    I am impressed with the pic of the bear chasing the hound, Know that I couldn't have taken such a great shot while running the other way with the camera pointed back over my shoulder.

    Thanks for sharing...Should give you my address in case there is more smoked salmon then your family can eat...lol

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    beagle: Great photos, I love that one of the brown bear chasing your hound. Keep the photos coming I really enjoy seeing Alaska photos, I lived there 16 years and really miss it.

    Here's the results of our December Moose Hunt!
    My bull was by what Rainbow River Lodge calls the Presidential Stretch.

    My wife took hers on what Copper River Lodge calls The Lower Straightaway.

    Thanks for the pics, reminiscing of finer days gone by - brings a tear to my eye!
    I left after we finished building the pipeline road. 2nd biggest mistake of my life.

    Mike Rainbow River Lodge is just up the crik from us,we caretake it and Copper River Lodge as well. With the big salmon runs lately the fishing has been better than I can ever remember. My wife and I are avid hunters and give the local brown bears a run for the $$.
    We are allowed a bear a year apiece within 2.5 miles from the mouth of the Copper!
