Hurrah for Hartman, another Happy Hunter!


Hurrah for Hartman, another Happy Hunter!

On the fifth hunting day of his ten day spring bear hunt, Greg Hartman connected with this fine trophy spring brown bear near Wildman Lake Lodge on the Alaska Peninsula.  The Alberta hunter and Wildman guide Billy Billy Bullet were high in an all snow mountain valley where Alaska Master Guide, Gary “Butch” King has enjoyed great success on spring bear over the years.  Access was by ski plane only and walking was strictly on snowshoes.  Days of glassing had revealed several brown bear, some small, some medium and a couple very large bear which, after several hours of hot pursuit on cold feet strapped to cumbersome snowshoes, eventually eluded the determined hunter and guide.

Late yesterday evening, things worked out for Greg.  The bear was spotted high up in a draw which joined their long valley.  Making their way up the steep slope on snow shoes, the guide and Greg were finally within good shooting range.  The 10 ft. class bear took five rounds, before  finally succumbing  to hard hitting 200 grain Swift A Frame bullets  from the Greg’s .338 Winchester Magnum.
