The Susitna is running! Broke loose about mid day today. Still ice flows, but the season has officially started. Tune up your boats and tackle!!. Did I hear something about a mud fest some time ago ??

GREAT! 7 days of snow, rain and screeming wind. But it was THE BEST hunt I've ever had. Managed to take a 9+ footer with a 27 1/4" skull on the fourth day. I'll post some pics soon.

Pretty good as long as you are willing to wait for, oh say, 10 or 11 months. I dropped his butt off at the taxidermist this morning. If we get together this summer and head through Eagle River I can take you up to the old man's place and you can see the 10footer we took 2yrs ago. His was bigger but mine has a much nicer hide. It's gonna look great when its done.

Congrats on the bear! You worked for it Brett. My Days off have changed to Wed. Thur. so I'll be on the river looking for my "mulligan" black bear. But these bears would just be breakfast for the big ones you and your dad have shot. Hope I get to see'em this summer. I'm hunting blackies mainly for the meat, but if the hide's good, that's a bonus. Doubt I could afford to take it to the taxi tho. :)

Thanks Otter. In my book any bear is a good bear. I figured the $2K for the rug is a small price to pay for a momento from this hunt. It was by far the best hunt I've had to date and it was probably the last time my old man and I will get to do something like this. If I get a chance tonight I'll post some pics of the hunt.

Jessie - did you have any luck with the bears up there? My neighbor and I took one of his friends out last night and managed to get him up on a nice little 5' black bear. Good meat and the hide is in great shape. We saw 6 other bears, one of which was BIG boar. We might go out again tomorrow and see if we can get the big boy. It sure would make some good sausage for summer (my freezer is starting to look pretty empty).

Brett,
Congrats on the black bear! Tasty! No success here yet, but lots of sign. I'm not baiting so no sure thing, but I still feel confident that I'll find my mulligan bear.

I wish you luck Jessie. I'm not much for bait hunting either. I much prefer spot & stalk. We went up the river again last night and managed to take another small boar, this one went probably 5 1/2 feet. He was chasing a sow & 2 cubs up the hill. I wish that I would have had my bow, 'cause he came out of the alders about 40yds from us. It was a good stalk, took us about an hour to get up the hill and into a postion where we could see and shoot from. Lots of good sausage this summer. :thumbsup:
