    DB261 East Afognak

    I feel very fortunate to have drawn the DB261 (Bear) tag that covers the East side of Afognak. I have been researching the pros and cons of renting one of the state cabins, at Laura Lake for example or hunting near the hatchery at Kitoi and paying the native land trespass fees. I would...

    YC831 Great Bull and a Happy Kid!

    Nunivak...Finally Got Lucky!

    Getting Prodex to Nunivak

    Brainstorming here....what is the best way to get pyrodex pellets and primers out to Nunivak for a musk ox hunt? Obviously not in luggage, but I wonder if I ordered direct from Cabelas or somewhere they could ship direct? U.S. Mail? Thoughts?

    To Illustrate a Point...

    We harp all the time that just because there are grizzly bears at your bait it does not mean the black bears will not come in. Here are a couple of pics of a HUGE interior grizzly they don't come much bigger... The first pics show how freaking big this bear is....
