The Kerr brothers both shot black bears on Mitkof Island last month. Kaleb's bear scored 16-14/16" skull and was 5'9" from nose to tail. He made the shot from 147 yards with a .308 rifle. The eight year old shot his bear on May 26. Nathan, 9, took his bear at 80 yards with a .308 rifle. His bear scored a 19-2/16" skull and was 6'8" from nose to tail. Nathan took his bear at night on May 4. It was the first big game animal taken by each hunter.
