    Deer calls for blacktails

    The whistle is such a great way to get em to stop. I haven't had luck bringing them in with it like a fawn call does though.

    A Good Town in SE to Do a Deer Hunt From the Road System?

    FWIW, I called DJ's rentals back in Sept to book a truck for Nov and they were all booked up. Then called Rainforest Rentals who told me they no longer deliver. Ended up renting a nice 4Runner thru Turo in Ketchikan. Even with the ferry costs it ended up being the same price as DJ's would have...

    Knight Island Deer/Bear

    Yep, all blackies - pretty nice ones! Poops were purple, but also real slimy making me think there was still some fish mixed in there. I bet that's clearing out now though!

    Bruin Sightings?

    Montegue Deer

    Just back from deer hunting in the PWS. We got some buttons, some smaller bucks, and some does. Couldn't believe how fat all the deer were - way more than last year. Watched a couple brownies feeding on one of our gut piles which was rad.

    The Official Unit 13 Caribou Thread (2016-2017)

    On Saturday we walked into the CCCUA from the Clearwater Creek bridge and shot two cows. Over the course of the day we saw about 45 caribou in 3 family groups, including a few nice bulls. No other people :) First time caribou hunting or shooting something larger than a goose for either of us...
