Arctic Grizzly Hunt Report by Jared Griffith

Grizzly hunting is 90% boredom from glassing, and 10% excitement from catching. Unless of course you are me, then it is the other way around.

Russ Meyer, my miracle worker put together the ultimate grizzly hunt for me. The guide I had, Rick took it from there, and helped me fulfill a lifelong dream. Russ and Rick tag teamed this so perfect, I couldn’t think of a better hunt ever!

Grizzly hunting is 90% boredom from glassing, and 10% excitement from catching. Unless of course you are me, then it is the other way around.

…I placed the cross hairs on the vitals of the big Arctic grizzly bear, squeezed the trigger and it went down. From 154 yards, I had fulfilled a dream. My legs were like J-E-L-L-O walking to the bear. It was the most beautiful animal I had ever seen. It was also the most horrible smelling animal I had smelt. Next to the bush it had been sleeping at, was a cache of its food. Which just happening to be a rotting bear, and it was quite ripe. My guide and I took pictures and tried to hold smiles instead of our noses.

After skinning the bear, loading and packing it back to camp it really sunk in.

I said a prayer and thanked him, for my life this opportunity and all he has given us. I want to encourage you all to make a trip to the tundra. It doesn’t matter if it is for hunting or not, the Arctic is truly one of the last few places in the world were clarity comes into focus and you can find yourself.

Man I love bear hunting!

I’m thinking the White Mountain reservation in Arizona bear hunt is sounding good now.
