    Day 19 of a 15-day hunt

    Semi-Custom .375 h&h

    So, I'm building a semi-custom LH .375 h&h for a 2015 Kodiak bear hunt. It's a LH Win Model 70. I'm tossing the stock and putting a McMillan. The questions are: 1. Do I cut it from 24" to 22"? Why/why not? 2. Do I Cerakote or Duracoat? Why/why not? Thanks in advance for the input.

    Camo patterns

    Does anyone believe there's a need for a new waterfowling camo pattern? If so, what do you think works or doesn't work? Do you think the camo should be contrast and confuse or photorealism. What do you like and dislike? Realtree, Mossy Oak, Optifade?

    2010 Brooks Range caribou hunt

    We saw quite a few cows over the next couple of days and saw 1 bull that was worthy of taking about 30 minutes before being extracted but I had a representative Alaskan caribou and everyone was well satisfied with our hunt and harvests. We were picked up in rainy and somewhat foggy conditions...

    2010 Brooks Range caribou hunt

    That night, we ate fresh caribou using the 10 lb. bag of charcoal we had brought with us and decided to sleep in. Even though I had another tag, I decided I wouldn’t shoot another bull unless it was decidedly bigger than any of the 3 we had already bagged. The next day we spent hauling the...

    Best way to ship cape and horns

    Looking for best way to ship cape and horns from Fairbanks to Anchorage; and, maybe meat. In the past I've used Everts from Galena to Anchorage and I see Everts goes via truck from FAI to ANC. I also see that Alaska Air does cargo from FAI to ANC too. Any recommendations? Thanks.
