Subject: RE: BS: Bear Encounters Part Two
T. Shambles, just now I read in the paper (Dallas Morning News)that: "Never mind the hungry bear that chased Woods and Mark O'Meara across an Alaska river two months ago as they fished for salmon."

Do you have any idea of where that was? I suspect it was on the Kenai Peninsula, home of the giant Chinooks. (The biggest Chinook (king) salmon caught there measured something like 46 inches around the middle and weighed 96 pounds, I think. Down here a 50 pounder is a big one.
