Within the past few days I did a couple different posts about the cost of my Alaska Spring Bear Hunt (the thrill hasn’t wore off yet). On the first post I detailed how much it costs to have my bear meat processed and shipped to me. It ended up being just a little over $5 […]
Soldotna Alaska angler, seventeen year old Lauren Olendorff, hooked and landed a 38lb King Salmon while fishing with a trout rod from her raft. I think you could call that a good day on the Kenai River. Lauren’s incredible experience is in stark contrast to my experience using light tackle (10lb test line) and hooking […]
I wish I could answer that question, but I can’t exactly. I can say, unequivocally, that it doesn’t taste anything like “Chicken”! We grilled our first bear steaks last night and I wasn’t sure what to expect. We had some adventurous company over. I’ve had bear before and it was good, but this particular bear of […]
Ok, so you’ve found a guided, fully outfitted hunt for $XXX dollars and now you want to know - What is it really going to cost me? Well, if its an Alaska Spring Black Bear hunt, I can tell you. Even if its not an Alaska Spring Black Bear hunt, a quick review of my […]
One of the questions that no one could answer for me before embarking on my recent Spring Bear hunt in Alaska was “How much does it cost to have a bear processed and shipped to me in Missouri?” I’m not sure why no one had the answer. Apparently, I asked the obvious but wrong people. But, anyway, […]
My Alaska Taxidermist, Mike Nizich of Rug and Rack Taxidermy of Juneau, now has my bear hide and skull! I have not received my meat yet, but Keegan (the outfitter from Ocean Point Alaska Adventures) is working on getting it from Jerry’s Meats in Juneau and getting it shipped to me. I still have a couple […]
If three weeks ago you’d have asked me “What is the best elk call?” or “What is the best deer call?” or even “What is the best moose call?” I probably wouldn’t have had an answer for you. I still don’t have an answer based upon my own experience, but now I could give you […]

Alaska Fishing Gold Prospector Fur Trapper
During our recent trip to Alaska, on the last day of our trip in fact, Caleb and I met a REAL MOUNTAIN man. This guy was awesome. He pans for gold in the summer (which is what he was doing when we met him) and traps and hunts all winter.
Before and after my recent Spring Bear Hunt, I was staying in Juneau, Alaska. During the few days I was there, I learned a couple useful things about how to dress while in Juneau. I assume this would hold true in other parts of SE Alaska, too.
The Basic Wardrobe Necessities
In Junea you can spot a tourist from […]
