    Default Some grizz WERE still awake....

    Did a week out in eastern Alaska looking for grizz. Tagged the first one at 105 yards on a salmon, two days later killed the second at 65 yards while it fed on the carcass of the earlier bear. both just a shade under 8' and both bears with heavy tooth wear.

    Seond had this half a salmon stashed in the grizz carcass he was munching. its my first bear thats ever been shot on a kill, 97th bear and first on a kill..pretty neat for me. tracked him in the snow and found him right where he shoulda been. oct 30st i belive it was...and COLD.

    Nice bears, Jake. Apparently bears don't chew their food completely! Which GMU were you guys in?

    Is that a 40 mile country bear?

    Thats a couple dozen caribou and moose calves that will live this spring. Good job and nice bears. I always wanted to do a grizz hunt out there, but I can never get the time to get out there for one. Seems like I always run out of vacation time. and I'm not sure a weekend would cut it going in cold.

    Smile nice

    Wow, congrats on the beautiful hides. Thats a wake up call for us couch potatos who ended our seasons a month ago. You have managed to string bear hunting from April to Nov. ****....what in the heck made you think there would still be bears out way up there?

    Feeding on the other bear amazing. We had a campfire talk about this subject last year and one guy in the party saw the closest to this. He saw a wolverine pee on a dead bear.

    Great bears
