    Alaskan Bowhunters Association - Grizzly Bear Hunt Raffle

    I apologize to the three guys who purchased tickets too late. The system was supposed to block sales after the 300th ticket and it obviously did not. All three were issued personal emails apologizing for the error, and refunds were issued. It would be unfair to the original draw to allow...

    Kodiak winter so far?

    I leave in 5 days for a goat hunt. All reports I've received mirror what has already been posted. Very mild winter thus far, not much snow at all down low, and temps are still luke warm for the next few weeks. Winter goats, and fall brown bear tag to pair with the annual sitka hunt. Love me...

    Do I complain about the OnX recurring fees??

    Companies run promotional all the time, it's how they attract new customers on the fence and grow their business. If it isn't worth the price, their prices will adjust accordingly in the future as demand falls off. I can see for a guy who hunts his same in state honey holes every year why the...

    Bear fence???

    I've never used one on a caribou hunt, I've used them a few times on Kodiak. They certainly don't hurt anything if you can swing the weight flying in.

    Meat Freezer

    I have a medium chest freezer and a larger upright. Upright for meat to cycle through next, then chest freezer for the newest meat if upright is overflowing and then space taken up with frozen gallon jugs of water. I use the gallon jugs in coolers during the summer to not buy ice. This helps...

    Solo Kodiak drop hunt

    I've gone with and without a fence. We had one last year that we didn't ground properly. Slept like babies the first 5 nights knowing all our gear was safe while we were away. Day 6 I got into the whiskey a bit too much and accidentally touched the fence, which barely even tickled me. We all...

    Which InReach Plan?

    I just got the annual unlimited text plan for me. 3/4 of my state doesn’t have cell coverage and it’s easier for me to not remember when to turn on/off coverage. I’ve had 40 texts used up in one conversation before when solo in the tent on the sheep mountain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sat Phone or No Sat Phone

    I own both. Have the new inreach mini and an iridium 9575. They each have their uses, although I believe I'll be parting ways with the sat phone after this fall. I just don't use it enough to justify the $480 in minutes annually.

    March Madness 2018

    I bleed blue still so I picked a terrible bracket with Kentucky making the final four. As long as Duke and Carolina both choke early I couldnt care less what happens next!

    Best credit card for outdoorsmen

    I live in Alaska so the choice is easy for me, I have used my Alaska Airlines card since 2012 for everything from a pack of gum to rent throughout college and medical bills. I pay it off twice a month and have never carried a balance. I have received $5k+ in free airfare at this point. For...

    Kenetrek Mtn Lite Boots sz 11

    Moderate use, just never fit my foot quite right (no kenetreks have). Still have plenty of life left in them for the right person. Asking $100, but make me an offer. I can get pics tomorrow if needed once I return home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
