Bear Chronicles 2015: Old bruin knows dinner bell, good manners
November 2005 was notable for early, heavy snow and generally lousy weather on the southeast end of Kodiak Island. Snow drifts were over knee deep in places and drifts on the lee side of the prevailing northwest winds were too deep to gauge. We had a group of four veterinarians from Arizona, New Mexico and California out for a week of deer hunting. These
