new brown bear regulations

I was talking to a brown bear guide yesterday and he told me about some new reg. that basically says if you draw blood on a brown bear and don't ret rieve it your done. I don't know if he meant, you can't bear hunt anymore for ever or you forfit for four years. this was here in Southeast Ak. Has anyone heard of this? It was a short conversation in passing so I didn't clarify.

bear regs

I just found a spot on the net that stated wounded black or brown bear that are wounded and not recovered will count against the hunter for the remainder of that year. This is in units 1 through 4 or basically Southeast AK. I suppose that will make hunters be a little more careful with their shot selections.

new brown bear regulations

you are correct. i shot a grizzly in zone 17 last 9/26/2005 right at sunset. my guide said we would have to wait till the next morning to search for it since it darted into thick cover. all night i had to wonder if it was dead or not because
the guide said since there was a blood trail, the hunt was over, whether or not if we found it. it was 800lbs, squared out at 8 ft 2 inches, a real beauty. but yes
you better make a good shot or you will waste all that money getting into a real expensive hunt.
