  4. 4. From The President RICHARD L. GOTSHALL, PRESIDENT SFCSCIHello everyone,Happy New Year. I know there are a lot of people happy to see 2010 gone. A new yearis upon us and a new year of hunting. I realize that there are still hunts going on rightnow but I don’t have any planned unfortunately. My wife and I did go on a great moosehunt in the Yukon with both of us taking big moose. An article will follow soon.As for the club, all has been quiet lately. We have been slowly and diligently workingon our 2011 fundraiser. It’s going to be as great as ever. We still need your helpthough. Any silent auction donations you can donate are always appreciated. Asalways if you contact me I will have the items picked up so there is no hassle to you.The National Convention in Reno is fast approaching, January 26th through the 29th.Quite a few of us are going again this year. If you haven’t been you are really missingout. It is the ultimate sportsman’s paradise.I’m sure a lot of you paid close attention to the political races that went on inNovember. We gained some ground here in South Florida in the hunting conservationarena. This year, when I travel to Washington DC to speak to our congressmanregarding hunting and conservation I will be met by a friendly face in Allen West. Weall were strong supporters of his during his campaign. I am confident he will standbehind SCI in our efforts to protect hunting. It will be fun trudging thru DC for achange.Thank you,Richard GotshallPresident954-410-5622Rich@Paulbangeroofing.com 3

  14. 14. The Roller Coaster Hunt of a LifetimeBy Keith AlmeidaThere I was on the last day of my bear hunt. My guide had left my side for a briefmoment to go and glass for bears. No sooner did he get fifteen feet away when anine footer stood up not more than 25 yards in front of me. He walked the river bankright towards me, crossed the game trail in front of me which lead to the creek, andproceeded further down the river. I must have looked like an idiot jumping up and downlike some sort of crazed cartoon character, trying to get my PH’s attention, all whilekeeping as quiet as possible to avoid my detection from the bear. As soon as he saw me, the bear winded us and took off straight uphill, bounding for the mountainside in full sprint. My whole life I had dreamed about hunting a monster bear on Kodiak Island and at that moment all hope had seemingly been crushed. I mean, how could I get skunked in bear central, this wasn’t possible. To truly appreciate the shear & utter disappointment I was feeling, I should probably go back ten days earlier to when this whole roller coaster ride started. When I first arrived in Kodiak, I was as gitty as a child on Christmas Morning andI had every reason to feel that way. I was hunting with my friend Mark Spillane, I hada great outfitter in Sam Fejes, and I was fulfilling one of my lifelong hunting goals.Well, those feelings were cut a little short when I found out we were going to be stuckin Kodiak for a couple of days. Poor weather had grounded us and we were not ableto take the float plane over to Olga Bay which was our final hunting destination. Aftera cozy two day stay, we were off and I am here to tell you that the scenery on theway over was nothing short of spectacular. Mark and I were hunting two separateareas and we would go our separate ways until the end of the trip. This was truly aremote location, and in true Alaskan fashion, it would prove to be another greatadventure in the world’s last great frontier. For the next six days I found myself hikingan hour or so before sun up to different locations to glass all day looking for a shooter.Days were about 35 degrees, rainy, and very windy. Definitely not comfortableconditions in anyone’s book. We would normally stay until after dark, before we madeour way back to the cabin. What added to the difficulty of trekking across this terrainwas the fact that the contour of the land was what I would describe as an “eggcarton”. The landscape was riddled with these extremely annoying 1 to 3 foot holesthat were all but invisible even in daylight hours due to the tall grass that covered themountainside. On my previous trip to the Alaskan mainland I had trapest across theBerring Swamp to bag my monster moose and climbed a mountain in search of a goat, 13
  15. 15. but traveling over a minefield of holes was certainly not like anything I had ever anticipated. I guess it was more annoying than anything. We spotted many bears each and every day but none were, according to my guide “Kodiak worthy”. On my sixth day my hunting pulse spiked once again. I got my first glimpse of why this Island chain is known around the globe for its bears. We spotted a 10 foot plus bear wading in the shallows of a creek fishing for his salmon lunch. We made our way ever so cautiously toward him. By the time we got down the hillside, he was on theother side of the waterway and was bedding down for a nap. We decided to wait itout. How long could an afternoon bear nap take anyway? Well after several hourspassed, the big fella was up and about, apparently hungry for another sashimi snack.This time we could really get a good glimpse of this fine specimen. He was full bodiedand judging by his coat and belly, he was about ready for a winters’ slumber in somedistant cave. His paws were absolutely huge and garnered long white claws, indicativeof a true trophy boar. This was it, the moment I had been waiting for since mychildhood. We crept a little closer so I could find a good rest to anchor my rifle, Icarefully slide the safety to fire . . . POW ! ! ! The unthinkable had occurred. Mytrusted rifle that had performed exemplary for me time and time again had gone offaccidentally. A panic stricken chill came over my body. I ran to the nearest tree, 14
  16. 16. glassed for my bear to see if somehow I could salvage this huge debacle. By the timeI aquired him in my scope, he was slowly trotting away and then appeared like he wasgoing to stop. Wow, could I really be this lucky. I quickly ejected the live round frommy gun and replaced it in order to re-cock my weapon. The bear, with all his mammalcuriousity, had stopped in his tracks and looked back giving me a perfect shot quartering towards me at about 100 yards. My original forty something yard shot would have been better, but at this point 200 would have suited me just fine. I took a deep breath and slowly squeezed the trigger . . . Click. Nothing. At that moment the image of that bear in my crosshairs was eternally burned into my mind. My earlier panic had now changed to inexplicable rage beyond belief as my dream bear casually strolled offinto the thick cover. I was about a nano second away from wrapping my gun around atree, swarovsky scope and all. Luckily I contained myself.Losing an opportunity on a trophy animal is never easy, but this unfortunate chain ofevents was bordering on the brink of insanity. From that point on, I was on a missionto find another bear of equal or better status. The problem was I was now on myseventh day of a 10 day hunt. Maybe, just maybe, the hunting gods had a littlesomething tucked away for me.The next few days weren’t exactly productive. We had tried several other areas forfear that my gunshot may have scared off the bears near our honey hole. We triedeverything and everywhere, but to noavail. I did take a nice full bodied fox,but it was no consolation for my lostbear. I eventually found myself onthe last day of the hunt clinging to asmall hope that I could somehow pulla rabbit er or bear, out of my hat.On that last day my nerves were atdefcon 4. We decided to go back tothe scene of the crime praying thatall the local inhabitants hadforgotten about the gunshot a fewdays before. This brings me towhere I began this story, stairing at 15
  17. 17. the tail end of a nine footer running away with my last hope of redemption. The suddenrealization came over me that I only had two more hours left of daylight left and I wasflying out the next morning. After all I had been through, I was gonna get skunked andthere was nothing that I could do about it. Sure I had been skunked before. Most recently on a mountain goat hunt when I got stranded on a glacier in an Ice & wind storm for 36 hours, but that was mother nature. This was just absolutely awful. I could still see the image of my bear in my crosshairs from days before. Suddenly I heard a mild whistle. It was one of my guides getting my attention from up the path. (At this point I hadcommandeered Sam Fejes himself to help out). He looked crazy excited so I scurriedup to him as quiet as I could. And there HE was. The SAME bear from the other daywas slowly meandering down the creek right towards us. There was absolutely nomistaking his square head and long white tipped claws. I quickly got my self intoposition and patiently waited for him to make his way right down to me. He finally gaveme about a fifty yard broadside shot on the far bank of the creek. My first shot foundits way right in the bread basket and I knew it was a good one. At first it had appearedthat my .338 win mag had indeed tamed the beast until my PH yelled out, “hit emagain!” My second shot also hit true but had seemed to trigger his angry button. Thisanimal went from lethargically mulling around to full charge in an instant. He wascoming like a freight train, and he meant business. At this point I put a third roundin him and Sam (Fejes) shot himalso. This spun him around notmore than 15 yards away juston the other side of the water.I then gave him one moreanchoring shot for goodmeasure. WOW! Did that reallyjust happen? There was aboutan hour left of daylight on thelast day of my hunt and I wasstanding over an absolutelybeautiful animal. I now believein the hunting gods and payhomage to them often.Ironically, Mark had gotten his trophy bear on the last day also.Mine was BIGGER! 16

  31. 31. Safari Club International started the Sportsmen Against Hunger program in 1989. Since then, tens of millions of meals have been served at local soup kitchens, food banks, or other charitable organizations, such as The Salvation Army and Kids in Distress. Some hunters take their harvest to a licensed meat processor, pay for the processing themselves, and then donate the meat to the needy. Other hunters choose to share the meat from their freezers throughout the year. Because the demand for low-fat, low-cholesterol, preservative-free, high-protein meat is so great, these offerings by SCI members are vital to the nutritional success of food banks across America and the world.In 2006, 314,275 pounds of wild game meat were donated to relieforganizations; in 2007, the figure had jumped to 377,072 lbs., which is theequivalent of 1,508,288 meals. In the 2008 season, we set a new recordwith 412,254 lbs. Thats more than 206 tons! 2010 SCI South Florida Members Donations: Joe Hand - 30 lbs. Ray Moses - 200 lbs. Dan Beckham - 2000 lbs. Mike Yeary - 2000 lbs. (WE NEED DONATIONS!!)SCI South Florida Chapter will help process or provide transportation to collect the meat.
