Returned from a Kodiak bear hunt just over a week ago -I thought I would have pix to post by now, will do so when I get them downloaded. We stayed on a 56' boat and had a great time. Nothing like grilling ribeyes and halibut fishing at the same time you are glassing for bear! We passed several rubbed bears, one 8 footer taken and a missed opportunity on a 9-10 footer at close range. I have to say, "roughing it" on a boat is definitely the way to go!! We saw 12 different bears in 10 days. All down low, near or on the beach, and very lethargic.
