SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: None.
Highlights of Hunt: Taking a B&C record book trophy only four hours into the hunt. It squares 8'8". Also, the thrill of looking for bear in the deep snow on snowmobiles. We would go to a high point and glass. These bears, early out of the den, would be unhuntable without snowmobiles.
Equipment Recommendations: Good waterproof pac boots for the cold, wet snow and gaiters. Quality gloves and a "Mad Bomber" style hat will keep you warm. I would recommend good optics and a minimum of a .300 magnum with heavy bonded bullets for these tough bears.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Tom Gray is a fine christian man and an extremely knowledgable grizzly guide. Also, NW Alaska just before the thaw is a very beautiful place. There are plenty of big bears around, but it is still a hunt. Big bears have no natural enemies, but are still cautious around man.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
I think this is one of the two or three best interior grizzly hunts in North America. Tom and his family are wonderful christian people and you are well acommodated, fed, and guided on this unique experience. Tom also takes fall bear hunters and I think a hunter has one of the best chances in North America to take a really big bear on one of these hunts. There are PLENTY of big bears in this unit, which does not require a draw. He won't shoot a bear under 7'6" unless the client just insists on it. Some of his bears approach Alaska Brown Bears with their extreme size. His two largest measured an astounding 9'3" and 9'5" square and had skulls north of 26". I think, due to the deep snow and potential long days (Tom has covered as much as 120 miles in one day on snow machines), one should be in the best physical shape possible. Mine was not at all a physically gruelling hunt, but it could have been. Take the equipment recommendations seriously. In the Spring it can be very cold this far north.

GAME DESCRIPTION
Major Game Animals Taken: Bear, Grizzly - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: Mine is record book. Skull 26 3/16. Cape 9 foot squared.
Game Sought But Not Taken:
Game Condition Comments: Tom's hunt was mentioned in The Hunting Report I think in the fall of 2007 - I called him but couldn't go until 2009. Two bow hunters before me had both been successful. He only runs a 7 day grizzly hunt but, it appears to me with the numbers I saw this should be ample time. I took a barren ground grizzly (25 years old) that was 26 3/16 inches green and squared about 9 foot. Tom actually has his wife in camp to cook and they are really nice people (you stay in a cabin at the fish camp) - you must be able to ride an ATV. Great hunt I'll probably take my son back - he only takes 4 hunters per year. Because of quick success, data limited but seeing 4-10 bear a day is reasonable.

SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: Beauty of the sub-arctic, plentiful game, pleasant outfitter. Observing many bears in natural habitat. Tom Gray came to my attention in The Hunting Report. With Tom's access, this is an easy hunt for large grizzly.
Equipment Recommendations: Raingear (better than Gore-Tex).
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? Well organized, overnight in Tom's fishing camp, one of few outfitters so confident in taking a bear he only requires 7 day hunt. This tells you how good your chances are. May be on expensive side but Tom has really good size and hunt can be done in seven days.

Tom and his wife B. J. were the most gracious hosts and we stayed in a cabin at his fish camp. How comfortable is that?!
