Successful Spring Bear hunt at Wildman Lake Lodge


Successful Spring Bear hunt at Wildman Lake Lodge

A Successful Spring Bear Hunt was announced this morning as the Satellite phone at Wildman Lake Lodge was ringing before Chef Willy got breakfast on the table.  Butch answered in simply one work" WILDMAN".

 "Hey Boss, we need a raft or something!" crackled the voice of the guide as he was being buffetted by the southeast wind that came up last night.

"John?, Where are you John" asked Master Guide Gary "Butch" King, based at Wildman Lake Lodge on the remote Alaska Peninsula.

"About a mile upstream from our camp, we just shot a bear on the other side of the river"  

"Is he anchored, not going anywhere?"  OH YA, said the guide, he is Brown and Down"

Long-time Wildman Guide John Niland had spent the past 8 days in the bush with Florida hunter Tommy Permenter and today was the day he had been waiting for.  The 10 foot class bear was down but not reachable because of the deep water that separated he and his guide from the monster bear.  Butch and Jesse made Air Drop a short time later, Raft, rope and pump.  Splash another trophy Brown Bear at Wildman Lake Lodge.  Light rain is beginning, some of the first this season, as John and Tommy pump up the raft and cross the river to begin the long process of skinning the trophy bear and floating him down to camp.  When we returned hunter and trophy to the lodge, Fish & Game was on hand to measure and seal the skull, which went 27-06/16" in their quick calculation for the sealing from. Butch estimates that will go a could 16th more when measured for SCI and the hide when fleshed, just over 10 foot.  The hair is incredible, one of the best hides of the season!
