    Arctic Grizzly




    I thought I'd add a photo of an Arctic Grizzly, since bear season is fast approaching! This guy is a big bear for that area! North slope area a couple years ago.

    I'd love the opportunity to hunt one! Way out of my budget though...

    Thanks, this was during the spring and he was walking the perimeter of tundra ponds, eating goose eggs. I'm sure he was out looking for a girlfriend too. Really cool animals. I have taken a couple of them but none this good.

    I hope to take one off of Kodiak Island next spring. This guy would be on the small size over there however!

    That looks a lot like one I saw on a caribou hunt about 20years ago. We didn't have bear tags. It is still the only Griz I have ever seen in the wild. He was very impressive, BUT I did not get much sleep that night.....

    My brother-in-law took a nice one (not nearly as nice as the one pictured) on our first sheep/caribou hunt up on the North Slope. It was a great bonus, because we struck out on everything else. I made a rug out of it for him, it turned out sweet! We have seen a few on my return trips, but always something stopping me from having the opportunity ( no NR tags, inside the 5 mile corridor etc.) Hopefully if my goat hunt is successful I can really concentrate on a grizz or browny. I think these big bears are so impressive and would like to match wits with at least one!

    Nice! How close were you when you got the pic? If he's on the small size for Kodiak Island then I'll be just fine staying away from there! What a powerful and beautiful animal, thanks for sharing and good luck on your hunt.
