Kodiak AK—Sitka Blacktail
« on: August 08, 2020, 06:30:47 AM »
Wow.

What a trip.  I’m currently still sitting in a hotel in Kodiak waiting to head out for a day fishing...but in the meantime...

I’ll eventually have the full story up (probably on my blog), and I won’t steal Adam or Scott’s thunder with their own bucks...

But I couldn’t have scripted this any different!

Excellent video. Big body on that one and my sound wouldn't work but it looked like a shockwave on its body from the bullet impact? Great hunt for you guys!

Congrats on an awesome adventure.  The fish harvest alone would be worth it!  Looks like the Nosler came thru.

Awesome!  That was on my radar for this August but didn't know how things would go through given the quarantine in AK and all.  Glad to see you made it work out - looks like a blast!!!
