        Black Bear

        I do know ADFG Soldotna sealed a big blackie the other day. Skull over 18"! And fur to die for. Was an old boar out early, had worn down and some missing teeth.

          nope!!!!! grab a good 55 grain Ballistic tip and dang .. oyur good to go. they have small bones, thin skin, and easy to kill..

            hey thanks for the update

            saw grizzum tracks today near knik river crossing....incidentally, i also saw newborn moose calf tracks within a 1/4 mile of each other....this is the same bear we think we have been seeing sign of for the last 6 years....we never have seen him, really thick brush and a huge area.... mostly we've seen his tracks along the edge of the palmer gravel pits next to the knik/matanuska river delta, but have seen the same tracks following late run silvers up an unnamed creek that crosses thru the area 5 or 6 foot miles away...that area is just endless seems like, its our favorite place to hunt ducks on opening day.

              No prob if you shoot him through both lungs. Gurgle-gurgrrrrle and its over.

              On the Kenai, I hunt high on south facing slopes with fresh "baby" green grass...and in May.
