Just got back from Kodiak a few days ago. Had a great trip with several other Bowsiters. Hunted with Homer Ocean charters. Fantastic food and an equally great group of camp mates! Dry sunny weather and limited rut activity made the hunt more challenging. Was able to tag this buck on day 2. Had 1 other good opportunity, but couldn't quite get it done. Looking forward to going back!!!
That's a nice one! Congrats!
Very nice Steff! That one will be hard to top! FM
Awesome buck! How's the deer population around the bay? Going back with Homers next year. This pic gets the fire burning a little more
Probably saw 50 - 60 deer/day. Bigger bucks just starting to get active, nosing and following does. This weeks group should do well! If they have another mild winter, next year should be awesome!
Steff is short selling his achievement. Those were tough conditions to take a 94" buck.
Did we even take 1 group photo?
That is a good one... Congrats. Ed F
It was a great time Stef. As Randy stated - the conditions were tough! Deer numbers were good - rut was a little late for us.
Everyone besides Steff!
Everyone besides Steff!
Congrats again Steff! It was fun to share the boat with a great group of guys!
Some beautiful country, glad I'm now forced to go back...
Forgot about that shot. That place had great smoked salmon. As well as everything else.
glad I was able to take the picture!
Congrats on a great buck!
Great times guys, it was a pleasure hunting with you. I particularly like that group photo at the Olds River Inn (fantastic place BTW, well worth the trip if you have time to kill on Kodiak).
That picture pretty much sums up our trip. Randy, Scott, Bill, and I appear to be thinking "Man, I am *really* enjoying myself." Cecil, on the other hand, is is clearly thinking: "Hey guys, there's boobs on the TV."
It was great running into you guys at the hotel, though I paid for it the next morning. Fun times down there, those deer are a blast.
Nick, Sorry to have missed the chance to me you. Though, I thought we'd bump into you at breakfast. Apparently, that option waned as the preceding evening persisted. lol
Matt, I think there was an arrow add on the TV and he was wondering how he could get some more flown in...
Nick, Great meeting up with you as well! Randy, I think missing breakfast had more to do with the van doors he couldn't open and all of his gear was locked inside!!
We ate breakfast at 7am, all you old timers were still sound asleep!
Looks like a good time was had by all. Congrats guys.
Great pics and buck! Congrats :)
A beauty Steff! Congrats!
Looks like island life is good:-). Several great bucks, guys! Been too long since I’ve been up there. Need to get Kodiak back on the schedule...
Good Times Nick - glad we got to have A beer together....
Congrats fellas, just missed everyone in town but that’s how she goes. Kodiak is a special place!
Looks like the famous Kodiak Inn there Nick. Great place!
Well, if you were gonna get “just one...”
Thanks for sharing Steff. I would love to get back to Kodiak. It's such beautiful country. Maybe I'll look into the Homer Ocean Charter option. Sounds like you had a real positive experience.
yep, there were boobs on that boat, lol
Steff, you sure were the star of that outing, biggest buck and most crab legs eaten, also set a deer-packing gymnastics record in the tumbling category.
"yep, there were boobs on that boat, lol"
Explains why you went to bed early most nights.
Would have liked to stay up later, but my Geritol was wearing off.....It had nothing to do with boobs.
I think the boobs comment was directed at me Steff. LOL
Fuzzy, too bad you didn't think to send me a text me with your arrow dilema... I could have Overnight shipped another arrow out to you.
A sixth arrow? That’s crazy talk, Brian. ;)
I don't have to worry about that...I have a certificate that says I'm not.
I suggest you frame that, buddy. And, hopefully, you got a wallet sized laminated card to go with it.
actually I had offers of more arrows. I don't think they'd have helped. when you suck you suck, and that week I sucked (my shooting sucked). My wit and charm were on point
Fuzzy, my friend, you should not have felt any guilt/shame for taking any offered arrows. I remember when a mutual friend ran out of Razorcaps, and we all sent arrows up the line:-)
Dooner, I seem to remember that. LOL
