It is hard to believe how fast time is flying! Winter is over and spring is quickly disappearing as the hot summer sun starts to scorch the earth for another long hot summer. This year Safaris West had another incredible record setting bear season with over 20 bears taken in. Although not the most we have ever taken in as a taxidermy studio it was by far the largest bears we have ever taken in. Across an 18 Bear average the weight was 497lbs with the largest being taken by a 16 year old from Wilmington, NC that weighed in at 784lbs! These are truly giant bears and I myself was fortunate, thanks to a dear friend and customer Phil Barker, to have a chance at shooting a wonderful 550 Bruiser that was in full charge at just under 5 feet away! It was definitely the most exciting hunt of my life thus far.
