David Rhae of Missoula, Montana was the lucky winner of the Sportsman’s News hunting contest that went the full year of 2011 and the first part of 2012. One of our endorsed outfitters “Itcha Mountain Outfitters” provided us a world class trophy black bear hunt to give away and the time to get it on is finally here.
We arrived in British Columbia late on Saturday night and we saw 7 bears on the way to the lodge. Being here a day early allowed us to check out the area and get some pictures. A late evening trip of driving around revealed us 7 more bears and one of the largest black bears that I have ever seen. He was in excess of 7.5 feet. I’m sure we will be back in the area today once our hunt gets launched. Dave is carrying a bow and arrow for the majority of the hunt, but has a rifle as well. Knowing that you have the ability to harvest 2 bears if the desire arises makes for an exciting week.
