I made it out to Montague last week for my first ever deer hunt in the sound. My hunting partner was my wife. I got some advice on this board before we went. The advice was good, the bucks were way....high.
We ended up having an experience with one of Montague's famous brown bears on the second day. I have now seen bear spray be totally ineffective, on an enraged charging bear. Luckily it was the bear and not us that lost out on this one. I took the time to put the whole story of the hunt and bear charge on my website with some photos, if you're interested. If you dig further you can find my wife's first hunt ever, from this spring, for black bear. There's even video, if you have a high speed connection. Nothing professional, I was filiming and coaching at the same time. It's at www.alaskaadventurejournal.com/montague.htm
