Rules & Guidelines
What kind of boots should I wear? - Neoprene boots that are specifically designed for hiking and hunting. (Taller than average height 18" suggested for river crossings and wet grass). A pair of Muck boots or something similar is highly recommended. You can wear a pair of leather boots if you're tough, but they are going to get wet and never dry, and limit your options for fording rivers, stepping in the bay, and getting covered with fish slime on the boat. Breathable tennis shoes are great for wearing around the boat at night.
Should I bring waders? - Highly recommended for waterfowl hunting but can also be worn throughout the hunt to keep you warm and dry.
What rifle cartridge to bring? - 338 is great for bear hunting. Any classic deer cartridge from 243 on up is plenty of gun for harvesting a buck.
Should I bring a handgun? - Not necessary. You will be actively hunting when on land and have your hunting rifle with you at all time.
What distances are the shots ar these Sitka Blacktails? - Most of the terrain features vegetation with means shots in Southeast Alaska are close. Shots average will under 100-yards.
Is Sitka gear or KUIU worth the money? - If you can afford it, you should buy the best clothing you can afford. But the hunt is what you make of it no matter the price of your gear.
Are alcohol and soft drinks included? - Alcohol isn't included, but you can bring your own. There is a cooler on the boat that is full of soft drinks, water, and Gatorade that is included.

How many deer tags should I buy? - Non-residents can buy up to four licenses, and residents can get five. Recommend you get 2 depending on what you want from your hunt.
Should I buy a black bear or wolf license? - It is wise to discuss your options with Ken prior to purchasing your licenses as some can be transferred to other animals.
How is meat stored/processed on the boat? - The Serenity is outfitted with an aluminum shack on the back that stays cool and is a great place for hanging meat. A couple of fans plugged in can dry quarters overnight ready to be placed in one of the three available freezers.
Can I carry, ship home, or donate my meat? - Donations are always appreciated. Frozen meat can be offloaded from to boat freezers and hauled home as carry-on or checked luggage. Ken is also happy to assist you in shipping meat home.
How to get antlers home? - It can be wrapped and packed in checked luggage, or Ken has a known shipper number and can assist in shipping trophies, meat, and luggage through the cargo office.
What is the food like? - Dinners every night are booked by Steven and include halibut. moose steads. shepherd's pie, and king crab. Breakfasts are all you can eat scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, etc. Steven will pack sack lunches everyday with a big sandwich, and a bunch of granola/chocolate bars, and chips. There is always fresh coffee available on the boat and cold drinks in the cooler.
What are sleeping quarters like? - The Serenity has four bunks up front in the hull that are big enough for anybody. It's a fishing boat, which means you have a warm dry place to sleep but room is at a premium. The stateroom is two beds stacked on each other that are comfortable. Each bunk is outfitted with outlets for charging electrical devices.
