Kodiac success
Posted by ultra mag on Apr 29 2006
I flew into Halibut Bay on the 11th and flew out on the 18th with my 6-7 yr. old boar.  It had a 24 1/8 inch skull with a perfect hide.  We only seen 3 bears while hunting, one bomber boar that we coulnt get to because of the tide.  One other smaller bear that we first spotted from camp while getting water, then again 1/2 mile from camp while glassing we video taped this bear chasing down a herd of reindeer and then killing and eating the only new calf in the herd.  The third bear of course is the one I shot, after spotting and watching this bear for three straight days from a distance of two miles I decided he was the one.  The second day that we watched this bear he had killed a deer and was emerging from a thick patch of willows headed straight up the steep south facing mountain behind him.  The next morning we crossed the inlet at low tide and searched until I spotted him up near the jagged rocks laying on his kill.  After watching him catch 2 hours of sunlight we circled the mountain and climed to the top then began the stalk down.  At 60yrds we woke the boar by rolling a basketball size boulder down the mountain in his direction.  Two perfect shots from the 375 and it was time to take pictues.  It was truly the hunt of a lifetime!  I also harvested a bull reindeer right from my tent with the bow.  We also seen lots of deer,reindeer,fox, and whales porpoising out in the bay.  As for the weather, it was by far the most extreme I have ever encounter.  Temps between 15-32 with wind gusts exceeding 60mph.  The wind chill made glassing into the wind very difficult.  It snowed 4-5 inches one evening in an hour.  I was impressed with the newly bought arctic oven.  Thanks to all that helped!  
Anyone interested in pictures shoot me an email.    All the best,
