Re: Images from Kodiak AK

Yes, I brought home one deer. The limit is three but the population was so low we decided to shoot one each. We only shot the boys and left the girls to reproduce. My family really enjoys the venison. It's much better than moose and almost as tasty as Dall's Sheep.

Walking the bear t...

Re: Images from Kodiak AK

Richard:

Great photos. Thank you! Glad you were able to see some bears. I think I recognize the high sandy bank in the third photo (a deep eddy lies at the downstream end).

Re: AK XF20

Hi Don: I would rate the Zolotone as a non-skid surface (better than regular paint only) but I don't think is matches a true non-skid product. In other words.....
