Shoot out in the brush!


Shoot out in the brush!

"It looked like a good shot" said veteran Wildman bear guide Mark Anderson, as the 9'-2" bruin disappeared into the brush.  It was Tom Zulim's first hunting day after arriving last evening iat the comfortable spike camp that Wildman Lake Lodge had set up especially for this fall bear hunt on the Alaska Peninsula.  It was in an exclusive guiding area of Master Guide Gary "Butch" King where , glassing from his vantage point near the camp, Mark had been seeing between ten and twenty brown bear each day, as well as several of moose and an even a few wolves during the week he had been there.

After giving the bear a good 30 minutes to hopefully lay down and bleed out, Mark and Tom carefully made their way along the ample blood trail.  The brush was thick alder, which towered high over their heads and limited forward or side visibility to mere yards.  Eyes and Ears is all you have going for you in this situation, and ears it was, as they heard the wounded brownie leave its bed and crash even deeper into the brush ahead of them.  "Damn" Mark uttered under his breath, look back to see that Tom was still close to him.

As the sound faded, the hunter and guide pressed on, only to hear the bear circling in the brush in attempt to stay within the confines of the alder patch.  After thirty minutes of playing cat and mouse in the alders, Mark knew this wasn't working, the bear just kept manuvering to avoid them in the brush.  He needed to post the hunter in one spot and move around the bear alone in hopes it would expose itself to Tom, while trying to avoid Mark as he moved through the brush.  Well the risky ploy worked and Tom got the killing shot from about 10 yards in heavy brush.  An exciting end to a one day hunt at Wildman Lake Lodge.
