    Rokslide 2021 Youth Photo Contest, sponsored by Western Edge Gear

    In hindsight I should have snapped the picture with the beautiful bay behind me, but was way more worried about a brown bear popping out of the grass. Testicle free Blacktail taken late October.

    2022 boat based hunt out of Old Harbor

    Hunted out of old harbor the last week of October. Great deer numbers, but be prepared because the mature bucks are probably not going to be down low. Be prepared to hike to the top of the mountains to get into the nicer deer. Weather was great for 3 days of our 5 day trip and we had to fly out...

    Youth on Kodiak?

    If you are in shape enough to pack out a deer plus all your gear, then you should be fine. Not too hard until you get a deer down away from the boat or camp etc.

    Zamberlan boot purchase for Kodiak Blacktail

    I hunted end of October, they need to be waterproof and insulated or you will be miserable. And bring waterproof gaiters too. Walking through the mess that kodiak ground is I stepped up to my knee In a hidden pocket of water. Just have to be careful there.

    Who’s doing Kodiak 2021

    Bucks were starting to rut pretty good last week when I was there. Saw a lot of big ones still way up high with the does up there, but some of the does we saw down low had bucks with them but not normally. Old harbor.

    Cardboard Boat Races! Scout Troop 1103

    Huge fan of the scouting program and glad I worked and earned my eagle. Good on you for helping the kids down a brighter future and I am sure making lots of memories. And I won my pine wood derby race with a sleek car with weights loaded on the back end so I reached the exact weight limit. Added...

    2021 blacktail bucks

    Old Harbor Kodiak blacktails. Velvet deer had no testicles so he stays in velvet. Awesome time in the hardest terrain I have ever walked through. 400 yard shot on the velvet deer and it took 90 minutes to get to him crossing the alder choked creeks.

    Hunting out of old harbor and saw a lot more deer today, they blend in way better then I was expecting, and I guarantee I missed more than a few in the long grass at long distances.

Stopped and glasses a few places just for practice and had no luck seeing anything. Ha close run in...

    Ethics regarding spot "sleuthing" - what's your take?

    I use hiking rating websites and see what wildlife people are seeing. Been helpful for bear hunting locally! Also to answer the OP I would check it out, but normally I use you tubers content to help teach my self where I should be looking for animals or strategy to get on them.

    Over Kill?

    Also this was a joke thread as I was bear hunting. Will be going back with a 223 for more as 2 others ran to private after I shot. I tan everything I harvest normally for practice but just wanted to get rid of the deer eating varmin as soon as I could.

    Over Kill?

    So far really liking it. Harvested 2 bears and a elk so far with it and have had it for 8 months. All under 100 yard shots. 1st bear fell over right there as I blew it out it’s heart. Elk only made it 30 yards, I had a quartering towards shot there and blew out the lungs with no exit wound...
