This guy has got to be the luckiest hunter alive!
Billy McWilliam was just heading out to start his journey hundreds of miles away from Kugluktuk to try and catch his first polar bear, but Mother Nature had other plans in mind!
He was five minutes away from our house and he runs into this beautiful creature, thinking to himself ‘Oh wow that’s a big white dog … oh no, maybe a wolf?’ He said that he couldn’t believe his eyes.
After he got the bear he came back home to wake me up saying he got his first polar bear, I laughed thinking ‘Wow, in all of the five minutes that you were away, you got yourself a bear.’ I thought he was joking – he wasn’t.
This photo was taken just outside of Kugluktuk where residents spend days sliding with their children.
Congratulations Billy! On your first polar bear and for doing your part to help keep the community safe, who knows where that bear would’ve made its way to if you hadn’t seen it first.
