    Default color phase blackies and young client!!

    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!

    Default nice again

    Not to discount the bears, or the homely hunter, but that photo of the ptarmigan chick I think is way cool. I like the little stuff I find in a hunt and have never seen a ptarmigan that small. Very nice indeed.

    that pic of the little chick is pretty awesome....hopefully that cinnamon boar planted a seed or two and you'll have some more in your area soon

    Default fun, fun

    Another fine performance Jake. You do a good job of promoting your buisness.

    If I was looking to hire a guide your name and buisness comes strait to mind. Your consistent performance speaks volumes.

    Not to mention......I'm kinda partial to a Blacktail hunting afectionados.

    I'm 33 so were not to different in age.......I've still got a few miles left on my legs.

    Anybody looking.....at 31 and with the amount of experience Jakes got.......look no further, he'll give ya 100%

    They are not protected on the Alaska side of the border. They have been protected on the BC side for many years.

    That pic was taken by my partner Jim Simpson from Hyder when he was going to Terrace BC for groceries for ‘the Bus’ … it was about mid way between Terrace and Kitwanga on the Yellowhead Hiway.

    They are very rare on the AK side of the Canal but they are there and seen occasionally. We have been seeing more Cinnamon Black Bear in recent years. There are a few Glacier (blue) Black Bear around but they very rare also.

    Only a few Blue have been taken in history in the Misty Fjords and no one has ever taken a Spirit Bear on the AK side.

    Actually Jim's bear (the belly pic) looked Cinnamon but the under fur was very grey / blue ... the guard hair made it look Cinnamon. It was way scared in the face and only had one testical ... we saw him one day being very dominate and the other Bears around didn't want any part of the scene. He was all hackled up and strutting stiff legged and doing the sideways shuffle action.
