    He looks like a baby. Is my perception off, Frank?

    Thanks John. Gail, this one weighted several hundred pounds and the largest that I saw. Its likely the angle that deceives you. He was a veteran of many years battles, covered in scars and all the others let him be where he wanted without question or challenge.

    Where was this Frank?

    It was in Hyder, AK, John. This is a small town near the south east tip of Alaska. It is reached by flying/driving to Stewart, British Columbia, then crossing the border. Due to its southern location, its one of the earlier Salmon runs and is a drive by location. See the Fish Creek Wildlife Observation site managed by the US Forest Service..

    Another great shot Frank. BTW did he get this fish?

    Barely Mike. The white shape behind his right front foot is the fish, held by its tail. Its about 21/2 feet long and he brought it up and crunched its head with a pop that could be heard at 100 yards. Sounded like a pistol shot going off.
