this is the first color phase black bear i've ever seen, he was playing with a sow that was all black, bred her and moved on to follow other tracks...to bad for him those tracks came right me and my client. 60 yard shot, might be hard to see in the pics but he's almost redish brown. super cool bear!
then he bumped off a seven foot grizz two days later, just in time to make it home for his aniversary!
no plane crash this trip....but a 27 year old client on a discounted hunt just enjoying eveything he saw from bugs to baby ptarmigan!
