We took a ton of great bears in interior Alaska this spring, including two that will make the Pope and Young record book. See the highlights of my season here.

For quite a few years now, spring black bear hunting in interior Alaska has been a Freel family affair. This season proved to be one of the best yet, as the woods seemed to be loaded with bears. Right off the bat, my dad and I both took Pope & Young record book black bears, both with traditional bows. I was also able to help my younger sister and my cousin’s son take their first black bears.
