    Thumbs up kenai bears, goats...

    was talking to our bio yesterday about success rates and DLP's.
    so far this year, including 4 illegal kills and a couple traffic fatalities there have been 32 brown bears killed/DLP'd this year, a new record.
    there have also only been about 15 goats taken on the whole peninsula so far.

    Thirty-two! Holy smokes! Isn't that about 10% of the "population"? I thought there were not supposed to be that many brownies on the Kenai.

    Default They are almost all gone!

    Way more bears here than they know. Even after all those DLP's, we saw 5 separate brown bears on the upper Kenai a week ago saturday. Granted, we were on the river the entire day, but thats still a lot of bears to see in such a short stretch of water--esp. considering how thick the salmon are below Skilak right now.

    I got the call from F&G on Friday, confirming the fall portion of my kenai BB tag is cancelled. Who'd a thunk it. I will have to wait until the spring--my only concern is keep temptation at bay while in Kotz caribou hunting next week.
