Spent the last week circumnavigating Kodiak and Afognak by boat. Lots of deer on the beaches. The North end of Kodiak, Afognak, Shuyak, Spruce and Whale Islands still have lots of snow all the way to the beach. The number of deer on the beach has decreased from the week before, and those that remain seem to be spending more time lying down conserving energy. The deer near the capes seem to be doing better, since they are blown or burned off. Saw one elk not looking real great either. The west side and southeast sides of Kodiak seem to be doing better, the snow line is moving up from the beach at a pretty fast pace. Still haven't seen a bear or tracks. If you have a tag and plan on hunting the next two weeks, bring a snowshoes and a plastic sled, as all the inland valleys still have lots of snow. Temps are still down into the twenties at night and the forecast is calling for more northwest wind, which seems to be keeping Kodiak record cold this winter. Good luck to all the spring bb hunters out there! I'll be hitting East Afognak with akscootnshoot the end of the month to try and connect on a couple Kodiak groundhogs, looking forward to that!
