Didn't see from before, did he get a return trip offered by the same outfitter?

10-May-12

Yes the outfitter offered Tim a pretty good return deal, so he jumped at it. He basically came home for 5 days and turned around and went right back.

Tim,

The "pressure" is now off, my friend. Congratulations on your bear! Looking forward to the photos...

Enjoy your last few days with the Inuits of the arctic, as you may never be back there again. Take enough photos to last a lifetime....as they just may have to do that!!

What a emotional ride for you Tim, looking forward to the photos!

From: T Mac
11-May-12
Wow BPM outstanding! Your voice exudes gratitude and that is real nice to hear. All the best in your return trip home.

From: Shiras@home
11-May-12
Great job! I can hear a lot of conflict in your voice. Happiness, relief and maybe just a little sorrow that it is over, even a little anger that it will have to stay north of the border. Anyway, congratulations!

From: njbuck
11-May-12
Simply amazing, I am not sure if I could handle those swings of emotion. A week ago coming home from one of the most expensive hunts out there knowing some things didnt work out the way you had planned then a week later you are standing over the trophy of a lifetime. Outstanding, great job and many congrats Tim. I am so happy for you.

Cant wait to see the pictures!

Great job and thanks (again) for takin' us along. funny, sitting here it all seemed to go so fast and easy this time..... LOL!

sucks that you can't bring him home. hopefully that can be fixed in the future. whoever you give him to, make sure they understand it's temporary custody.... =D

From: Jim in PA

Congratulations Tim. You are the picture of determination. Not many would turn around, Go back in less than a week and make the best of the opportunity you had. Hopefully the Govt. will see how foolish this is and change the regs someday. Even if they don't you had the opportunity of of a lifetime.

Jim

What is done with the hide. Just leave with taxiidermist so maybe one day it can be brought back?

From: Clutch
13-May-12
Bou--Yes, it can be left with a taxidermist there, left with a friend there, it can be sold there and recover some of your expenses or wait it out for laws to change-- BPM is trying to arrange a new flight schedule to return home--so far that's not going very well--nothing definite yet--he may just have to buy someones ticket at the airport if he wants to get home early--????

From: Bou'bound
13-May-12
clutch

I bet the story about the difficulty in returning home is a just cover up for the fact he has a contracted a severe case of HSAD.

better know as Hide Separation Anxiety Disorder.

it is fairly common amoung successful polar bear hunters but only seems to afflict those who are US residents.
