Nice Hunt.......congratulations. And I especially liked that there was no mention of the bears size. It was the hunt and the tracking that is important, not the size.

Great story and great read, congratulations! Strangely, I never have; and still don't have an aspiration to hunt and kill a bear. I'll stick with blacktails and mountain goats.

It was the hunt and the tracking that is important, not the size.

By your own admission:
"Many times I’ve sought out these large, mature Brown bears roaming these wild places. This spring was to be such a time."

And since many others have posted size figures, and ADF&G takes skull measurements..................would be interested in the skull and hide square.

Good story. Good job on sticking with it. Interested in the dog. A springer? Did you train him to follow bears?
