    Size and Age of Chinook salmon decreasing across its range.

    Well obviously, but that doesnít change the fact that saltwater plays a significant role too. The rivers in SEAK, where there hasnít been targeted freshwater fishing for Chinook in decades, are experiencing similar decreases in size and age.

      Sounds like a good excuse for a new gun and new bow set-up, let us know what you decide

I also have a Remington 722 that was used in PWS to hunt seals and sea otters. It isn't in as good condition as the 86.
        Would love to see pics of those Ross.

          I have posted pics of the 722 in the past, but can't remember if it was on this site.

            Blatchfords were the ones using the 86 on Beluga whales. Percy and his son Joel. In the Susitna River mouth. 1970's.

              Very cool! The Blatchfords were the real deal. I never met the famous Percy, but I have met Joel.
              I'm not sure what Brooks and Reardon were using to dispatch belugas out in Bristol Bay, but I think it was an .06. My brothers-in-law used an old M94 in 25.35.

                Percy was a legend. He did amazing things in WW2. Served part of the time with Audy Murphy, and then hunted with him up here afterwards. Audy gave Percy an M1 Garand. Joel ended up with it, but the only provenance he had was the 2 of them together on a hunt up here and the M1 was in the photos. It got sold for the price of an ordinary M1.
