Here are a few photos of the brown bear I hunted in the spring of 2001. I was on a solo hunt in the Ahklun Mountains, just south of the Kilbuck Mountain Range. After coming across the tracks it took me 2 days of tracking before I spotted the bear high up on the crest of the highest mountain. At that time I was using a Weatherby Mark V Stainless rifle in 340 Weatherby, scoped with a Leupold 4x fixed power, ammunition was factory Weatherby 250 grain Nosler Partitions. When I initially read the tracks the bear had been chasing a caribou and had almost caught it, I could tell from the splash of blood in the snow on the caribou's trail. I must have come up on the bear's hunt just as the he was almost on the caribou. The caribou's tracks headed down off the mountain, while the bear's tracks headed straight for the top. There was also a set of red fox tracks following the bear's trail, probably hoping for a meal. Anyway there is no experience like hunting brown bear on a solo hunt, especially in the spring. Almost time for making plans for another bear hunt. Enjoy the photos. First photo is of the bear and my rifle, the second is me and my dad with the bear hide stretched out to show it's size.
