    Look out Tlingit, I think that hunt could be worse than the Deer Mtn. goat hunt.

    I drew this tag and will be going. Not sure of my game plan yet. Also not sure about when I will be going.

    sounds like most people hunt the south end of this island. i am told there is a small herd that hangs out near 3 way passage,.. does anyone have any information on this? also are there many elk sightings on the north end of etolin. ive been planning my hunt almost nonstop since i got drawn and i think i got a pretty good game plan now. i would be curious to know where some of you other forum members plan on base camping, im sure some of us will end up in the same area

    You guys are tougher than I am. I quit putting in for that tag a few years ago after I went with my friend when he drew it. It was just a miserable experience. We got hammered by rain and wind for 11 days. Which is pretty much the norm for Clarence Strait that time of year. We had planned on staying only 9 days but we couldn't get out of the anchorage for a couple extra days. We're talking a rubber rain gear show all the way here. You're going to want extra everything including Xtra Xtra tuffs, spare hats and gloves and probably some dry firewood. Extra clothes are so important because it's nearly impossible to get your stuff to dry out down here once it gets wet, which it will. The elk are hard to find that time of year too. They are out of the alpine and in the jungle somewhere between the top and the bottom.

    Good luck, stay safe and have fun. I'll be thinking about you when the storm is pounding on my bedroom window and I get up to put a log on the fire.
    Alpine is awesome...

    Beau at least with me you'll be popping logs in the tepee stove. The sound of bugling elk won't keep me in the tent long though. I was super fortunate to hit a rare weather window last Oct.

    I got my new Hoyt arriving tomorrow morning.

    Not on my hunt last year. I anticipate that this year in Sept. that will change. At least I can hope.

    Beau had it spot on for October weather.

    It sounds like you would be a good hunting partner with that comfortable setup up and still rip roaring ready to get after them!

    There are elk on the south end of the island but I have never heard of anyone seeing a nice bull there. Lots of cows and small bulls.
