2016 Spring was optimum for the pursuit of Big Brown Bear in Alaska. Brad Modlin was on a quest for a 10+ Brown Bear with a Boone and Crocket skull. The Boar he was after was a dominant bear in the valley he hunted. Brad and his guide Johnny Helton witnessed the Boar on mountain top in pursuit of a strikingly large Sow with three 1 1/2 yr old cubs. The Sow left her cubs for the freedom of the breeding season. The cubs were fairing well as seen in the next valley, they went from suckling to foraging in a matter of days. Its a harsh reality on the Alaska Peninsula versus the USA. They found the Big Alaskan Brown Bear in Alaska from a ridge in the next drainage with another sow and got a shot on him on a shady creek. His scars prove he is a Bruin that fights for what he wants. I am proud of these two hunters for striking out away from camp taking the clothes on their back and finding adventure. Brad Modlins bear measured 10´2″ squared and had 28 1/4″ Boone and Crockett skull.
