Although I wasn't in Barrow this year for whaling; we are still in Anchorage.
But under the 'fair use act' I can use these photos from a friend that was there.
A whale was caught not too far away from this crew, That animal being cut up and divided brought the smell of blood into the air; polar bears soon arrive in many different locations looking for food.
Making noise, waving arms, shouting and firing a rifle into the ice close by is enough to scare them away.
It is always a good thing to have someone in front of you with a rifle!! (chuckle) Just in case.!!
Wow, great photos and very talented (and patient) kids. Great job
