above bear.

    Default Winding down here.

    Alright, I'll move along.
    Here we have another angle of my sons first grizzly, a nice 7' foot female. Fall '04



    Here we have a very pretty little female from around the midnight hour, spring '06.
    A tough little bear that had a 6' 6'' hide, and the perfect wall bear.


    And here's looking at you......hoping your bear hunt this year produces a fine example such as this 8' 10'' Arctic Grizzly



    I'm outta here........

    about 8'6" from south end of the peninsula, bow shot 19 yards, about six inches of penetration, never made it past the rib cage, one shot .416 at 10 feet as it ran by into the brush, got 30 yards and was done. some don't like back up guns, this client sure did. big body, short legs.
    i don't have many more scanned yet, so i'll call 'er quits here, nice pics grizzkiller, enjoying those open country shots!
