My friend and I hunted with Scott Mileur on Kodiak last spring. While I killed a great bear, my friend took a lesser bear of his own choosing. He isn't satisfied and wants to return in 2018. I will accompany him, but am undecided if I will hunt myself. He was not guided by Scott and Scott is booked and will not be available to guide him personally in 2018. He is nearing 60 yrs old and doesn't want to wait. He asked me to look into the other well known guides and I must admit the thought of hunting another area is kinda appealing to me as well. I spoke to Harms about the Alilulak area and Brendael about his area in Dog Salmon. I have not spoken to Kirstein about Deadman Bay. Also Munsey has come up as a possibility also. He either wants the outfitter or a long term guide who's been in with the outfitter for many years. He could wait on Scott but he's reluctant to do that. Any thoughts?
