Thread: spring Kodiak brownie

    Default spring Kodiak brownie

    I got back from my Kodiak hunt last weekend. I took this beautiful chocolate 9' bear on Raspberry Island. I got lucky because I didn't see many bears, but I did see him twice. It was great to share this hunt with my dad. We had great weather. I couldn't have done this without the help of friends and the gear they let me use. He is now at the taxidermist and I can't wait to get him back

    Nice bear and glad you had the chance to hunt with your father! Nothing like sharing a hunt let alone a successful hunt with family.

    Hey that's a nice bear. Darn big critter. Looks like you and your dad had a great time together. Hopefully someday my pops will pull his head out of the office and do something like that with me.
    Congrats man!

    Nice. Rather be lucky than good, right?

    Nice bear. I'd like to hunt Kodiak for brown bear. In Dec. 2010 are we putting in for fall '11 brown bear? I can't remember....

    Default dads and sons

    I've been lucky enough to have my dad as my moose hunting partner since 97. They are some of my best memories and I can't wait to share the same with my three sons.

    Great Bear!

    Default Very cool

    I wonder if that's the bear I saw on the beach last October. Is that Onion Bay in the background?
    Good job!

    I have never seen a big bear like that up close. Must be so rewarding to have taken such a animal with your Dad along. Good memories and good company make the hunt so much more enjoyable. Someday i would like to post something similar as to yours. I will settle with the wifes cow moose tagged out last year though for now. Thanks for taking time to show off a little! A Follow up with more details of how and what it took to bring him down would be great to read.

    very cool pict of the bear on his back, he looks HUGE!

    Nice bear indeed! What'd you shoot him with and how far did he travel?

    Default details

    I originally set my sights right behind the shoulder. I couldn't stop him, just like every other bear I saw. So I let one loose(.300 win mag, 220 gr Accubond). It hit him in the shoulder instead of the vitals and broke the shoulder. He get going up the hill and I hit him again the the back. He then rolled down a couple of hills and I thought he was done. The bear started making a bed and I waited. After a while I decided to go into the alder after him. Not fair to the bear to just wait. I worked my way through the alder and finished him at 60 yds. one small rub. squared at 9' and his skull was 26 13/16.
