WINNER:
Jamie Kalluk
Resolute Bay
The day started off slow, no bears, few tracks, travelled more than half the day, finally spotted a bear in the distance, checked out the bear only to see it was a 6 1/2 foot bear. Set up camp disappointed no bear today I guess was in my mind. Decided to look through the binoculars a last time before going off to sleep to find a boar and a sow. In the event of the hunt got this great picture.
