Kenai Peninsula

Hunting Black Bears

Hunting Black Bears

At this time of the year when the days are getting longer and the sun is brightly shining melting the winter snow Iā€™m continuously thinking of chasing black bears.  In my early years in Alaska two or three of my Air Force buddies and I would head down the Seward Highway glassing the slopes for black bears.  I want to thank all of the following guys for the many wonderful memories that I have hunting black bears on the beautiful Kenai Peninsula: Gary Wadkins, Chuck Berry, Dennis Bush, Doug Simmons, Bill Burgess, Walter Burkett, Russ Langston, Skip Phillips, Dan King, Earl Boucher, Marv Buckley, Dave Fannin, Mike Herbert, Lyle Thompson, Dave Brotherton, Bobby Butler, Eddie Lanoue, Marty Turnbow and Jared Juliussen.  This is quite a gang and I have about the same number that hunted black bears with me in the Prince William Sound area.  But this story is about the bears on the Kenai Peninsula.  Follow along as we go black bear hunting.
