  • SSE Bear hunt continues (pics)

    Bear in the Boat is a good feeling.

    The weather broke a little last week on Prince of Wales Island. The spring has been very cold with the first part of May still like winter. The Bear continue to show up on the beach as they turn green. But some parts of the uplads are turning greener faster that the beachs so i'm sure some Bear won't be drawn to the beaches like normal.

    Jeff (from Utah) traveled to POW Island to hunt with his brother who flew down from Kodiak.

    two happy brothers

    We had a great week. Jeff took a geart Bear with very nice long curly hair. He made the 125 yard shot from the point on his left with his .06 loaded with 180 grain Failsafe boollits

      john's P&Y

      A couple days earlier john made the perfect stalk on the 19 12/16"... 6 1/2 footer.

      His 70 lb Mathews Switchback shooting Gold Tip / Shuttle Lock arrows worked.

      The pack to the skiff.

        That last pic is a trophy. I think a pic like that looks as good as a rug on the wall.Horse

            the trophy pic

            Yep ... horse .... That one is a dandy.

            Brian had packed the meat out and John packed the hide. Brian (guide) saw the 'shot' and took it. We try to take a lot of pics during a hunt and most of the time don't take enough.

            You know that sometimes we are all rewarded with one very excellent picture, and thats one for sure.

                Thanks Mike .... the hunt continues

                It will be over to the Misty Fjords (mainland east of Ketchikan) next week. With the late spring and the mainland having later bear than the Islands; because of being a Glacier and colder area; the hunt sould be great. Than after that it is deep into the mainland hunting out of Hyder.

                Still plenty of more fun in the sun ... good luck to you spring bear hunters.
