Some of the Guides and Rulon here at Broadmouth Canyon Ranch had the fun opportunity to go on an Alaskan Black Bear Hunt.  One of our long time customers, and great friend Rob Skinner, invites us on this amazing adventure. 

All five of us flew to Ketchikan and from the moment we arrived Rob took great care of us.  He invited us into his house, fed us, and made us feel like his own family.  After a wild boat ride over some large ocean swells we arrived to our desired hunting location on Prince of Whales Island.  After our stomachs settled and we started glassing around we immediately saw bears.  We drew straws on our hunting order and Dalton was the lucky winner.  After we saw the first bear he went ashore and shot this giant boar.

  We put out the crab and shrimp pots right away and the feast began shortly after.

 

We camped in a beautiful inlet and after a day of rain Chase was the second to harvest a giant Alaskan coastal black bear. 

We moved locations the next day.  Jadan and I were the next to harvest a few other nice bears.  Jadan’s bear was the blackest bear ever known to bear hunters, and after a short track we found him in the dense Alaskan forest.  We didn’t have to do any searching for my bear, (notice that it’s still on the beach).  I’m not saying I’m an awesome shot, just NO TRACKING NECESSARY.

We did some fishing when we had the chance and never stopped seeing great scenery like these sea lions.  We saw everything from killer whales, bald eagles, Dolphins, to Dungeness crabs and sea stars. 

Last but not least The Big Boss killed a really nice bear. 

Over all it was an amazing adventure.  Thanks a million to Rob Skinner and his wonderful hospitality.  There are very few people that are as giving as him.  This was Alaska black bear hunting at its finest.  One of the best things about guiding at Broadmouth Canyon Ranch is meeting wonderful people from all over the world.

Southern Utah Mule Deer

The story about this buck, that I heard is this.  The boy, Zack, was on his first deer hunt because he is only 12 years old.  Him and his father went out opening morning and were successful in harvesting a small 2×2.  When they retrieved the small buck it was full of infection and un-edible.  They had the fish and game officer in town look it over and he issued them a new tag t harvest another animal.  They went out again and shot the first buck they saw.  It wasn’t a clean kill so they tracked it for a while and ended up finishing it off with a second shot.  When they walked up on it this is what they saw.

I hope he doesn’t spend the rest of his life looking for a better one.  That will be a tough task to complete.

Giant Dall Sheep

I am not the most experienced sheep hunter. I have seen a lot of mounts and this one looks exceptional to me.

A couple of his buddies look pretty nice. But he looks amazing.
