    Default SE Alpine Deer Hunt

    kingfisherktn son#1 & kingfisherktn son#2 left Friday afternoon in son #2's boat and decided to try a new area they've been studing. They anchored in a bay and hiked 5 hrs up to alpine. They saw numerous does and bucks and missed out on a couple BIG ones on Saturday. Sunday morning son#2 took this nice 4-pointer.

    From the sound of it they'll need a stretcher to get the old man up where they went.


    Son#2

    Wish I'd see deer like that on Douglas island here...

    I know they exist.....but they are the old smart ones that dodge the hordes of people that walk the woods there.....

    Rob: But that's where you find the big ones. Now where is that helicopter when an old guy needs one.

    Very nice looking buck!!! I want to say it's a "Big Island" buck.

    Too bad the WX sucked so bad.

    I've done alpine hunts with my son the past 3 years. This year I have to sit out due to recovery from a knee operation.

    I think I'm going to let him go solo or with a buddy. He's 17 and I think ready to do it on his own. He missed opening day due to his fishing job. Has some time off during the middle of this week - or he may be done gillnetting for the season.

    That is one fine looking animal. I got a big one like that a couple years ago that thought he was a mountain goat. Tell your boys they did a good job.

    They brought you pics the next best thing. As hot as it was they may have been doing you the favor by leaveing you at home in front of the fan.

    He borrowed my vacuum sealer, so I'm sure I'll see some.
