    Re: Chris and me went bear huntin\'

    I'm home!!!

    Survived the trip and had a great time except when I nearly drown in the muskeg doing the "snow gator".

    Final score as Chris mentioned; Dave and Chris - 3, bears -0


    Hear are a few picts.


    Here's Main Camp as we were packing to leave.




    Here's our host, Vern Mochid at spike camp... this is the cleanest I saw him so it's an unusual picture.




    This is Chris just after arriving at Spike Camp. It was a 3 hour ride through thawing muskeg, lots of "get off and push/pull" to make it.




    Here's Chris, me and a very dead bear. Chris's first bear!



    Picture of the bear the next morning.



    and another from the night before.




    Little comparison pict, $5 Canadian and the hole a 308 makes in a bear's head.





    Here's a picture of Steve, our cook, sitting on a septarian nodule we played with for a while.

    The second bear was a quartering away shot while he was laying down at the bait after a short stand off between him and me at 20-30 feet. MatchKing went through both lungs, heart and demolished off side shoulder. Almost kinda like I planned it that way... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Bear rolled over once and was dead. Somebody should tell me I shouldn't be using these silly MK on animals because why?!!!!
    I know why...because they KILL things!!!
