As a few of you on here I have been planning a grizzly bear hunt in British Colombia for a while now. Well, the contract has been signed and the deposit check has been sent to the outfitter.
This is something that I have been wanting to do since I was in grade school watching American Sportsman and reading everything I could in Outdoor Life and Sports Afield. The hunt will be next May/June in the Purcell Mountain Wilderness, and we will ride horses 21 miles back into it. Looking at the logistics of the trip I believe that I will be driving up there from my sisters house in Utah and break the trip going up into two legs. One to Eureka, Montana where I'll spend a night and then the next morning I'll finish the drive to their trail head. The trip home may be a killer if I manage to harvest a grizzly and or a black bear but then it will only be 900 miles to my sisters to where I can spend the night and then home. I still need to contact the taxidermist that Elkkill06, and Alpine_Archer provided me along with another one that I have work done by.
Now I just need to get my ammo reloaded, a few items picked up for the hunt and then the wait will begin. Only 10 more months to wait.
