My son is stationed in Kodiak, AK again, and he got his first Kodiak Brown Bear. He's a good one. I'm going up there for Thanksgiving, and I'll get to cross bear meat off of my list of things I've tried.

He'll get the official size tomorrow, but he has measured him at 9'. He used a .300 WSM. One shot put him down, but he put two extra insurance shots in him.

Awesome bear! As a service member, was he exempt from the outfitter requirement or did he have to get one too?
