    Default Alaska Bear Classic. What day for first interior griz, brown, and black?

    So, in the spirit of the Nenana Ice Classic, we have the Alaska Bear Classic. This is for the forum members only. Winner of each division will get a t-shirt!

    Day of first interior grizzly April 21st. 11:10am.
    Day of first coastal brownie April 10th. 4:15pm.
    Day of first black bear April 26th. 8:45pm

    Good luck!

    lol! Well, wasn't planning on counting ones hit by your truck! I would count guides that have clients with them.

    Also, I guess I have lived up North too long! Those are earlier dates that I would have guessed so far.

    Ok, Interior Griz - Friday April 13th by my buddy. Sounds like a good day to me. We're hiking in on the 12th.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and donít have one, youíll probably never need one again

    Heh heh Stranger! Funny stuff! I just said t-shirt... it might be one that I used to put some dead animals in! Remember, this is only about guessing which day the first animal will be taken by a forum member. Doesn't have to be taken by the guy posting.... although I hope it is in my case!

    Stranger, you could have already got this one! Nice pic of that one the other day you posted.
