  • Bear Mauling at Skilak

    Apparently 2 kayakers were mauled late last night where the Kenai runs into Skilak. They had to paddle all the way to the upper boat launch to call for help at 4 am. Got medivaced.

    How far of a distance is that to paddle.........??? Thanks for the post.
    ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, balls'to the wall, the pedal floored, full throttle, it is a delightful place, to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

      Upper Skilak campground to the outlet is about 7 miles of shoreline.

      Edit: With the updated info that they were at Hidden Creek; the distance from there to Upper Skilak Campground is about 6.25 miles.

          To stay composed enough to get in kayak and paddle out after a mauling is impressive. Glad they made it.

            Yea........I have a hard time staying composed enough to remember how to "walk" especially with my bloomers full of brown stinky poopy stuff.

                <br/><br/>It takes me about 45-60 minutes to motor from the inlet to the upper Skilak campground, I canít imagine paddling it in a kayak after I had been mauled by a bear. Hope they both make full recoveries.<br/><br/><br/>Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
