Flew out last week for the afternoon to scout out a new location and to get a little fishing in. Unfortunately we missed the big push of salmon by about a week which in turn meant we missed the 70+ bears that were counted and only saw about a half dozen. It was still a great day to get out and fly around though!

C&C always encouraged.

Mike

Good looking set of bruising bruins Mike. Too bad you missed the big action time frame.

Great set of pics Mike... I really like the view in #1, and 2-4 are wonderful shots of the bears.
Well done, and that's a nice Rainbow.

Lovely set, Mike. Looks like you came out a winner on both accounts.

Is that bear mace you're carrying on your hip? Hope you never have to use it.

Hi Ed,

It is bear mace and I did not have to use it thankfully. The bears are very eager to eat the salmon and not very interested in humans...but, better safe then sorry especially when walking through thick brush and if I was to surprise one accidentally.

Just curious, Mike. Ever met someone that did use it? I guess if you met them, it worked.

Ed,

Actually I know a couple people that have used the bear mace. I have a friend that was a summer fishing guide a couple years back. Him and another guide were scouting out new fishing locations. They came up on a bear which surprised both of them (the people and the bear). The bear charged and they felt the threat and need to spray the bear. He said the bear mace worked incredibly well and the bear stopped in his tracks and ran the opposite direction.
