Hi All, My Name is Dan and have been on the site for awhile but have not yet participated. I am from Far Northern California and Southeastern Oregon and hunt all over the west with all methods and cant wait for my first trip to AK. I really enjoy the site and the wealth of knowledge that everyone provides.
I currently booked my airline tickets to Kodiak from August 21 thru September 2 with Kingfisher Aviation. My wife an I are planning doing an archery deer hunt in the grants lagoon area. I was curious from anyone has any gear recomendations for my wife and I. We have done plenty of backpacking and realize we will need to prepare for rain and wind but I was just curious if there were any other "Need to Have Items". Also after the trip we plan on exploring AK for another 10 days into September. If we get lucky, is there a place that anyone can recommend that we store meat frozen in the anchorage area while we are exploring for 10 days and then pick up prior to flying back? Thanks to anyone who can offer any info and if anyone on the site has questions about hunting AZ, OR, ID, NV, CA or Colorado feel free to send me a message and I can pass on some info on hunting those states for deer, pronghorn and elk. Thanks
