      I’m interested in doing a d.i.y. elk hunt on afognak island and was looking any kind of info or tips I can get.I have found alot of info on the ak.f&g web site but was hoping to talk to someone who had done it.

      Won’t be many around who’ve done that hunt. I do know the elk on Afognak and Raspberry islands are Roosevelt’s transplanted there a few decades ago and, not unlike coastal brown bears, they have propsered in that food-rich habitat and although the antlers won’t likely break any records, this is the home of many thousand-pound bulls and bigger, likely the biggest-bodied elk in the world. Bring a good meat pack!
