Re: Bears Feeding Frenzy !

I'd guess he's thinking of ending his suffering with it .
The vast marjority of the bears on kodiak do hibernate in the winter. There is the occaisional bear that will stay out later than the rest or not hibernate at all, but it is this way in all the coastal areas of alaska. I saw tracks in the snow on 1/1/09 of a good sized bear on the kenai peninsula and have see their tracks here every month of the year. The bears on kodiak and on the alaska peninsula are very comparable in size and I believe it has to do with the favorable habitat. Lot's of salmon streams and generally warmer weather than other parts of the state. There are some really big bear in other areas as well, but kodiak and the ak peninsula has more open country and is generally easier to hunt.

Akbushape, I've been fortunate enough to have hunted both Kodiak and the Peninsular (years apart) and agree that their size are comparable. I admit this is based on only a couple of weeks at both places. There may be other areas where seeing 9 1/2 + foot plus bears is a good possibility but my limited experience tell me where to go if this be what I'm looking for.

Re: Bears Feeding Frenzy !

the reason they are so large is WHAT they eat... COSTAL SALMON AND OTHER FISH... extremely high protein diets..all year long

other browns have to scrounge and hunt mammals year round.. thats not as easy of a meal to get on a dailly basis as washed up and trapped in tidal ponds salmons and other fishes on endless miles of beaches and shoreline

you will find that browns on the mainland coast ( costal browns) are as large
but fewer in number...eat about same stuff

Re: Bears Feeding Frenzy !

You're right DogZilla. I have taken some 10 foot plus bears off the Kenai
peninsula in the past. It's a lot brushier country than Kodiak or the AK
peninsula, so it's harder to hunt, but there some some big bear to found here.
The grizzlys in the interior of alaska have a much tougher life than the bears
that have access to slamon, and that is reflected in their size.
