First longbow bear.
Three from this week. I didn’t kill one yet, but did take a few runs at a couple of big guys. Probably saw four or five over-sized boars and dozens of P&Y qualifiers. Over a hundred bb’s and thirteen grizzlies, including two cubs.

From: Medicinemann

I have always observed that when the head of a bear looks small, in relation to its overall body size, it is a big bear. If the head looks big, it tends to be a smaller bear. REGARDLESS of that observation (whether it is actually true or not), look at the head on that photo of the grizzly that was posted.....that is impressive.

Well done Nick!

Congrats Nick! Rod, that looks like an exciting hunt! Noah and I are heading into the bear blind tomorrow or a rare morning hunt. Gotta take advantage of the wind when we can.

From: Ambush
11-May-20
Good luck David!!

It’s actually a pretty laid back hunt. We are swamped with bears, so killing one is no problem. But, like with any species, there’s only a few exceptional animals. The biggest one we saw this trip, got killed by a semi the next morning.

If this was an “Almost” thread. Went out in the afternoon to scout some elk spots and then look for bears on the way back. Saw about fifteen and a couple decent ones. Should have shot (at) a very nice chocolate boar on the way out, but didn’t. I was carrying a recurve so the size standard could be lower. Then we saw this guy! I got within twenty two yards on the first try. Next two attempts didn’t pan out either. Fifteen yards was my goal, but may have tried twenty. Couldn’t bring myself to shoot a smaller bear after seeing this one. Not much green and there was a very chubby sow just a hundred yards away, so hoping he’ll stick around. I think he digs fat chicks.

EDIT: pic won't show, just keep getting that stupid "ERROR Message" again. try later

Carcus, Noah and I had a great bear hunt. Noah got a shot at this giant of a bear the same evening Carcus got his. Lots of memories made, and great campfire stories recounting our hunts. Noah's shot was a bit far back, so in the morning we decided to take care of Carcus' 7'6 chocolate, such a beast of a bear! Then it was off to look for Noah's bear, it was a long track job and truly a team effort by all 3 of us. We were happy that the trail ended with a 7'7 behemoth.

From: walleyes

Dino - I use slick trick mag Broadheads and whatever arrows I have left after the fall season in this case a Easton bloodline with 50 grain insert. In the case of bears I like big holes as they tend to leave poor blood trails compared to deer elk where I have been trying vipertricks with great success

From: Kurt
19-May-20
You can add one more to the list...I arrowed a decent P&Y bear an hour from home while social distancing a few days ago. I'd seen his scat and tracks over the past two weeks but took me quite a few days to finally lay eyes on him. Stalked in from a 1/4 mile down to 30 yards.

With no non resident hunts this spring I ask a friend to bring up some kids to hunt their first bears. It is always great to see kids excited when their first big game animal hits the ground. No giants hit the ground just solid 6 footers. Although one of the kids missed a giant early in the hunt.

Pretty simple, set up bait station with 907 scents, do a few paint can burns, try to pattern a shooter. First go at this and virgin bait site- our area is a 1 Brown Bear every regulatory year and 3 black bears- the only Resident Seal metal ring hunt other than muskox- whopping cost- $69 annual hunting and fishing license- Brownie ring-$25. Brown Bear harvest ticket and 3 black bear tickets, like all species for Residents no additional cost. Oh, and print harvest ticket on home printer. Our Area is limited to 3 Black Bears but system still prints all 5 out.

I’d say you had your list upside down when you checked off a brown bear from your Alaskan animals list as the first one, MathewsMan! Congrats on a great bear!

What is a “paint can burn”?

From: MathewsMan
07-Jun-20
Thanks Nick, I’m stoked about it.

So I was not getting much activity so I rigged up a Gallon paint can with holes around the base, then Above stereo have a quart can that sits above a small stereno can. The honey or scent liquid like the to die for stuff vaporizes or smokes as an attractant.

I use a wire hook and hang it from a limb.

Alaska bear season for non-residents opened on June 1st. Was lucky enough to arrow this Brown bear over bait in the Cook Inlet region on the night of June 3rd. Didn't measure the hide but the skull green-scored about 25-10/16". A great hunt thanks to Jonah Stewart. Three hunters in camp went 3 for 3 on brown bears for the week.

Stud bear Greg. Jonah is the way to go for sure.

Bears are starting to rub out here, and more Brown Bears now that the area here is close for them.

All of the above bears were taken by Alberta resident hunters due to the USA border closure. All colored bears were off limits to kill except on the one family and friends bait that’s in an out of the way spot. That’s where Josh and Chris fluked into the big colored one above!

The season was a lot of work and some fun with my wife cooking and me guiding. Hopefully things get back to normal for next spring!

Our season came to an end last night. What a great time in bear camp. We are blessed to spend every weekend for most of May and all of June running baits and hunting bears with friends. My boys were all able to shoot bears, 3 rifle and 1 with his bow. Tough year on recovery as we had two we shot we did not find and another one that took birds to locate 2 weeks later. Lots learned and grateful to SVRELK and HUNTMAN for their friendship and help. I got too many kids....... cant do it alone! Another fun season in the books. Enjoy summer.....its gonna go quick.

Sawyer notching the sign after they recovered his bear. (Not gonna post pics of bear) He made a perfect double lung shot but we were not able to find him in time. Tough country to locate dead bears in! We even had Jims hound in camp and ran him through after we grid searched and still no luck. He was 120 yards from the bait. Sad to not have the recovery and photos with him but grateful to get closure and know the show was right. We were able to save the skull/claws. Would NOT have found this bear without Jim (svrelk)
