Wildman Lodge Spring Hunt 2018 10 yr. old Tommy Niles takes 10’-3” Bear Posted on: May 25, 2018


  Ten year old hunter, Tommy Niles, took this huge 10 foot plus Alaska Brown Bear at Wildman Lodge with Master Guide/Outfitter Gary "Butch" King, on the remote Alaska Peninsula.  Tommy was accompanied by his Father Tim and veteran Wildman Lodge guide Rob Bostater when they spotted the bear across the river and high up the mountain above the jungle of tangled alders.  After a four hour successful stalk on this very old trophy bruin, Rob had the young hunter within 80 yards of the huge Brownie.  Tommy made a great first shot and followed it up with two more 300 grain SWIFT A-Fame bullets in less than 10 seconds.  The bear tumbled down the steep slope and hung up in the alders below.  The huge paw tells the story, as big as the boys chest.  Stay Tuned, the bear is in the fleshing tent and final measurement and Safari Club International Score will be published soon.  Wildman

Alaska bear hunting at Wildman Lake Lodge Gary Butch King Master Guide

  Texas hunter, Bruce Evans requested the Cabin hunt from Wildman Lake Lodge after a fellow Texan harvest the season's largest bear, 10'-8'', last fall on the same hunt.  This hunt is conducted by boat, from Wildman Lodge.  The cabin is actually one of the better glassing points on the lower river and with the boats you access to two more connected drainages, giving the Guide, boat driver and hunter a lot of country they can hunt.  The call came in at 9:30 PM on the 3rd day of the hunt... Brown & Down

While stalking a large boar with big sow, Bruce was right behind Wildman Assistant Guide Rich, on a late evening stalk to get closer to the two bears.  All of a sudden from a hole in the tall amber grass erupted a big amber colored Brown Bear, less than 10 yards in front of the duo.  Rich yelled, Good Bear!  Bruce cut loose with his .375 and after a number of shots were fired he had the beautiful yellow boar on the ground.    Bruce Evens brown bear squared 9'-6" with a SCI Book Skull 25-08/15.  Congratulations!  Sometimes you pick the bear, and sometimes the bear picks you!  That's bear hunting, expect the unexpected.

Ten Foot Eight Brown Bear - Wildman Lake Lodge Spring 2018 Posted on: May 24, 2018


  The Ten foot Eight inch Brown Bear taken by David D'Onofrio is out of the skinning shed and up for all to see.  The bear was shot on a steep, snowy mountain side at 40 yards, and proceeded to tumble townard the hunter and guide, as Dave unloaded his .375 H&H Magnum.  After getting two shots off, Assistant Guide, Phil Perry pulled Dave out of the way as the tumbling/sliding bear took out his pack and Dave's shooting sticks, coming to rest in a perfect picture pose in the heavy alders below.  Good thing, because Phil could barely move the bear to remove the skin and head, having to remove the quarters of the enormous bear before even rolling it over.
