For those seeking Polar Bears and were told there were few to none in Alaska, think again! References, including Alaska Fish and Game will claim that sightings are few. We took a chance and caught a flight from Fairbanks to Barrow last August. It is farthest northern town in N. America. Ice pack had moved in and along with it came at least two dozen very large Polar bears. Bears gather outside town at Point Barrow where they feast on left over Whale remains. Guides in the area make a living taking people out on the sandy point and say that sightings are extremely common. Problem is that Eskimos are allowed to shoot the bears. We rushed out to see them before they were gunned down. As it was a couple of large bears were being carted off as we arrived.
