Overall Impression: Challenging for a bowhunter but he put us in good country

Jack Lechner runs Cub Air and provided us with float plane transportation into the Alaskan alpine on Kodiak Island for a early season bowhunt for Sitka Blacktail deer. My brother (compound) and I (longbow) each tagged two P&Y caliber animals, with three of those grossing in the 90"+ range. The hunting was very challenging given our modest shooting limitations combined with the treeless terrain where we found the deer in early August. We made the most of our opportunities and were put in great country by Jack, who is a true gentleman and fine sportsman. Saw some brown bears, but nothing close enough to get nervous about. We hunted about 5-6 days if I recall, and pulled out a little early due to having taken two good bucks each and possibility of poor weather moving in. I wrote an article about the hunt for the Aug.-Sept. 06 issue of Traditional Bowhunter Magazine.
