I have PM'd a few guys on here, trying not to repost the same thing over and over again. But I haven't found much info on the DB291 draw tag (East Afognak Island).. Has anyone hunted this before? I have never been to Kodiak or the surrounding area and would greatly appreciate any information that could be given in terms of the terrain and the bear patterns I could expect during the spring.
I was originally considering making the hunt from 1-15 MAY, however I would really like to get a bear with no rubs so he would make a great rug. Does the 1-15MAY dates sound right for this, or should I make my trip earlier?
Also, for those that have hunted this area, what size bear can I expect to see on average? Like anyone else, I would love to get a large bear, but I am not sure what would be considered a large bear for this area...
I greatly appreciate any information that can be given about this area. I am trying to do as much research on it as possible, however I am currently in Afghanistan and it can be rather rare on how often I can get more than 30 minutes behind a computer with internet access. The time I do get here, I try to devote to the wife as much as possible.
Well, thank you very much for any information.
Oh, and I do have one other question.. I currently own a 300mag, but am looking at getting a 375H&H or 375 Ruger for this hunt.. Any suggestions between those rifles? Do you think the 300mag will do the job?
