Before we book our clients to hunt with a specific outfitter we like to hunt with them first. Jim called me with a last second hunt for August 10, 2001. He said the bear were still on the streams and eating salmon and it should be slam dunk hunt. I brought three clients with me on a weeks notice and headed north. On arrival I was informed that a good number of the bear had not been seen on the river that day and they may be headed for the berries. That was the case. Both of my clients in the berries shot beautiful grizzly bear. My other client and I hunted near the river a few days and then headed to the berries. We had our chances on a stalk the last day but did not get the bear. In all fairness to the outfitter - we all could only stay four days and had my other client and I had the regular ten day hunt booked we would have shot bears with out a doubt. We have been invited to come back next year and get that bear and we are coming for sure. He has the highest bear numbers I have ever even heard about, so bad they may close his moose season due to calf depredation. Steve's Outdoor Adventures www.steveshunts.com
