    June issue will have my Alaskan brown bear hunt as a feature - dream hunt came true. We (bear and I) will be in Houston for the annual convention, we will be hanging-out at the T/C booth...

    Damn, congrats! That'll be a helluva hunt. I used to work for the NRA here for 2 1/2 years - thanks for supporting our rights, fellow shooter!

    Actually it was a helluva hunt. The bear is already stuffed and mounted.

    Ian give our friend a link to the pictures of you and Len by your bear. I looked (quickly) for it the other day and didn't find it.

    Good memory. Congrats as well, again.

    BTW This got me wondering if you have had an time to copy that training info we had discussed earlier this year? I know you are busy and I'm in no rush for it but I thought I would ask.

    I have read an advance copy of Ian's article. Now, if I had been in that bear camp standing next to Ian as his bear bore down on us...my pants would have been the color of the bear! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Years ago a famous ALASKA guide said to me , while viewing pics from his hunter/client"s full size and upright bear mount. "You know if the bear really looked like that in the field, nobody would hunt them". Low these many years have not proved him wrong. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Read the art. Very good. That's kinda why I upgraded from a 270 Win to 375 H&H for where the Elk and Bruin habs overlap /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Also will nap @ night in a tin can on wheels vs. the tent. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Ian - I finally got a chance to read the article. You should be a freelance writer or something. Great piece but it gave me nightmares. I think I'll sleep with my gun tonight. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif
