We have had a great fall so far …. In mid August Stephen came down from Anchorage to hunt with us again. His main goal was to take some Deer meat back home. Stephen is also a Birder and still needs a few birds from this SE Alaska area to check off his list. The Red-Breasted Sapsucker was one he was keeping an eye out for. He spent an extra day in Ketchikan, around Ward Lake, sighting birds on his way to Prince of Wales Island.
The weather during the hunt was very stormy, with wet rain-fog. Stephen got the full SE summer of rain experience, in an alpine backpack tent camp. The summer 2017 season in Ketchikan area is going on record as the most inches of rain recorded.
Despite the weather he was able to take 3 nice bucks. He returned north with several boxes of Deer meat ….. but didn’t get any sightings of the birds he was looking for.
We hope Stephen’s fall hunts, up north, go as well as his Prince of Wales Island Deer hun with Muskeg Excursions went. It was a pleasure spending time with Stephen again and we wish him well in his new job ….. ‘retired’.
