Winter 2009: Successful Deer Hunting Trip in Southeast Alaska...

Winter 2009:


Credits to my Husband for taking his camera 
along during his and a friend's recent 
hunting trip in Southeast Alaska...

Max sighting in his rifle at the Juneau Rifle Range
prior to this Southeast Alaska deer hunting trip...

A small doe on the beach they chased into the woods 
because they didn't want someone else to shoot the poor thing...

They're going in to chase the same doe off the beach...

The new *Realtree Spruce Camo/Headlight Hat Combo*...(for more information on this new product, contact Randy or Max ~ believe it or not...it's their own design)....

Max's good friend and hunting partner Randy...

Just heading into one of their *Top Secret* deer hunting locations...

Believe it or not ~ Max was knocking a bear bread fungus off of a tree for his Dad to paint a deer on when this buck snorted at him...all was said and done; that is where he fell...

Max was dragging the buck out when he met Randy in a meadow...Randy said, "I'll drag it out for you; keep hunting!"...

So, this was the next buck Max came upon...he said, "I was very lucky!"...

Same second buck ~ heading down to the beach...

Bucks loaded up heading back to camp...

Look at how clear the water is...you can see the rocks on the bottom...

Randy steering them back to camp...it was colder out than it looks...

Max was talking to their buddy Dave on the radio...

An eagle they happened upon...

Two bucks in the four-wheeler cart - ready for transport to the hanging shed...

Beautiful waterfall...

Survival gear that they leave on the beach when they go hunting just in case they get stuck...

600' of ground line they used for attaching to an anchor with a 40 lb. cannon ball attached to a pully to pull the skiff in/out with...


Sea lions frolicking...

Sea lions still having fun in the winter waters...
1 of 11 deer they called up using the *deer call* their last two days in the woods...

Another big doe coming to the call...darn it!...

They were being charged by 3 deer at once...
Close encounter...Randy actually had this fawn sniff his hand and touch his glove; Max had a doe on the other side 3-4' away doing the same thing ~ it's a *Bambi*...

Another buck down...

Max says, "This one measured about 25 inches; not a monster, but still pretty nice"...


Randy with a nice buck...this one was shot right next to a *buck rub*...

Max says, "Nice Rack?" ~ or ~ "Nice Tongue?"...


Heading back to camp...Randy coiling the rope...

Alaska Seaplanes on approach...




Randy checking in from camp giving a *Full Report*...



Max and Randy's good friend Dave who has been kind enough to let them stay at his awesome place over the years...

Max with Dave at the meat shed ~ bucks hanging!...






Southeast Alaska ravens hanging out around the campfire just staying warm ~ end of the hunting trip...more next year ~ we hope!

  1. I am so happy we now have venison for this winter, and that both hunters had a successful trip, including that they made it safely home!!!
