Re: Coastal Brown Bear

Hey, not long winded at all! Thanks for the story. Good for you for sticking to it and passing on those other bears. Not many would have passed that 8.5' in the last hrs of the hunt. How big did your bear measure? Didn't notice if you wrote that.

Cheers!

    That is a very nice picture. I hate the ones where people are sitting on the animals.

    What bow and what arrows and broadhead did you use.

    Thanks. I still don't have this adding photos down too well but here goes with a couple more. Also, the bow is Bowtech 101st airborne @ 70 lbs, arrows are easton axis w/2"blasers and broadheads are 100 gr. slick tricks standards. Because of expected high winds I chose to do away with a bow quiver so went with the cat quiver.

    According to latest data, this guy ranks number 12 in Pope and Young. Hide squared a couple of inches over the magical 10 footer. I'm first to admit luck played a significant part in my taking such a great trophy. Hunting gods worked overtime for me that day.

    It was more than just "luck". If you would have shot one of those other's, which most hunters would have, you wouldn't have had the chance to be "lucky".

    Gator,
    Kudos on the splendid bear. Nicely done. "As advdrtised" weather aside, sounds like a dumptruck load of fun!

    Paul, I like the signature line!
