Just got back from Kodiak and shot 3 bucks. The largest was a 4X5 with one broken tine and 2 nubs. What makes it unusual is that it has paddled antlers like a moose. I caped him out thinking that I'm going to get a shoulder mount since he's so unusual. Can anybody recommend a good taxidermist on the peninsula?
As far as deer numbers, I would have like to have seen this place before the last two hard winters. I saw gobs of deer and hundreds of sets of tracks in the brush down low. Up higher there were good numbers (enough to be picky in which ones to shoot) out feeding in the open grassy areas in the mornings.
