    Default One good reason,

    to do a little bear hunting !

    This cow & calf and 4 other cows, 3 pregnant, were taken down by a grizz that died later in the day. Found him about 1 1/2 miles away, he unwittingly left foot prints.

    They had been dead for 4-5 days. I was a little pissed off.

    This cow had the most meat eaten off it. I pulled the calf out thru the hole.
    Another pregnant one had just its nose eaten off, and back 'raked' & shredded down to the spine.
    One off the other 2 cows was gutted, near the haunch, 1 tiny moose hoof uneaten.
    The last cow we opened, it was carrying a single calf, the cows nose mostly ripped off, neck broken and shredded.
    This pic is from about 10 years ago.

    Also I added another pic of 14 dead caribou calves on the "Dead caribou on Denali Hwy" thread.

    Default Quick Question

    I am unknowledgable here and admit so bear with me (no pun intended). On kills like you described, would the bear normally come back and cover them for eating at a later time? Also, wondered if the bear was a sow or a boar? If it was a a sow could it have been back to a den due to cubs?

    Again, I just wish to learn and I am in no way being critical. I have spent a lot of time in years past moose hunting and I sure don't like seeing that ...

    Man o man. If that pic ain't enough to motivate the naive, nothing is. Those creatures are hideous beings and need to be dealt with severely at every encounter.

    The bear was a 8 ft + boar.

    Its not unusual for them to kill more than they can eat, these cows were above tree line, a deep snow year. A deep snow year is called a predator accessible year. This bear was headed down hill when I found him, he would have likely repeated this event had he gotten any further.

    Anyone that can get their hands on a back issue of the Alaska Sportsman Magazine's should read them all.

    One in particular had an article by a state biologist .... W. G. Ballard, "The Case of the Disappearing Moose," Alaska, 49 (Jan 1983) ...

    This study is well documented and scientifically upheld (it has received many citations in many Master's Thesis'). It is shocking and truthful.

    I'm no pro either but have found a few winter kills that were being eaten on by black bears and they never buried it,took a few days to dissapear both times but they allways seemed to feed in the dark so never ended up geting one of them.Unlike the one grizz cache we luckily stumbled upon it was buried completely and yes we got that moose killer!!!

    Iím always baffled by a predator that concludes another predator is less justified than themselves.

    Wise words stranger, wise words.

    The pics are of bears doing what they do, since they are bears.

    Plenty of pics of humans doing what humans do, not only to other species, but to each other, that are far, far more disgusting. Does that mean we should be shot at every opportunity as well and our populations kept at as low a level as possible?

    Just food for thought, flame away . . .

    Yep! Ak should be like every other state in the big U.S.!! According to you folks - that's where we're headed! The Lost Frontier; and then you can all whine about the aftermath.. Nature just aint natural to most folks this day and age.. LOL!!

    Thats what War is for, which has come as naturally as Hunting to Men.

    Labensrom, Energy, power and control, and certainly over resources.

    Yes we are being populated, and its going to have devastating effects on the way we live.

    I feel fortunate to be able to make a living with the resources at hand, has good as I have it, but I dont see my grandchildren doing the same. I hope I'm wrong.
