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.
