I just read the thread where one of our members shot a brown bear with a .300 Win. Mag. and the bear escaped wounded. In that thread someone mentioned an organization called "Alaska Game Search", a company that uses trained blood tracking dogs to help find wounded game animals. I contacted them and thought a sticky note on them would be in order for our hunters in SouthCentral Alaska (they are based in Anchorage).
If you are hunting the Anchorage / Palmer / Wasilla area and have a wounded animal you cannot find, you might give these guys a shout. Their website is at http://www.akgamesearch.org/. They specialize in finding wounded big-game animals. So if you've done your best to find the animal but are coming up empty, drop them a line right away and see if they can come out and help you. They're a not-for-profit company who are only interested in eliminating the suffering of wounded game and protecting the public from wounded animals.
