free chase bear hunt in canada this past May . Chocolate brown off color black bear , third "chocolate" they had seen in twenty years .We saw grizzly bear UP CLOSE , mule deer , elk , moose , mountain lion , coyote , and white tail . several sows with two and three cubs . incredible experience , thank you andre' and kelly , holly too . willow creek outfitters if you want a true free chase hunt , where the
bears can hit back . ram hunts are their specialty . Slid down the mountainside where we were glassing , then hunched over and jogged across a field for 400 yards , then belly crawled 150 yards to a little high spot . 35 whelen , one shot at 185 yards . dropped like a sack of potatoes. his nose shows the fights for territory.

That's awesome. I am an avid hunter my own self. Just seeing the wilderness had to be a great experience, and great for the soul. Real nice bear.
