I'll try to shorten a long story. My wife & I had hunted an area in Unit 7 for 10+ years with a good friend. As time wore on the brown bear population went up and the moose population went down, that coupled with my wife having knee surgery, we thought a change was needed. About 5 years ago we started to try different areas, and began exploring other Units in the state. We invested in motorized toys and begin driving north to hunt, finding mixed results but enjoying the adventure. This year was no exception we went north again. We did find one large bull, but were not able to bring him home. Our good friend on the other hand stayed close to home and went back to see how the old "Honey Hole" was doing. After calling out 2 brown bears in the morning, he called out this great 60" bull & 2 cows. This is a 6 mile non-motorized hike, 36 hours later he got it out.
