Kodiak, Alaska--that wondrous mystical island home to the largest brown bears in the world--became my home for an early spring bow hunt in 2012. My #1 bucket list hunt began as a dream that eventually evolved into a reality. For years I read about other hunters, looking at their pictures in magazines as they smiled behind their big bears. I wished it could be me. But I wasn’t sure if I would really be able to make it happen. But, as you can see, that’s me in the picture. Me! I did it! The brown bear in the picture squared 9’6,” scored a 28 5/8” (green) skull, and has superb dark fur that will make a magnificent standing mount. Good thing I have a vaulted ceiling in my man room.Read more...
Thanks for the great pack. I am able to sit longer in the stand, later in the year, in order to hunt the rut. I harvested this buck, which weighed nearly 200 lbs, and a 185 lb 3 yr old doe twenty minutes apart Nov. 15th, 2003. My pack goes with me every step of the way. I couldn't get anything more into it, and it weighs twenty pounds, but, once I have it on, I do not notice the weight. I have had seven spinal fusions on my back, and I can take what I need without worrying about it because of the way you made your pack to fit snugly to the body. I think it is great. By far the best pack I have ever had.
God Bless and Thanks.
