Ten Foot Alaska Brown Bear on Opening Day


Ten Foot Alaska Brown Bear on Opening Day

Ten Foot Alaska Brown Bear are every hunter's dream.  On opening day, while hunting at Wildman Lake Lodge, Terry Rathert of Houston, TX got his huge trophy brown bear in his sights.  The bear was laying on a moose kill, which he was very proud of.  As the hunter and Wildman guide Jesse Gallagher approached the sleeping bear, they heard the "Awa Awa Awa" of a rutting bull moose, also approaching the sleeping bear.  Setting up his shooting sticks at a mere 150 yards, Terry waited for the over aggressive moose to awake the monster brown bear.  When the bear stood up, Terry opened the ball with his .375 H&H Magnum.  The first shot took off the top of the bear's coffee can size heart as the bear spun in whirl of furry.  His second shot was absorbed by the hulk of the bear which was still standing on the moose kill.  Looking for good shot placement, Terry squeezed off the third factory round, which only made a loud click in the chamber of is Dakota.  Ejecting the bad cartridge, the fourth Swift A Frame took the bear through the near shoulder and lodged under the neck skin on the far side, to be later recovered as a perfect mushroom.  Terry's the latest member of Gary "Butch" King's TEN FOOT CLUB with this 10'-2" Trophy Alaska Brown Bear.
