Where abouts are you heading and when? Are you drop camping it or floating? If I don't draw a elk tag for Afognak I may be interested. I drew a goat tag for the island here, but I should be able to fill that on a weekend hunt or two.
I know some guys that went out of Dillingham a few years back. The first year was a bust, but the second year they got into em and got some real nice heads. My dad was up in Wood Tikchik brown bear hunting last fall. Didn't see anything over 8' so went home empty handed. Not really sure how my vacation time is going to pan out this fall, but I'm interested. Shoot me an e-mail. email@example.com
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
