SE Alaska Sitka Blacktail

Moving to Alaska for a Summer Job with Fish and Game for the next 3months. Was going back and forth if I wanted to try to squeeze in hunt in and figured "Hey if I am getting the opportunity to live in Alaska might as well make (and spend$) the most of it.

Being the only hunter I know, figure I'd look here and see if anyone was also looking to make last minute decisions going to hunt Alaska Unit 6D PWS. I am looking at Hawkins, Hitchinbrook, and Montague Islands. Drop off Camp Late August Early September. If you had your hunting partner or group cancel on you and were thinking, outfitter, float plane, cabins, DIY, whatever and needed another guy that makes rash decisions(and splits cost) I am the guy. I am just looking at making the most of the experience I am blessed at having.

Regardless of what happens, if anyone is looking for a person or if I am going to spend my days looking for locals who want to take a good ole WI Boy out, I will use this thread if that's alright for pictures and what not....might need to change where the category is if it becomes a lot of fish.

If anyone has any gear recommendations or advice from their first SE experience that would be extremely helpful. I have been browsing a lot of threads and trying to soak information.

BTW another selling point is I will be around game biologists and locals a decent amount of time I should be able to gather a good amount information, I just don't think Alaska is something you try to tackle alone hunting wise.

Thanks for reading my incoherent rant. Have a good one and thanks in advance if you have any advice.
