It was brought up in another thread i was reading, so i figured i would share my bear in camp experience.
i took a fly in brown bear hunt out of nikiski with alaska west air (pilot was doug, i cant remember his last name but he is the owner). my dad and i were on a 7 day drop off hunt for brown bear. one of the first questions my dad ask, (my dad being from texas) what are the chances of having a bear in camp? doug said not to worry the bears never come into camp. sure enough the first day of the hunt after a long day of looking for brown bear, we get back to camp and the tent is in peices, the food tent knocked down and a bear eating the food. i shoot the bear with my 300 wsm and he drops to the ground (5'5 black bear, boar). we pick everything up and reorganize (on the other end of the landing strip and lots of duct tape later) then go back to skin, quater, and de-bone him. after all that we call it a night. when we wake up the next morning, a brown bear has came into camp and ate all the meat and drugg the carcase off. the only thing i was able to salvage was the hide (guess the brown bear didnt care about it). what a hunt
anyone else have any good bear in camp experiences?
