    Default BRWNBR 2017 season

    Well,
    It's about that time. I'm gonna try and keep folks up to speed on how our season goes again this year. I kinda like the aspect of that, if I have a crappy season the whole worlds gonna know. Maybe hurt myself some but I think honesty speaks to people. Hunting is what it is. We put in the time and the effort in areas we know hold our quarry. What else can we do...oh ya. Eat really good, make great friends, have amazing adventures and experiences!

    This year started out with the birth of our last little girl, baby number 6. Then a slight scare this week with the diagnosis of me having a hernia. Surgeons said wait till seasons over to have it operated on. So this year clients may have to pitch in a bit more packing hides out!! Maybe I should "have" a hernia every year!

    We have a full plate of hunts this season....take a ride with me.

    Didn't draw any tags this spring. Rots. Headed north on snowmachines for April instead this year. Working on getting a new area on Kodiak with MUCH better draw odds....don't matter your boats probably broke again...

    Well got two hunts done. Both snowmachine hunts up off the Denali hwy. first hunt we were a bit early. Saw a sow with Cubs and found another Den that we never did see the bears that lived there. Snowmachines just over 800 miles in some amazing country. Did manage to put our hooks into this great wolf however! Amazing trophy.
    Second hunt was much better timed. Second day out we cut a nice track of a 8' grizzly and followed him about five miles until he slipped into a brushy creek drainage. Disappointing. We crossed tracks of a sow and cubs later and found a fresh den and possibly the bear who called it how. However that bear was ten yards below the skyline and moving off. A fresh wolf killed caribou added some hope as we set up on that. The wolf was there but at 700 yards he knew something was up and wouldn't come back in. The snow fell apart on us making travel extremely difficult. The last three days the snow andnlow level clouds and warm air moved in, shutting us down. A great trip but no tags punched.

    Just rolled back in from a fly out spring bear hunt with a return client. We saw seven grizzly, a sow with twins and two pairs of legal bears we could not get to due to the earth being to big. Saw over two dozen black bears and plugged his grizzly tag on this black bear the day before the weather turned to rotten cheese on us. Goat,missed grizzly, four deer, and his first bear with me so far. Coming back again next year, great clients make for great experiences!


    Season to date 11 grizzlies spotted
