Sitka Alaska Hunting

Postby badandy970 » Wed Oct 13, 2010 10:13 pm

Well I went out again yesterday and finally took some pictures of some ducks. It was a great hunt, the hardest hunt I have ever done. I went solo on the salt water, weather was not very conducive but it worked. The wind was near hurricane force, freezing rain and being all by my self.

I have never seen ducks working so hard to get in the decoys. The Goldeneye's were coming in groups of 5-20. Had three or four groups Mergansers, and some other random ducks come in but I wanted to kill a limit of Goldeneye.

Once again the Strait Heat did it's job, in the extreme wind and the freezing rain it held great patterns.

Nicely done!

Which end of town were you? I made 9 trips to Sitka this summer for a job at the old sawmill (Sawmill Cove Industrial Park) and saw very few birds and wondered where a guy could get into some ducks (other than Swan Lake :lol3: ).

Looks like a blast. I've never been into the town, only the ferry dock, but there looks like a fair amount bays for productive spots around the narrows. Right on, time for me to go get some next week.
