    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    Natural means as born. So man was not born with tools. The Kodiak Brown Bear Has only ever had ONE natural enemy that killed the brown bears as part of it's normal diet.

    It is a trick question: read carefully......You will kick yourself when someone gets it. You will say I knew that.

    The Sabertooth Tiger is the correct answer. Reread the question.

    Did a lot of "glassing" on Kodiak - never saw one of those Sabertooths; probably just didn't develop the proper "search image"! What do their tracks look like? (Did see a fair number of bears being "munched" on by other bears).
    Why was this thread moved? just curious.

    Didn't get in quick enough but I was also going to say Itself, or maybe Salmon, as in weak Salmon runs = starvation ?
    Ten Hours in that little raft off the AK peninsula, blowin' NW 60, in November.... "the Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue," and Yes, God is Good !

    Not saying you are wrong, because I didn't live in the Pleistocene, but just curious, where are you getting this info? In what way was the Saber-toothed tiger an enemy of the Kodiak Brown Bear? Is there fossil evidence to support this? Did saber tooth's use their long teeth to shish kabob salmon or something? Or were they merely two large meat eaters that lived in close proximity?

    White man with firestick?

    Bigger brown bears? The big one I shot had his tail bitten off. I don't think it was a sabertooth, but I'll think more about that.

    Because, while interesting, it has nothing to do with hunting. As such, it was moved to the wildlife forum.
