    That buck on the beach is super. He looks beautiful and kinda tired from chasing the ladies.

    Where are you hunting out of?

    We were in my skiff we didn't shoot that buck he was too pretty we just admired him and snapped some pictures. We had hiked into the woods earlier and shot some and were on the way home and took some pics of him

    Thumbs up Nice job

    My hat's off to you boys. It is refreshing to see such a respect for the resource. I especially like the old school deer packs. Thanks for sharing those photos.

    Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

    How is the old school deer pack tied, I can't quite figure it out.

    Looks like front/rear legs joined behind the neck with some additional 'joints' installed

    We used to cut the skin around the knees on the front legs, then break the joint. Cut the thin skin on the back legs(slit), next to the musk glands and the tendon, push the front hooves through this slit to the broken joint. Turn the foreleg 90 degrees like a toggle so it can't come back through. We would then put it on like a pack with the head down and hike out. Oh yeah, don't forget to remove the musk glands before packing.

    Default Awesome

    Fellas that is terrific! We spend a lot of time in the winter discussing packs, jackets, and other gear where each piece costs several hundred bucks...nice to see that one can still hunt without excessive hi-tech gear, with just some good woods sense, motivation and a git-er-done mindset!

    Default Backwoods boys

    There are still a few of those types here in Sitka. I tried hunting with one a few weeks ago and he wasn't sure about the forcast. I told him just to look at a few websites on the computer and he didn't know how to. This same guy has a very, very impressive collection of hunting trophies and guides clients throughout Alaska. He also goes light and packs out his deer just like that, whole. We still got em and not everyone is a techno hunter yet. At least we got more folks hauling around digital cameras.

    I'm sure many of you folks know individuals in AK with that same get-er-done mindset that haven't embrased technology.

    When I asked, "Where your hunting out of?" I was wonder what town you live in.

    Where do you live?

    Oh sorry I thought you meant what were we in. The deer are outta craig and the goat is in kodiak. I lived in southeast for 16 years and kodiak the last 2. The kodiak road system deer hunt is very hard I've only got one small fork I love southeast hunting. Kodiak goat huntingis amazing though we saw probably 60 goats in one group on the zachar bay hunt
