Mike Zucker shot a big sucker!

Mike Zucker shot a big sucker!

San Antonio Mike, was just about out of steam.  Was this the third or forth stalk he and Rob had made this week on big Alaska Brown Bears, only to be eluded by thick brush or have the sun fade to darkness.  It was the last day of the spring season, as he and they had reached the mid point of the knive edge mountain ridge, just below snowline.  The guide whispered, "he should be just ahead, we are getting close."  Mike had to stop to catch his wind.  Averting his eyes from the familuar view of the guide's back, he sees bear 150 yards to his leftmat the toe of the steep slope.  Different color his is thinking, when the original quarry busts out of its hiding place a mere 35 yards ahead of Rob and heads up the ridge, into the thick alders before Mike could even prepare for a shot. 

Turning their attention to the other bear, they crossed the ridge and could see that it was not the mate to the first bear, but a large boar, making its way around the bowl created by their ridge and the hillside below.  Winded from the climb and the excitement of being in such close proximity of two big bears, Mike steadied his .375 H&H for the double lung shot that Butch described in the pre-hunt briefing.  The bear, now at a steep downhill angle, swung its big hear for one last look back, as Mike touched off the round.  The .300 grain Swift A Frame hit the bear square between the eyes which quickly ended the hunt in a hurry. A lucky shot?, maybe, but it was finally Mike Zucker's lucky day.  San Antonio Mike's last bear was indeed a big sucker, squaring 9'-2" .
