    Default Hunting season prince william sound

    Please remember that if the wind is blowing more knots than your vessel is feet long, or projected to blow more, do not go. Leaving Whittier if the wind is blowing out of the West, which can happen at a moments notice, only use 1/3 of your fuel because it takes 2/3 to get back to Whittier. Make sure you have a survival suit for everyone on board and if the vessel is an open skiff or a Zodiac have them on when you leave. The Coast Guard is 3 hrs from our waters if they leave immediately they never leave immediatly, first they try to get someone to help you, then they ask if you will accept a commercial tow, then they may or may not come get you even then. Please do not put your children in harms way. You are headed out into the open ocean, at this time of year 60 knot winds are not uncommon. Every year we see people leave the harbor overloaded with gear and people, our EMS risk their lives every year in order to save someone who has little to no common sense. Please do not forget the hazzards out in the sound. Your life depends on it. Be Safe have survival suits, no deer or bear meat is worth risking your life for. Happy Hunting

    I think this person is just trying to give good advice to those who dont know what they're getting into. Nothing wrong with the little voice that is saying dont! For all that are going for there merry voyages, hope for the best and a safe return.
