10,000 dollar trophy?
Posted by Father of 2 on Apr 22 2006
   This is a story from my shop bosses hunt for a Kodiak Brownie. He spent three weeks in Kodiak with little info as he was a newbie up here. He just was lucky on the draw his first year. He did not gather information or think to take the time to talk to residents of an area. Short story he had a great time but all he got was a shed of a great Kodiak deer. He has the 10,000 dollar horn mounted with all of his other trophies.  He has a great many tales to tell from the hunt, most are great. He did not get a bear due to his ignorance, yet the trip was one he will remember for a lifetime.

    He hunts Africa via truck bed and 4 star lodge and finds this more to his chosing, yet he talks about his bear hunt more than his African hunts.

   Glad to see a lady on here as well mrs. MAE!!!!

     As for unwelcoming towards out of state hunters, you need to look beyond yourselves and understand Alaska as well. I hunt with out of state hunters, yet they are in it for the hunt and trip.

      Our lands are not yet labeled off limits, yet they soon might be. As for my Grandma, she fed her family and entered the bison out of interest. Nagengast is the name. She shot the biggest animal to feed her family, she just wondered what she shot afterward and thought it would be neat to enter it in the books. Food was first and foremost to her.
