deer hunting with cast
« on: November 09, 2020, 07:33:03 PM »
hi guys...

not sure if anybody has ever seen a SE Alaska buck... they are not like lower 48 deer or even Columbia black tails. they are Sitka Blacktail deer. small bodied, and very small antlered. the deer I killed today is considered large for here. one look at the muzzle and eyes will show you that the deer was very mature. it is the largest deer i have taken this year and for several years.. they are ghosts at times due to the dense nature of the brush here. 






i killed him this morning with a shot through both lungs at about 95 yards. he ran about 30 yards and fell over dead. thank you Lord...

AG.

That's a beautiful buck Mark! Nice shot too.

I saw these little guys, on a TV show on Netflix called "Meat Eater". The guy was hunting on your island. I got all excited and was yelling at my wife, "That's where Mark lives!!!" She thought I was crazy! LOL!!!

Nice buck, Mark! I saw one of those Alaska TV shows where the guys were hunting Sitkas. Very challenging, given the terrain...

That's really cool. I had wondered if you had met him, given how small the island is.
