Think about 40 feet. Note ears are up and head is submissive and he was coming in slow. Still keep a 44 magnum with 255 grain Hard cast Buffalo Bore in case. Once I told him close enough direct but calm he stopped and eventually went back to playing with another bear both enjoying time out of the den when they tend to be a little wobbly.Ummmm. That bear was how close?
Glad I have posted with hunting and fishing people as things are noticed I have not thought about. You are exactly right the fish are cut in this way to aid in the drying. It also makes it easy to soak up oil when the dried fish is dipped into it as a part of the meal. Normally seal oil which is vital for energy in the arctic.I notice lateral lines on the hanging salmon. Are lines cut into salmon for drying/smoking purposes or is there another purpose for those cuts?
hope you at least take the opportunity to visit. Marines are always welcome and if you ever come to Anchorage, first coffee at Dark Horse is on me and reindeer hot dogs. I think you just might not use the return ticket.I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to be called US Marine. I wish I had the opportunity to be called Alaskan.
