Fresh from the pennisula. Me and hunting partner Matt just returned from our Pennisula hunt where we were both successful in taking a Brown Bear. He got an excellent blondy on opening day and I got this old Boar on the 13th. I will let him post his story but will give you a run down of this boar. We actually walked in on him on the beach and got within 50 yards before spotting him. We got prepared to take him when we couldn't see him because of the impeding beach bank. So as I inched forward on my knees he decided he was coming up so there he was at 30 yards. Not sure who's eyes got BIGGER mine or his when he appeared but he stood up and I was able to get a shot off with my .340 weatherby 225 grain bullet in his right chest getting his lung. This bear was a fighter and still took off for about 1/8 mile before a neck shot finished him. He squared at 9' 1" and his skull green measured at 27 1/2 biologists guessed he was in his late teens maybe early 20's but will wait on the aging to come back to confim. The pic of the skulls are of mine and hunting partners his went 22 1/2. Was a great hunt with a great hunting partner and to include respectful hunters in the field when two different air services put us within 1/4 mile of each other. Branch River flew us in and they really took care of our needs getting into the field and also once we returned. Thanks--wish the weather would have been better but apparently we were not suppose to hunt on MOTHERS DAY this year.
