  1. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon the blog and wished to say that I’ve truly enjoyed browsing the blog posts.

  2. I found this to be really interesting especially for early season hunting and stand placement. Thanks for the tips on everything

  3. Super cool blog, guys. How much did it cost you to ship your meat home from Kodiak? That Sitka Blacktail hunt has been a dream of mine for a long time, now.

    We shipped 200 lbs. of caribou home to Portland, Oregon, from Prudhoe Bay last year via FedEx, and it cost us $510.00. Not too bad, really.

    We shipped one caribou skull to Anchorage from Prudhoe Bay. That only cost me $75, and the air freight company did a fantastic job of being careful with the velvet. Knight's taxidermy picked it up for us at the freight terminal in Anchorage, and did a European mount with the velvet preserved. Not a monster, but it was my son's first caribou so we wanted to mount it for him.

    Thanks so much!
