I'm tossing around the idea of another alpine deer hunt like I did on Kodiak in August of '08. I like to go to new places and I'm thinking of P.O.W. this time. Not as much bear danger as Kodiak so I'll be much more comfortable taking all three of my kids. It doesn't hurt that my AK airmiles can get me to Ketchikan as cheap as Kodiak and that I have cheap room and board in K-town.
Anybody have any experience with P.O.W. that early? Do the float accessable lakes get heavy use for this type of hunting? and lastly, any recommendations on hunting oriented air taxis in Ketchikan?
PM me if you have info you'd like to share that you don't want out in public
