    Congratulate your boys on a nice bear. Few things are more enjoyable than sharing those kinds of experiences with the ones we love most..

    I flew out there and back last week for work and never saw a single bear on the ground. I guess we were at about 5000' or so, but it seems like I would have been able to spot something with my binoculars.

    As a side note, what geologic feature am I seeing in this picture? I took it out the window last spring on the same route from FBX to GAL. I guess it's probably a little northeast of Ruby but still on the south side of the river...

    Good Going OP...

    SD...Manoman..that appears to be a major fault...nice pic. There are some quite obvious from above throughout the state. Eagle River is another Classic..major fault running right through it.

    Thanks Akres. Pretty wild that it can be as flat as a pancake for miles and miles, then drop off abruptly and be flat again for miles and miles. I'm blown away by something in Alaska every time I step out the door.

    Martentrapper, we have seen blackies out there, but seems the predominant bear tracks have long claws. All the years I've been moose hunting on the Yukon, the only bear problems were on the Koyukuk and that was with Grizzlies.
    Congrats on the boar, did you guys get the sow too?
    I've never eaten spring grizzly. Fall bears were a bit too much for my palette. Be interesting to know how he eats.
