  • Aug/Spetember Kodiak Hunt+ Sitka Cape

    Hey all I posted awhile back for some meat storage recomendadations for my trip to Kodaik and wanted to follow up with how our hunt went. We had a great time and couldnt have planned a better honeymoon for my wife an I. We had some hellacious storms but overall it was spectacular. My wife ended up getting a stag that was a 9x4 and my buck was a 18" 3x3 with eye guards. We could have filled a few more tags but decided we were happy and wanted to make sure we could keep all the meat. If anyone has questions feel free to PM me. Also I am wanting to get my wifes mounted but was not able to keep the summer cape of her buck. If anyone has a good summer cape my taxidermist and I would be very interested. Thanks again to everyone in the forum who offered help!

    That's quite the antler configuration on your wife's buck...congrats to you both.

    Looks like you opted for a rifle hunt, instead of an archery hunt, eh?

      Dahlberg's Taxidermy should have a cape or two. (907) 315-4432, give Jesse a call.

      Congrats on a great hunt and nice bucks.

        Pics don't work for me. When you say stag....are you meaning Blacktail? a 9x4 Blacktail sounds incredible and near unheard of....pics or it didn't happen!

          The photos are gone now, but it is a Blacktail, one of the cactus bucks, buck-lites, stags, they have lots of names, but they are all buck and no balls.
          They have hormonal issues that cause their antlers to stay in velvet and form in unusual ways.

            The pics did work for a very short time, and it sure looked like it did indeed happen...he must have removed them for some reason. Nothing to see here folks...move along...

              My impression is that these guys don't shed their antlers in the winter like the rest of them, and that's what causes the strange configurations? I easily could have misinterpreted this. Seems like we see more and more of these guys in the Ayakulik/Alitak areas now.

                I was being more sarcastic than anything. But would have liked to see such a unique deer.

                  I heard it was from in-breeding, but I don't know, haven't researched it.

                            It doesn't look like he can send or receive PM's yet...maybe Brian M. will fix it for him?
