Got out for about 5 hours in Whittier today- Weather is amazing in Anchorage yet seemingly went cloudly in Whittier (as always). We glassed the south slope facing beaches from a couple miles out of Whittier all the way to Shotgun cove, in and around it. Didn't see any bears. Landed in Shotgun cove- no tracks in the snow, However greenery was starting to come up so I'm imagining that they will be out very very soon. There was still some 10'+ piles of snow in the hills with some easily pushing 20-30 ft further back.
Next time I'm gonna try to go out farther to Esther Island, I heard theres alot more bears there from some locals.
The trip was still nice, flat flat seas, saw multiple sea otters, 2 sea lions, found some cool shells and an Eagle skull- (anyone know if its legal to keep this or If I have to turn it into F and G ?
Anyone else get out this weekend/howd ya do?
