be posting more pics as I get them loaded
mid May Asst Guide John Rommen and Charlie and I hired a boat
to take us over to
the Misty Fjords
and drop us off for a week
and a half. Charlie passed on lots of Brown Bears but took this
Then it was over to Prince of Wales Island for
a Black Bear hunt with Claude. The weather got way hot and hunting
was tough. The bears moved upland. Claude didn't score but we
had a great hunt. Claude booked back in for spring '98.
Darren Crain from Australia
came on a Black Bear Hunt. He took his Black bear on the 3rd day
so we climbed the mountain where he took a nice Sitka Blacktail.
The El Nenio weather set
in and totally washed out our next scheduled Sitka Blacktail
hunt with Hudson, John and Dick. I canceled the next combo hunt
that Charlie had booked because of the flooding and continued
non stop pounding rain.
We finished the season with
Ben coming in for a Mt Goat Hunt. The weather continued to pound
us. After being weathered in Ketchikan for 3 days at the beginning
of our hunt we finally got to camp. Out of 8 days we had 2 1/2
days of visibility. We did see a few Goats but Ben did not get
on the Billy he wanted.
