There are a lot of bears eating berries around the road just north of Cold foot. Grizzlies and Blackies. Grizzly season was not open on my way to the north slope so I had to pass a 30 yard broad side shot at a nice bear on my way up. On my way back yesterday I was able to put 2 stalks on 2 different blackies in the span of about 25 minutes. I was pretty ripe from a week with no shower so both of them winded me at about 60 yards!!! 10 yards to far for my archery confidence level. Just wanted to get the word out that if someone had a few days of free time and could make it up above Cold foot they could have a really good chance at a blackie or a grizzly. For all that do not know you are not allowed to rifle hunt within 5 miles of the road up there.
