A good friend of mine and his daughter ( who drew the tag ) and I are flying into the Chugach come August. Hopefully we can follow Rebecca's lead and pull a hog out of there. It's tough not to keep reading her write up with that beauty of a ram in there. Looking forward to watching the documentary on it.
Spring Brown/Black combo for me via boat Mid May, August opener Mt. Goat then a second hunt with CtP for goat, Then run up into interior Alaska for a epic sheep hunt in the Chugach Mts for a pair of drawing permits (I'll be the packer,spotter, and knife man). Then driving up to hunt a Caribou tag and drawing Moose Tag with Luke and CtP. Thats just the start of my hunting season August-Sept. Then I'm taking my boat to Etolin Island where I have a drawing permit for Rosevelt Elk October 1. After that if I haven't already got my freezer PLUGGED! I'll have 6 hot Sitka deer tags burning a hole in my pocket and the Tongass to chase them. It's lining up to be a fairly busy hunting season. I'm hitting the gym and getting ready for plenty of packing. Hopefully this will qualify me as an official RokSlide Hardcore member. Grin. Actually humping a bull elk out of the S. Etolin Wilderness IMHO is really hardcore. I've got my corked boots ready for the job.
Be great to meet up with both CtP and Bighorse for moose and bou if the timing works out, and you guys are always welcome at the house or the cabin! You were great house guests, and you even cooked me dinner...several times!
Looking forward to August when our season kicks off...I have a feeling it's going to be pretty busy between August and December around here...
