Rafael Jr. got a Bruiser!

Rafael Jr. got a Bruiser!

Rafael's father had taken a big bear earlier in the hunt and now it was Rafael turn. Father and son had endured several days of extreme Alaska weather, but they started early and stayed out late each day, glassing for bear with their Wildman guide Mark Anderson.  It was the end of another long day, Mark had cleaned up the dinner dishes and the hunters were already in their sleeping bags.  Taking one more look around before turning in himself, the guide spotted a boar and sow on a spring time path of passion that would lead them accoss the valley, and right toward the remote spike camp. 

"Hey, you guys, you ready to go hunting?" the guide called to the client's tent.  Thinking it was a call in jest, the Mexicans opted to stay in the warm sleeping bags, until Mark shouted something more convincing.  He and Rafael Jr. were on their way to meet the oncoming bear, with Dad following a bit behind.  There wasn't much time, as the midnight sun was fading fast as hunter and guide ran most of the way to good spot to ambush the bears. Head low the big bear was coming right up the trail chosen by the veteran Wildman bear guide.  Laying prone in the fading light, Rafael could barely see the dark boar through his rifle scope when he finally pulled the trigger with the bruin at a mere 45 yards .  The 300 grain Swift hit big bear square between the shoulder blades about the same time the rifle scope hit Rafael square between the eyes.  Both hunter and hunted were hit hard, when Mark yelled "You got a Bruiser"  After seeing the picture, we all had to agree, it is definately going to be a bruiser.
