Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

Thanks to all, the outfitter was Art Hirschel out of Delta Junction. He guides quite a few bear hunters every year and has good success. He runs a no-nonsense camp and will work hard for your bear. I was very pleased with him. He is a good guy and does what he says. Just understand he does not hunt 1000 pound coastal bears or even near the coast bears. These are true interior tundra grizzlies that get the prettiest color phases in Alaska. The price for his hunts are very fair for what he offers. Art and I jogged/ran/fast walked nearly four miles to catch up to this bear because we wanted the color phase. Art will work his butt off for your bear.

Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

No matter the size, any grizzly is a great trophy. I've been fortunate enough to kill a couple. One was a small three year old and one was a few years older, but I was equally happy with both bears.

Unless I'm specifically hunting brownies on the coast, If I've got a tag in my pocket and I have an opportunity to take a legal interior grizz, it's going down.

Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

Congratulations on a nice bear, that will make a nice rug. Interior grizzlies run much smaller than their costal cousins but there are some big interior bears out there.

I shot a sow that was collared and I found out from fish and game that she was 30 years old. She squared a litle over 7 1/2 feet and we guessed her weight to be around 650 pounds from past history, measurements and pictures. We've had a boar that makes one pass under our meat poles every year just to check to see if we've left some of the quarters hanging a little too low. His front print measures 8 1/2" which approximates to a 9 1/2 foot bear. We've managed to catch a glimpse of him a couple of times and he is a monster, very dark not that pretty blonde like you tagged.

Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

Speedo I agree, A big interior bear pops up every now and then. Way more in the past. With hunting pressure in the interior over the past 40 years just hard to find one of those 20-30 year old bears. But they do happen on occasion. I saw a huge one year before last about 30 miles from where you live. Have hunted near you a few times through the years up and down the big and little Su drainage.

Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

LTLR,

Beautiful bear and great story. I just picked up a 338 WM for future trips such as yours. I had a friend that worked at PMC back when the original Barnes X came out and PMC began factory loading them. He sent me some to try out of my new 300 Weatherby for PA Whitetails and I believe I penciled through them, as I shot one doe at probably 20 yards and she just ran off.

I'd like to pm you sometime about your 338 and about the Weatherbys.

Congratulations on the Blondie! Please be sure to post a picture of the rug when it comes back.

Re: 2010 Interior Grizzly

Damn I'm jealous!

What did the hunt cost you?

Would you recommend the outfitter? If so, who was he. Give us hunt details!

In case I didn't say it, CONGRATULATIONS!
