Man... I dont know what to say other than I am thrilled and to make things even better I am heading out with him on a Caribou Hunt in a few days up north. RJ did a phenomenal job and I am now finally able to start adding my trophies to the display area in our house (tomorrow the 6'8 blackie rug gets hung as well).
This bear was shot June 24th 2013 on a hunt with a good friend and fellow forum member. I called RJ and told him to take his time as we were leaving the state for a few years and feared having it moved back up once I retired. I talked to RJ continuously over the months as I was gone and once we arrived back in Alaska gave him a call to let him know we were back for good.
I cannot wait to put a bou down with him in the coming days as we enjoy the thrill of the outdoors and a great friendship and hopefully I can add another great trophy to the wall.
