I think spear gun would be my weapon of choice. On second thaught I have a .458 Lott that needs a good workout.

Leathernock,

No thanks, my nuts are still attached to my brain at this point. I have no desire to wade through head high alders with a stick bow searching for brown bears while they are searching for me as well. I'd much rather hunt elephant and cape buff with my stickbow, looking for an overweight and slow hunting partner (preferably one that runs slower than me) interested??

id be up for it...if there was one! might need a pretty full quiver for that lot though.

pff .458 lott give me a 600 nitro express double that should slow it down some, and if not at least the recoil would knock me silly and i would'nt feel the mauling

amazing pic thanks for sharing

Dave we need to find a big landowner in Mozambique that would let us chase some buff with the stick bow

Andy,

I have just the guy in Zim, he's waiting for us, ready when we are. Mozambique's not for trad guys from what all my sources say. Was talking to a good buddy (PH) in Zim today, he does most of his hunting in Zim but also hunting Botswana and Tanzania alot. Says concessions still in good shape for most part. Fuel and supplies still problem in some regions.

That would be awesome to see. My dream hunt is to hunt the big coastal bears with a stickbow...well, that's one of my dream hunts.

I saw a situation like on at a fish hatchery on afognak, there were 27 bears on one beach, unfortunately situations like that are not great for me cause fish bears taste really really bad

Bears on Kodiak have been thick this year. Old timers say bear encounters are way up this year. I heard that there has been 27 bears killed on the road system this year. All time high. I personally had several bears within 15 yards from me while I was fishing. One feller shot a bear in the head from 5 feet away, it was trying to crawl through his doggy door. Kodiak bears certainly demand respect, but during the salmon run they really care less about humans.

is the 27 from the registration hunt or DOL&P?

I do believe they were registration hunts. That info. was second hand. I would have to believe the info based on the amount of bears I saw. I know of one bear that was hit by a car just out side of town. If a guy just wanted a bear it wouldn't have been too hard to shoot one.
