From Instagram to inReach there’s a lot out there to help us scout and share, but it’s not always a good thing.
Ketchikan resident Ryan John talks about the lead up to his first bow hunt success – a blacktail buck in the alpine. We talk gear, when alpine season ends, and the value of research.
Bear at 10 yards, I knock an arrow and go through my checklist of what to do, not from experience because I’ve only taken 1 deer with my bow, but from videos and research. I made the right call. On the drive back in from the hunt, I talk about the importance of practice and…

Three buddies from California and I recap their hunting trip to the Ketchikan area for Unit 1 Sitka Blacktail. Cody and I took bucks within two minutes of each other in the same bowl on a mountain…and how did Jake get 56 bug bites on one wrist?
