In 1984 esteemed author/hunter Christopher Batin visited Alderwood Retreat, as it was then known, in order to go hunting for Sitka Blacktail deer with owner / transporter, Stan Duncan. He was accompanied by Gary & Ken Schoenig, and all three of the fellas harvested big, beautiful bucks during their hunt. Chris wrote the article shown below just in time to guide readers towards Kodiak Island for memory-making deer hunts.
This was a Collector's Edition special issue, of which Stan & Alderwood warranted a 10 page spread AND the cover, so please enjoy this historical documentation of some great Sitka Blacktail deer hunting on the world-renowned Kodiak Island!
