    My first impression was that the ears are posted way up which defies some field judging logic. Maybe his skull being so large moved his ears upward.
    I'd like to know the age of this animal too. I'm curious about the genetic capacity of Kodiak.
    Thanks for sharing!

    How about the bear further towards the bottom. Hit at 20 yards with a self bow and no back up rifle shot from the guide as the bear charged and ran by them after being shouted at. Large brass ones those two guys have.

    Kodiak,

    Not bad for an end of the hunt last day almost dark beach bear is it. I stopped by Munsey's camp while I was there with my grandson and saw it. What a site. I don't remember if it was Curtis or not that was guiding the guy.

    The first thing I noticed was the hunter's gnome hat and then his blue jeans. How did he kill that giant bear without some fancy pants??!!

    I wasn't the hunter that harvested that bear. I saw the photo on the b&c website and posted the link here for others to see because 30" b&c bears don't come around too often.

    Cool. Curtis, the guide on this bear was curious who was posting it.
