    Is that 9,2 stretched or laying flat? What was the green score on the skull?
    I shot a 7-2(stretched) blackie years ago. That was one big bear.

    its nine two flat, not strecthed, skull i think was right at 25", i wasn't there for the sealin' but i rough taped it.
    floated a river full of hooligan, brownies were slow, a few local tiny things running around but nothing worth takin'. this one cut the corner in the river, started woofin' at us at 90 yards and the client nailed him hard, with his .338, bear dropped rolled and ran like the dickens...went about 90 yards, lost his trail once but was able to sort him out in the brush, luckly he got to where it opens up before cashin' in his chips. Rubbed up pretty good. Clients second animal bigger than a jackrabbit in 20 years of hunting..his black bear two days earlier was his first! was a fun hunt, weather was ok, light rain everyday.

    Smile nice

    Now thatís what guided hunting should be like. What a fun hunt. Thatís one lucky client. I cannot believe that people would book with a huge outfitter with 17 clients in camp when there are hunts like this available. Congrats to a hard working guide!

    Nice work, Jake!

    No spring Kodiak hunts this year?

    Looks like you kick started '09 pretty well!

    Good luck the rest of the year.

    thanks guys, its just neat to be able to share expereinces like these with people who are super charged about it! not like their 40th bear or anything, this is a dream that actually comes true..what a killer time to spend with someone!
    the black bear pics are horrible, it was raining and he was falling down a ravine about to slip under the snow shelf and i wasn't about to start rollin' him around to get pics, the client was burnt and not much left in him so we just took one to show we were there and got to work. Wish they'd have been good pics, he was a super bear.

    Didn't pull any spring tags for kodiak this year, waiting on the draw to find out for this fall now!!

    That's not a bad pic Jake - did your client have a little love tap from his scope?

  19. #19

    Default Congrats Jake and to your client

    Man those pics really stirred up the juices AGAIN.....I'm still giving that July bowhunt over the salmon streams for Silvertips consideration. Maybe 2010 or 11....seeds for the future.

    The important thing is I know that you'll be my guy if/when I yank on the trigger, I've just got to get over this mental block thing about being guided....

    Good.

    That Black Bear pict aint bad, its the reality called "Hard work", and I'm sure it'll be a more memerable picture than any other that guy has from hunting....., thats what I see!...
