Not a real big hunt story on this one, but here is the story of my grizzly hunt that completed my archery Superslam.

After reaching #28 last fall I was anxious to hunt and get after a grizzly to hopefully finish the 29.

Spring hunts were going to be tough this year due to my son graduating along with everything that comes with that and I wasn't willing to miss any of his senior year baseball games. I wanted ample time for the hunt and to not feel pressured to rush home so I didn't miss important life milestones.

I contacted Jonah Stewart and he offered up any time in early August that I could get there before sheep season started. I took him up on that and last November cashed in my AK Airlines miles for a first class one way ticket on Aug 2, I was hoping to not come home until my tag was filled.

As with most everything , time flew by way too fast and Aug 2 was here. Long but uneventful flights from Philly - Seattle - Fairbanks, slept a few hours in the airport then to Wright Air for and early afternoon flight to Coldfoot. After being picked up at the airport and getting everything ready and shooting bow at Jonahs Wiseman camp it was time to head out.

From: huntinelk
06-Aug-23
The plan was Jonah was flying gear into a camp and my guide Gabe and I were getting dropped off at a small air strip about 40 miles from camp to get flown in to a remote camp.

While driving towards the air strip a grizzly was spotted along the Haul Road within the archery corridor. There were 3 AK guides in the truck with me and all agreed that it was a shooter bear and we needed to make a move on it.

After dodging some traffic that included sight seers and heavy truck traffic we were able to make a move on the bear without an audience. The bear was very occupied digging roots and eating berries. After a few minutes I was 15 yards from a broadside feeding grizzly and what should be a slam dunk shot to complete the goal that I had come there to finish.

The bear was a bit downhill with his head down and behind a bush. As I began to draw he turned slightly quartering away. I settled the pin about mid body to account for the angle and triggered the release. To my surprise when the arrow hit the bear it knocked him flat to the ground. He gathered himself a bit and managed to stagger and roll a few times covering about 25 yards and was dead. Less than 5 hours from arriving in Coldfoot it was over. The short blood trail was as impressive as any I have seen.

Archery Superslam #44. According to those that are listed, I believe that I may be the first person from PA.

Information that I have gathered from the members of this website over the years has been priceless chasing this goal. Thanks to all those that have shared information and their own stories over the years. It has been truly appreciated.

From: huntinelk

Thanks again.

I used a Rage Extreme on this bear. I think due to the downward angle and solid impact on opposite shoulder is what knocked the bear to the ground.

Hopefully my next new species will be an alligator from FL using our own boat and gear in mid October

Glad to see Jonah step it up! I was appalled that he put me in a spot that took me 9 whole hours to get a bear down. 5 hours is more like it!

What do you consider your hardest animal to get and how many trips did it take?

From: huntinelk
09-Aug-23
The hardest animal to get dead was the dall sheep, but that was due to operator error. That was overall the toughest hunt physically of all of them.

I killed a Canada moose on my third trip for them. Those hunts weren't too physically demanding, just was unlucky.

You were fortunate to kill your stone sheep in a Dall area for what I assume was for a Dall Sheep price. Two thumbs up and thanks for sharing your pictures!

Bringing this up to put the ending to it. This weekend I went to Nashville with my wife for the modified GSCO one day convention this year. Like them or hate them they are the keeper of the Super Slam records. It was a great way to put the finishing touch to this journey. Again all the help, support and information during this journey given by fellow bowhunters was huge and wouldn't have been possible without a super supportive and understanding wife.

Jonah Stewart also received his gs plaque. I originally met Jonah on a Q/L caribou hunt in 2016 then ended up killing 4 species with him on this journey. He is a great guy and outfitter.
