I can do Nightforce with a Leupold MK6 on the HK.

Kyle and Ryan break it down a bit in this NSSF video.

You can fast forward to the 10:30 or so if you don't want to here about Leupold.

Exactly right.


I've been told Tejas is crammed with these canned operations, and I have no doubt that's true. I also have no doubt the type of people who partake are just as described.

Some countries require a fence to make a hunt legal and those fenced areas can be bigger than a lot of SE Alaska islands that plenty of people hunt. Even if they're not that big, pressure can make the critters in them stupidly shy, just like public land whitetails that live within the same few hundres acres, hiding instead of running. I'll get off my soapbox nowgrin.

Sometimes in some countries it just makes it a legal hunt, and hunting pressure has a HUGE impact.


Ted,
Not all guided moose hunts are easy and successful? Speak the truth, here.

What’s the real world expectation on getting crosshairs on a shootable bull? Shootable, meaning big freezer loaded with meat.

😎


Only time I’ve ever been skunked beave, a good outfitter will make it right as mine is, offering me a return trip for a song, which is rare in itself. Ever open the border up I’ll be goin to BC for a return trip and Alberta. Hopefully I’ll be buying a new freezer!! 😂😂


I remember you telling me that. Good outfitters are worth twice the price of shady ones, just for the piece of mind. My Yukon griz hunt is being rolled to next year due to COVID and I thank the lord daily for booking with who I did, instead of wondering if I'd be crammed in the same camp with next year's hunters, or I'd have to pay next year's prices, etc. There's none of that.

I am in the same boat.

Inland Grizzlies just seem neater and Toklat coloring is added bonus.

Just make sure Leupold is steering the bullets. grin

Widrig Outfitters out of Whitehorse.

I'll kill a coastal brownie some day, but while we're young enough going after the mountain and interior bears just seems "better".

Great pics of the bears! My sentiments exactly in the Mountain Grizzly vs the the bigger bears. Looking forward to seeing those pictures.

Technically, mine is a brown bear, shot 200 miles north of Dillingham, a bit short of the cutoff line between brown bear and grizzly.

Of course, 200 mile for a bear is just a little stroll.

He squared 9-3 with a 26" something skull, so no mistaking him for a mountain grizz. whistle

How many times have you heard to not take a wildcat on a far away hunt? Shot him with a 358 STA & 250 PT's.

And topped with a Leupold.....the horror.......

The STA was a switch barrel gun I put together. Started with a first Gen Sendero in 7 STW, then added the STA barrel with the intent on going on a bear hunt at some time, and a third in a 375 H&H Ackley.

All are long gone now, with the last "big" gun in the house being a 338-06 Ackley, put together with the idea of doing an inland grizz hunt some day.

Sadly, I doubt that's going to happen, so have been contemplating on moving it too.

Probably have to take off the Leupold to move it though.....ha..ha.....

Let's just say the hunt was on the Dillinger River. The outfitter is no longer in business.

I had a great time but then I deal with chaos pretty well and basically got to hunt how I wanted as long as I took a guide with me.

The camp was pretty much a black bear bait site and 2 of the 3 blackies taken were by guys in their underwear killing bears in camp. grin
