Did a little cruise today with a few buddies in the boat to go look for an Etolin 20" 2 point. After 20+ miles of cost (or close) we saw ZERO deer. We did however see a pod of 8 killer whales and 12 elk! We got some awesome video of the herd, it included a small bull, 8 cows and 3 calves. There were 2 cows that were immense. Apparently there is a registration hunt right now, should have read the regs :-)
Went over to the POW side and ran up from Ratz to Whale Pass. Zero deer. Weird but all in all a great day, good to see the elk for sure.
Bighorse - I did try to PM you after your message but your box was full and I was a bit late. Sorry my friend, it looks like you were successful. THe elk were right below your sunset photo if it is where I think it was. Was that looking at my place?
