Hunting in Alaska: Episode 6 - Close Encounters of the Grizzly Kind
February 8, 2018
Welcome to the Hunting in Alaska Episode 6/13 on Realtree Global. We join Ian Harford and Steve Wild behind-the-scenes on their epic Alaska hunting adventure.
After two more days of bad weather, the fog and rain has now lifted, Ian and Steve head back into into the wild. However, the game that they saw the day before has now moved on. So, before they head out the team need to assess the area and decide on a plan.
The team choose to go further into the surrounding area and explore some new ground. Continuing on a trail that they formed in episode three, the route is still tough as they search for berry patches that indicate signs of brown bear activity.
They spot two bears in the distance and decide on the best plan of action. The terrain that the team must overcome to gain a better position is very challenging.
Amazingly at the top of ridge they spot the bear and notice it has covered a lot of ground and is heading in the teams direction.
They continue until reaching a new location, still on the trail of the brown bear. After Steve sets up his rifle, he takes up the role of lookout as Ian prepares his rifle in case a back up shot is needed.
Unfortunately, the bear spots the team and heads off back into the mountains for safety.
However, the excitement isn’t over yet. Later that night there is an unexpected visitor right next to camp. Is this the moment they have been waiting for?
