Got back this weekend from Southeast AK duck, deer, bear hunt.
Lots of mallards and geese in the areas we hunted. Our party did respectably well on mallrds. Kenworth the 1yr old Chocolate lab got some great expeerience on all types of retrieves as well as training in the blinds. He also pointed a Blue grouse on the beach and held until it flushed! Buddy got one deer and I got a nice brown bear...charging, first shot at less than 25 feet, 2nd shot less that that. Bear died 10 steps from where I was standing and dove head first into a beaver pond for good measure. I've always said the bear always gets the last laugh!
Can't wait until next year to do it all over again...except I have to wait 4 years for another bear in that area
Glad to be back with the family and good to hear all the reports on the forum.
