Default Doc's grizzly sneak peak!



Stopped in Ingram to drop of the carnage and pick up meat. They are starting to lay out my grizzly to mount. Woodbury planning on taking him to Dallas sci and vegas. Will have salmon, trout and a grayling when done!

Not really! For 4 years running I bill out more, do more surgery and deliveries and take home less money. That's the American dream, right? Work harder and make less?

I don't score many things, almost none. So I don't have a score criteria. It's all about what the hunt means. Now the super Alan species all get a spot!

Doc, if he makes it to Dallas SCI, be sure and let me know as I should be there for a 4 days of the show helping my PH from Africa. Also, if you, Lil Doc and Jr. make it, be sure and give me a shout. I would like to meet if possible. If you do think you will make it, I will Pm you my number so we can get together sometime.

Just for clarity, that was just the head pinned on the form and the claws arranged on the fish. Finished bear will be laying with another sockeye nearby. 2 big rainbow trout and a grayling in water below him. Will recreate my trip!

He was walking down a beach when spotted. Was eating crabs and fish washing up on the coast. I am doing mount with sockeye salmon because I caught a couple while there and then went and fished for trout on the kenai and Russian river. Caught one 25 incher and one 28 incher. Both going in there. Also did a fly out trip for grayling. Caught a big one. He is going to be in there.
