On May 9th I left Tennessee and headed to Sitka, Alaska to brown bear hunt with guide, Dale Adams, from Adams Alaskan Safaris. What an awesome experience to say the least.
From eating fresh caught crabs and shrimp nearly every day to viewing massive whales, beautiful eagles, sea lions and otters and being surrounded by some of the earth’s most incredible geography, it was the trip of a lifetime.
As if all awesome views and tasty food were not enough to take in, a really heart-pounding event occurred on day two of the adventure. That’s when we spotted a brown bear that measured over nine feet tall and weighed close to a thousand pounds. The result of the encounter is pictured below.
My thanks to the “team” aboard the boat, “Surveyor,” for their help with the monstrous bear. Left to right are, Jason Rumsey, Wayne Marcho, the old guy, Lindsey Williams, Dale Adams, and Alex Carter. (Not pictured is Dale’s wife, Lori, who went along and did the cooking. Every meal was a gastronomical jubilee!! I think I weigh an extra ten pounds.)
