While doing some web browsing getting ready for my first PWS bear hunt this spring, I ran across a webpage for a guide selling bear hunts in PWS. The following statement was on the website:
"Operating under a Chugach National Forest special use permit, ************ is proud to offer one of a kind hunts in pristine Prince William Sound aboard our private yacht. Everything you've heard about "The Sound" is true and more! Aside from the abundant marine life it boast perhaps the highest concentration of trophy black bears on earth. With hides squaring from 6-7 feet it's no wonder Prince William Sound has a reputation for producing giant black bears. Nowhere will you see a higher number of bears, a bigger percentage of large male bears or more perfect hides on bears. Period. We pride ourselves on having the best black bear hunt currently available and the equipment and skill to make it happen. We harvest nothing but large males with perfect hides."
A couple thoughts crossed my mind. First, as I was reading about bear hunts and different areas to hunt, there seemed to be many places that have lots of bears and big bears, and no one area seemed to be clearly the best. Second, I'm not going on a guided hunt and I haven't ever been on many websites of guides, so maybe this is the typical "sell" for wherever they hunt; I don't know.
Anyway, I was just wondering if this statement is true, or if it is an overstatement? IF it is an overstatement, is it a common occurence for these types of claims to be made?
