Wonder what kind of premium you have to pay to go on a hunt like that?

I don't know but think it would be worth it, to come home with a trophy like that.

Re: Where can I hunt bears like this?

It's cheaper than Kodiak for a non-res and so is Africa for that matter, not sure how much though. You should have seen the helicopter those boys flew over there in! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] You wouldn't catch me dead in that old thing! I think it had some serious TIME on her! Kinda resembled, well... flying JUNK! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

They were probably commited so they just closed their eyes and prayed!! Did I mention the old Alpine snomachines too? Yes they had to change an engine in the field on one of them too! [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img] No prob, got a spare in the sled [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img], but we'll SWAP pistons first and try that! Oops not going to work, just be a minute and the other engine will be in... Off we go! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] What a hoot that vidio was, I was laughin my ass off...

They are awesome bears.

You may find big bears at Kodiak Island in Alaska. I believe there are some 10 footers there.

I'm thinking these are probably 10 ft plus bears (squared).



I figure the man is 5'8" (68")... the bear is just under 1.5 times the man's height (about 5 inches short) so 68 + 29 = 97 , plus the length of the bear's head, give 24" more, 97 + 24 = 121".

I guess the point is, they're probably shooters.

Dave if those bears are probably shooters. I'ld hate to be on a hunting trip with you,when you find a definite shooter. That you wanted to keep. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Texas

When I first opened this tread I thought those were groundhogs [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] but after a second glance I saw they were just bears...

Reminded me of a hunt I took a fella on once... I believe the scale is about correct, just that the positions are sort of reversed. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]



Met this fella (hope I have his name correct) at a rifle shoot, he'd never been hunting in the U.S. He's an Italian living in Germany. We managed to get him a ground hog and a few crop damage deer...very nice guy.
