Seems Dunn took all of the above-mentioned animals with a "bare-bow" - that is, without any sight-pins or other aiming devices attached to his bow. "I have always been a purely instinctive archer," he says, noting he has put animals in the record book taken with longbow, recurve and compound bows, but always without sight-pins or other aiming devices. In addition to being good at instinctive shooting, Dunn says he simply likes the close encounters this kind of shooting requires. He shot his brown bear at only five yards, he says, and his grizzly at eight yards!
Dunn completed his Super Slam this past year when he took a grizzly bear in Northwestern Alaska in May and a brown bear later in September on Baranof Island. The grizzly bear officially measured 26 5/16 P & Y and is expected to be officially declared the new world record at the organization's convention this coming April. It is also expected to rank #29 in the all-time Boone & Crockett records book as well.
Incidentally, he took his grizzly in the Norton Sound area of northwestern Alaska with outfitter Virgil Umphenour of Hunt Alaska. You can see a photograph of this incredible bruin in the Trophy Gallery section of our web site at www.huntingreport.com. We're also preparing the photograph for a new feature on the Home Page of our web site called "Trophy Of The Month." It should be ready by the time you read this.
