Alaskan Kodiak

Just returned from SW Alaska taking a Kodiak Brown Bear.After dogging this guy for a mile he stalled over the backside of a ridge eating berries bringing me to a 15 yard standoff, in a mili second he turned broadside, taking out both shoulders with a 375 ruger dropping him, with a follow up shot to seal the deal. What a rush. Alaska Fish & Game has preliminary aged the bear at 24-28 years old, with a B&C skull,10' squared, weighing apprx. 900+pounds, ranking him in the top 1% of the Kodiaks harvested in Alaska this year in age and skull size.

Re: Alaskan Kodiak

Thanks for sharing your hunt and pictures. Clearly an old brute, based on the condition of his teeth. Congratulations on taking this old mature boar.

Re: Alaskan Kodiak

The Picture of his teeth is reason he was eating berry's at 24/28 years most likely was hard for him to eat a lot of meat.
Hope you get in the record books
