  • My daughter's first PWS Bear

    My daughter Mikayla shot her first bear last night and she was really excited! It was our 4th trip out in the sound out of Valdez and last night we say four different bears. Early in the hunt it was a little uncomfortable. We had just scared a sow and cub and spoked them off. I was adjusting my pack and she was leaning up against a tree and a pine cone landed on her head and she said, "Dad, there is a bear in the tree above me." Apparently the sow had two cubs, one had retreated and the other went up the tree. We high tailed it out of there and spotted this boar that sqaured a little over 6'2". She made anice shot with a 30-06 that broke both shoulders and the bear went just 20 yards. I HOPE she is now hooked for life
