Tony Takes a Trophy


Tony Takes a Trophy

Tony McCorvey of Houston, Texas is no stranger to Wildman Lake Lodge.  On his first Brown Bear hunt at Wildman Lake Lodge with Master Guide Butch King, Tony took an medium size 8-1/2 foot bear.  He was hooked and after seeing some of the Ten Foot monsters that some of the other clients took that year, he raised his sights for the Ten Foot Club.  Hunting for ONLY a monster size bear that he know lived in the Wildman hunting concession on the Alaska Peninsula, Tony hunted again in 2008 and 2010, passing on anything that did not make Wildman's SIZE LARGE catagory.  Well, 2016 was Tony's lucky year, when on the 3rd day of the hunt, he and his guide Rob spotted a big bear about 5 miles down the valley.  They decided to take a closer look.  Several hours later, they were closing the distance on what they had determined to be a LARGE bear, when another LARGER bear appeared at the edge of a snow field another 200 yards further up the steep mountain side.  Nothing like switching targets at the last minute.  Finally at 7 pm, Tony was in position to make a 230 yard shot with his .416 Magnum.  Tony followed up with two more rounds as the big bear slid down the snow field toward them, before coming to rest just above the hunter and guide.  To Quote my favorate Robert Service Poem... "Pitched on he's head and pumped full of lead, laid Dangerous Dan McGrew....... And thus was he, the dead quarry, 10'-2" brown bear for McCorvey.
