Thread: Just got back from POW

  1. #1

    Default Just got back from POW

    Just got back from my first trip to Alaska, a POW bear hunt. Loved it! Pics soon, got a bear spot & stalk, rifle, second day. 18-9/16", nice bear but not huge by POW standards, my first bear. I was very worried about shooting a small bear so I watched him a long time before shooting. 150 yards, perfect shot broadside he went 20 yards and dropped. Saw lots of bears, stayed at Staney cabin, weather was unreal, hot and sunny. Could not catch any fish other then cutthroats to save my life. Tried for steelhead in rivers.

    You're screwed when your gills and webbed feet become permanent.
