A last few pictures from our elk hunt. Jim the skipper of the boat gave me the pictures from his camera. I loved his 'wheelhouse' view. He really is an amazing skipper and it is quite incredible how he can nose the big boat up to the shore so that we can clamber on up over the bow and on to the boat. Even more amazing that he has the wherewithal to take some pictures while he is doing it!
But one day the Alaska State Troopers saved him the job. They went in and picked up the party for us. Of course they also checked hunting licenses, permits, elk meat etc. No one got arrested and the troopers were kind enough to bring them back to the boat. According to the troopers we were the only hunters in the area opening week. Patrick
