My son Taylor and I did a first this year-shootin bear, with a canon of course. We initially planned our Alaska journey to photograph Moose in rut, fall colors, and anything else that got in our way. Taylor had his heart set on finding some bear. I was a little reluctant- not wanting to get eaten getting a killer photo. We did some research and found that a bear excursion was not as forboding as i imagined. It did’nt help that I had just watched “The Edge” with Anthony Hopkins.We decided on Silver Salmon Creek Lodge at Lake Clark. WOW! What an awesome experience. I’m sure this is the first of many future “bear trips”. They pretty much keet to their salmon fishing while we did our thing. We had a great guide-Jenny. She kept us out of trouble and made sure the bears kept their distance. We spent a day and a halh shooting and came away with 6000 photos. Unbelievable!
