It is really nice to pull-off a ten day hunt on the second day. Saw another shooter that was quite a bit bigger than this 9' 01" bear, but the wind was wrong to do a stalk, and he was going away from us.
Needless to say, my hunter was extremely happy.
I've got to crop that shadow out of the picture of me.

Great looking brown bears everyone!

Waggler I really like that light coloring of your clients bear. You don't seem to run across many that size that light.

Waggler, is that terrain as difficult to get around in as it looks?
Great bears, everyone!

Brutal.
I was in a four seater plane flying across that country once with a couple of guys from a big state in the lower 48; the two guys both about three hundred pounders. They were chuckling about how easy that flat terrain was going to be to move around in; little did they know.
Thankfully they were not my clients.

Would love to hear the stories about these bear. Not just these, but some of your guys more memorable ones. They are on the bucket list, but we will see. By the time I save up enough, might be too old.

My first encounter with similar ground was west of Illiamna, caribou hunting. Drop hunt, and no 'bou around camp, but day 3 I spot a bull about 2 miles away.
Piece of cake. Got the bull, but learned a terrible lesson.
The rest of the trip was spent hunting within 1/4 mile of camp.

Beautiful bear Waggler, while any Large bear is an awesome creature that one is beautiful as well

My hunter sent me a few more pictures. We can glass about 25 square miles from our glassing knob. All the pale colored ground is very difficult to traverse.
