Arctic Grizzly
« on: June 03, 2017, 08:57:43 AM »


Just returned from an amazing hunt, taking wolf and grizzly above the arctic circle. These bears are smaller than their salmon-fed coastal cousins, but incredible in their own right. I've wanted to hunt grizzly in the arctic since I was a kid, 50 years ago. So, I made it happen.

Am so glad to have had the opportunity to hunt the arctic! It was everything I'd imagined and more.











Two hunters, two guides. Two good bears and a wolf down. Hours, no days, of glassing... Crazy weather. It was a great hunt!

Guy

Will do.

Now I have to catch up on three weeks worth of the "honey do list" here at home!
