Alaska.......here I come! Heading up north next month to pursue these big beasts! I am stoked! Can't decide whether to use a rifle or a bow; therefore, I may take both.

Booked the hunt with Bill Stevenson's Alaska Outfitters. From what I have seen of Rebecca and bearguide's bears......it should be a great hunt!

Right on David, PM me your tentative dates you'll be going/coming through Anchorage and I'll buy ya a brew or a coffee. :D You'll have a blast no doubt. I would love to do a AK Pen brown bear hunt some year.

Thanks everyone.....I am waaaay excited!

Bill, I am taking both weapons, but I would sure love to get one with a bow.

Luke, sent you a PM.

Lee, yes, I plan to be there the last ten days of the season. Everyone I talk to says the later the better because the bigger bears are the last ones to come out of hibernation.

Gonna start rigging up the new Mathews Helium this weekend :)

Gonna blow the dust off the .300 Weatherby as well. Been a while since I have messed with a rifle.

David, the Heli-m is a little gem. Was able to set mine up exactly as the Z7, pulled the sight and was spot on for the first arrow! Smoked a turkey with mine this week. Good luck and have fun!

Rick, I will be sure to read the 4-phase glassing chapter a few times before going. hehe. I will also tell Bill to put me with his slowest guide:)

Les, I am setting mine up this weekend. Can't wait to sling a few my self.
