2016 Spring Season

We had a great 2016 Spring Bear Season!

It can take hours of glassing to find the right one, but when you do, it is worth it!

Here is Marc Hansen with his last day 9’5″ and 26 7/16″ B&C Kodiak Brown Bear!


It isn’t all just glassing for bears though, lots of wildlife to see through the spotting scope.

And some to see without the spotting scope!

Chris Jahnke took this great 9’7″ and 27″ B&C Bear!

Mark Richards with Registered Guide Cabot Pitts, took this beautiful 9’8″ and 28″ B&C Bear!

Mark and Cabot were actually chasing an even bigger bear that they watched kill this 10 year old billy, when they go to the goat kill, the big boar was gone, but they were able to salvage the billy’s horns. On the way back to camp from the stalk, they ran into the bear in the photo above, and decided to “settle” for a 9’8″ boar, with a “booner” head!

We watched this big boar romancing an 8 foot sow all day.  Too bad he had just a little too much rub in the saddle.

Lew Groth with his first day, “Feather-In-The-Cap” bear!  Our biggest bear of the spring, 10’4″ and 28 10/16 B&C!  Lew was guided by Assistant Guide Chris Osbekoff and Master Guide Dick Rohrer.

Lew’s bear was an old one, just check out those teeth!

  And a perfect hide!

Guiding bear hunters isn’t all easy work, here Master Guide Dick Rohrer demonstrates that he still knows his way around a fleshing knife!

A big boar with a sow backed up under the cliff.

After pursuing the boar for 2 hours, we thought our chance was gone, and then the sow he was chasing turned and ran him right back up the mountain within 35 yards of us! Can you spot him in the alder patch?

It was an Epic Chase!

Mark Weaver and with his Guide Sam Rohrer and our spotter Chris, with Marks great bear, 9’7″ and 27 4/16″ B&C!

A couple happy guides headed home, after the days success!

An almost perfect hide on Mark’s bear.

Shaun Harris and his 9’10” and 27 1/16″ bear.
