Just off a bush plane in Thorne Bay, AK. Too tired to type. Will try to find a good wi-fi (too long to type on a phone) over the next day to write up the entire story. It is one of the finest adventures we've ever had.

For now, a pic will have to suffice. If you know about Sitka Blacktails, you will appreciate this buck. If you have never researched or dreamed of hunting them, this will cause nothing more than a "meh" response.

Big thanks to my "old school buddy," JB. And to an ass-busting camera guy like Tyler.

Good Grief, that's bigger than any mule deer I've killed. Congrats Fin.

That is an outstanding Sitka blacktail, and I see one of the best chasers of Sitkas over your right shoulder. Looking forward to the story.

So happy for you and the crew Randy! I know how excited you were for this hunt. Should be a good story I'm sure. No road hunting there.
