Want to hunt a "Pizzly"?
So my wife is reading National Geographic last night and asks me if I know what a "Pizzly" is?
"No", I respond. "It is a cross between a Grizzly and a Polar Bear", she says.
Hmm, I go.
Maybe it would be a shortcut to getting a Grand Slam! Two for one! Or maybe it could be the replacement species for the Quebec/Labrador Caribou that we can no longer hunt so they could still have 29 species?
Yeah, I get silly sometimes.
I was hunting polar bear at the time the time when one of the two Pizzly bears was killed. Went to the taxidermist with the hunter even. It was a cool bear. I believe my guide for Muskox killed the other i know about a couple years later.
They have become more common, probably because people (biologists) are looking for them. Never heard of them called "pizzly's" rather grolar bears. I hunted muskox on Victoria Island and there was a mounted one in the little airport of Uluhuktuk. The second one killed close to the village. They've also been confirmed in Labrador
Nature at work.
Yeah..... pizzly sounds like something Tigger would call it...... the Winnie effect....
I'd hunt one in a second but not sure what tag one would need? Also makes me wonder which one was the rolling stone......
I would much rather have my obituary say I got mauled by a grizzly or polar bear than a "pizzly"
I thought he was referring to what older men do in their shorts when they sneeze.
