    Default Walk away

    They are out,
    Stalked him to within 11 yards with my bow and let him walk. He sure was pretty though, being new to Alaska, I hope I can do a little bigger/better. Took a few pictures instead. Probably STUPID.

    Thanks for sharing the pic. He's not huge, but that's a pretty nice bear by my lowly standards.

    The picture itself is a great trophy. Looks like a decent bear but this early probably good you passed him. It will probably be the last bear you see this year. ;D

    Nice job!

    Default bear sighting

    What part of the state are you in? And when was that taken?

    That picture is great, gives me some confidence in being able to stalk a bear to bow range (or kodak range).

    That front leg forward like that would have given you a perfect shot at the heart. How often do you get a look like that at a bear on a spot and stalk?

    Nice bear. It looks like it would be around a 6 footer

    I agree with the other guys. That would have been a keeper for me!!!
    I guess he was for you too. Congrats on a great trophy! (not too tasty though.
    And like the others, I don't want your honey hole but wonder what part of the country it was.

    Default Bear.......

    How big of a bear are you holding out for? Looks like a mature bear, probably 6' range. Keeper in my book. Nice picture BTW.
