Just starting the planning for a black bear hunt in the sound next spring. Initial thoughts are to get dropped by a transporter and maybe use a Cat to get around the bays with. A buddy has a 25hp motor that I can use. I don't have the cat yet, don't have the motor, and have never hunted the sound - - and am new to Alaska.

What am I getting into? LOL.

And is a Cat okay to get around the bays with - is the 25 too large? I want a cat for floating - so thinking dual usage for it at times.
