A young man was mauled by a brown bear last night near K beach road between Soldotna and Kenai. Nothing life threatening thankfully. Lots of puncture wounds and a 4 or 5 inch circle of scalp torn back by claws. Be careful out there.
Blink said:Alaska hippie, there wont be another brown bear hunt on the pen. plain and simple. Fish and game along with the board says there arent enough bears to sustain a hunt. me says maybe they better get off there butts and go hiking.
They try to please us by saying if x amount of bears dont get shot by DLP there will be a hunt. you would think they would learn that every year a dozen + bears get shot that maybe there numbers are wrong. I may be wrong (has happened before..lol) but there is a decent number of bears for a hunt.
AlaskaHippie said:Great points.
...be nice to see some culling of the numbers especially in regards to bears that've been de-sensitized to humans....

It happens every summer. On any given day from late June to early August, as many as 50 brown bears may converge on Alaska’s McNeil River Falls
