I have my doubts that it was taken in ANWR. Sorry but interior griz dont get that big. Thast a brownie from out west (probably). I'd like more info also cuz if it was an interior griz, it would definitly make world book. definitly a nice animal that I would like to put my cross hairs on though.
The guy in the photo is Joe Hendricks, who's a master guide in Ak. He has guide areas in ANWR, Kodiak, and the Alaska Peninsula. I agree with lilbiggun, there's no way it's a bear from the North Slope. It's a solid 10 footer, and they just don't grow that big up there. Here's his web site: joe's page
I just went and looked at trophy photos and it says it was taken in ANWR. I still don't believe it.
