My Partner’s a Real Bear Today!
Iron County. 30 x 24 in, acrylic on canvas. CO Ryan Aho knew of an
old bear bait site in Iron County and in September 2005 went to
see if it had been baited. He found a young man there, who was very
chatty and said he had not used the site the previous year, but had
shot a nice bear. More talk led to fact that the bear had been shot in
an area the hunter was not permitted for. Ryan ended up confiscating
the mounted bear and I thought the scene warranted a painting.
