I just got back to Germany from my Alaska Bear hunting trip. It was a short hunt as I tagged my bear the first morning at 8:00. The bears are thick up there, we saw 7 bears in 2 days and I'm sure we drove past a ton of them in the thick brush. I took my bow up there but I ended up shooting him with a 30-06. I didn't have time to do the Alaska bow hunting certification. I learned a few things on this trip and will definitely be better prepared next time. I would like to go back and try again next year for a brown bear. I did get some salmon fishing in after the hunt. The pinks were in thick from the salt water to the end of the streams with tons of them already dead after spawning. enjoy the pictures.
Good luck to you guys this year
