Just thought I would share some highlights from my goat,bear, deer hunt this fall on Kodiak Island. As you all know that have ever hunted Kodiak just getting in the field can be a challenge at times. We started our hunt on 20 Oct and were delayed for weather getting into the field with Seahawk Air. I must say Roland is a class act he has been flying commercial since 1979 and is one hell of a pilot if I find myself on Kodiak again I will be sure to book with him again. On our pick up day Roland shows up and says hurry up winds are getting stronger so we hustled got everything loaded and in there wiith up to 40 mph gust at times pushing the beaver around like its a paper airplane he showed great comfort reading a tide book while flying while im a bit concerned even though I have jumped out of perfectly good airplanes in the Army. When we landed I shook his hands Alaskan stlye and "said hell of a job Roland" he just smiled and said thanks humbly. So I had been lucky enough to draw a Brown bear tag, and goat tag in the same bay.We started off focusing on goats and every attempt to get to them seem to be an obstacle weather, fog, or just not being able to close the distance after the 3rd attempt I was able to close the distance and take a mature billy unofficial measurement im guesing will be 9 1/2 -10 in. I got in position and the closest I could get was 425 yds we were at 2500 ft and the snow was coming down, and I let the 300 ultra mag bark my first shot missed its mark so I took aim again and wounded the billy hitting him in his shoulder. I then hit him again and still he was on his feet what a tough old fellow. The final shot I took was at 200 yds and he fell off a cliff about 200 feet to his death.To make it bitter sweet it was the last day of the season 415 pm to be exact goes to show hard work does pay off with persistence. I couldn't have done it without a solid hunting partner tiger 15 (Terry) he stayed optimistic and driven as it was his own tag I couldn't have had a better friend to share the expiernece. We then focused on getting him a solid blacktail buck and also searched for the elusive kodiak brown bear which we never found in 10 days. We had a great time taken 2 nice bucks and a billy hunting hard for 10 days I must say if you can hunt Kodiak you can hunt anywhere as the alders and the weather would be enough to keep the weak minded in the tent. The artic oven a08 kept us in high spirits warm and bucked 60 mph winds at times.Our best meal was blacktail tenderloin with red potatoes cokked up stew style. Living my dream once again in Alaska very thankful for being able to take 3 fine animals without loss or injury.Again thanks to my buddy Terry which I hope he will share his version.
