Here Are The Top 10 Best Shots Of Alaskan Brown Bear Hunts
It takes a certain type of man to go out into the Alaskan wilderness and hunt a bear that out-weighs him by 800 to 1000 pounds. If your first shot isn’t true, you’ll just piss the animal off and he’ll charge you and turn you into a grease spot.
I once had a friend who paid for a hunt on Kodiak island to hunt bear there and when the moment of truth came and he had a Kodiak bear in his sights, he didn’t take the shot. He realized, that if he didn’t take the animal down with one shot, he would have no place to run to to escape the pissed-off animal. He also said, that the particular bear he was going to shoot, was standing-up on it hind legs, and was at least 9 to 11 feet tall…that’s a BIG BEAR.
Wikipedia has this to say about the Alaskan Brown Bear:
The Alaska Peninsula brown bear is any member of the grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) that lives in the coastal regions of southern Alaska. Alaska Peninsula brown bears are a very large brown bear subspecies, usually ranging in weight from 800 to 1,200 pounds (363 to 544 kg).
They are found in high densities along the southern Alaskan coast due not only to the large amount of clams and sedge grass but also to the annual salmon runs; this allows them to attain huge sizes, some of the biggest in the world. They may gather in large numbers at feeding sites, such as Brooks Falls and McNeil Falls, both in Katmai National Park near King Salmon.
