Banking the Super Cub hard to the left, my guide and outfitter, Jonah, began the circle that would hopefully confirm what our eyes had spotted. With my face pressed to the glass, I peered as hard as I could trying to spy what my mind kept telling me I had witnessed. Sure enough, standing in the middle of the river was the coastal brown bear I had made the long trek from Oklahoma to find. From the relative comfort of the Super Cub, the bear looked huge, although in reality I’m not sure if he was big or not. The good news was that the bear was on the river fishing less than a mile and a half from camp. Peering out the window with renewed resolve, we continued on to camp, which happened to be just around the bend in the river.

Landing on the sandbar and exiting the plane, we soon set to the task of unloading and checking gear. With Alaska law being what it is, it would be the next day before any hunting began, so we took our time and enjoyed the experience. Truth be told, I was wore out. By no stretch of the imagination is it easy to make it from Oklahoma to Alaska. The full day of travel had me frazzled, and I soon found myself nodding off during conversation. After I retired to the tent, which was surrounded by an electric fence I might add, sleep came easy. But before I knew it, I was being rousted out of the comfort of the sleeping bed. It seems many hours had passed in a couple of minutes, and this hunt was officially ready to begin. After a quick breakfast, we slipped into waders and loaded the raft.
