Guns & Camo & Bears, Oh My.
Anyone who's already heard my version of Jim's bear hunt, knows I always preface it with the following...
Grizzly Bears in Alaska are so prevalent right now that they're endangering the overall existence of caribou & moose. So much so, that several days before the hunt they were told they could buy a tag for a second bear for just pennies compared to what it usually costs.
So if you see these photos and think something like, 'that poor beautiful bear' try to think of the poor beautiful caribou. At least - that's what works for me :)
8 Feet Tall
I do however, thinks it's very fun to have a man that enjoys it!
They flipped a coin and Mark got the first bear they saw... 8 1/2 Feet!
I thought a nice hide rug in the corner of the loft would be nice, but Jim had other plans.
We will soon have a giant 8 foot, roaring bear standing over us.
And Bo and I will both have nightmares.
