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.

“Here is two-year-old Autut Illnik trying to carry her dad’s sole catch of the evening. There were plenty of geese flying, however little Autut, being the playful tyke she is, wasn’t keen on staying still for too long and diverted all the geese. Time to get some camo gear for next season because she sure isn’t missing out on the hunt. Maybe we can find a camo soother too.” Read More
