    Default Great hide?

    From your pictures, the hide looks great. What's the plan? Full or rug?
    Congratulations!

    NICE Bear, plus a HUGE skull.......great trophy!

    If you didn't say it was a Novemeber hunt, I would have guessed it was a Spring hunt based on the snowy conditions.

    Like everone else, I'm hanging on for more hunt details...full report?

    Good Hunting..>Byron

    That is an awesome bear. I'm headed to Kodiak that same week in '07 for Blacktails, and hopefully get some pictures of some bear.

    I was on a guided hunt in the Red Lake area.It snowed off and on
    for seven staight days. Some days visibility was very poor. We passed on a
    9 footer early in the hunt that was badly rubbed. We spotted this bear on
    the 12th day digging roots out in the open but before we could get to him
    he walked into a patch of willows. We waited all afternoon for him to come out. We tried a fawn bleat call but he did'nt respond. Late in the day my
    guide decided he would have to push him to me. He went around to the
    other side and started in on the bears tracks. It was'nt long before I heard
    the bear ''woof'' and the guide yelled ''He's coming at you''. I could see the
    tops of the willows moving and could tell he was coming in my direction.
    He popped out sixty yards from me and stopped and turned to look back
    where the guide was. I shot him once in the chest and he started up to me
    getting closer but at an angle not at me. I shot him twice more in the chest
    and my fourth shot he was in the wide open forty yards away and I put it right on his shoulder and fired. I was suprised to see him still standing and looking around after my last shot! I had a clip in my pocket but did'nt feel
    comfortable fumbling with that so I reached into my other pocket and pulled
    out a loose shell. As I closed the bolt on the gun the bear went down! His
    fur was beautiful with not a rub on it. Never actually squared it but the guide
    measured it on the carcass and said it would go 9'9". Front pad was 9" across.I plan on getting a full mount. Here's another picture you can look
    at.

    12 day's of hunting, I'd say you got your money's worth on that hunt......HEHE! I've tried pushing bear's a few times and the bugger's tended to go exactly where I did'nt want them to go.......Glad it worked out for you, great story! Your bear has beautiful pelt, a very good trophy.

    Alaska Cub, I think your thinking of the guy who works for the fire dept at the CG base. He nailed a monster on the roadsystem last fall that went 29 3/8" or 29 5/8" and 10'4" or 10'6". A real monster of a bear. Also heard where he shot it and if he was up in there he definetly earned it too.

    MRC nice bear and great story of the hunt.
