  • The kids got bears

    I will start by saying very strange season with lack of snow this spring. We went twice, first trip May 7 to 10th saw 7 different bears pursued several multiple times but with minimal snow they were high and moving around freely with food everywhere. My daughter took this sow which I am sure is the oldest bear I have seen taken out of more than Fifty. She took her with one shot from the Ruger compact .308 Remington managed recoil 125 gr. at 27 steps. The old girls eyes were milked over with cataracts and it was hard to believe she was able to get up from the den by the looks of her body condition. Very long front claws possibly due to lack of muscularity left to dig with. My daughter was very excited to harvest such an old animal.

      Second trip

      We went back May 21 to 23rd saw 5 adult bears 3 legal, very tough it was greener than I have seen it in 30 years. My 10 year old son was able to take this large sow at 70 to 80 yards with one shot from the .308 Ruger american compact with 170 gr fusion lite s.p. This was the last night last light, and we finished and got back to camp at 1:00 am. The bugs got really bad while skinning but it was worth it. This was an older bear also but nothing like my daughters.

        Congratulations to both hunters, well done.
        ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, it is a delightful place to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

          Well done Dad! Congratulations to the kids.

          Your daughter's bear has got the longest claws I've even seen on a black bear. Outstanding!

                    Awesome job trapper. Way to start your kids with their hunting success. They will be proud when the family enjoys their bear harvest in the crock pot. Some tasty trophies and proud hunters there!

                      A couple more pics

                      My boys bear was missing her right ear and had a severly deformed hind foot, that looked like an old injury. The toes were staggered and it had no main pad just furred skin.
