Default Opening Day tomorrow, August 1 !!!

Sitka Blacktails. Not the biggest deer, but very wily and crafty. It's bucks-only until September 15, and all year on the mainland. The islands get to hunt does after that date. Truthfully, I'm an eastern whitetail guy and haven't gotten a blacktail since I've moved to Alaska, but for two reasons: time, and I like to "hunt" -- the folks here like to "shoot". Most of them wait until winter sets in and the snows drive the deer to the beaches. That's just shooting to me, not hunting, and I've refused to follow that method. Where's the adventure?

Anyway, I have to work tomorrow but each weekend I'll be doing the "nice hike with a rifle" thingie.....
