More King Eiders

Another week produced more great hunts on St. Paul for King Eiders and other sea ducks including Harlequin, Long-tailed ducks and even a few scoters.  All of our hunters took home at least 3 King Eiders with most taking 4, which is the seasonal limit for non-residents of Alaska.  We had a couple of days where the weather kept us from boating, but most days we were able to get the guys out in the boats and hunt over decoys.  We would like to thank our hunters from this week for being great guys to hunt with and especially Scott McWatty for sharing the exceptional pictures he took while hunting with us.  Scott's photos really capture the beauty amid the harshness of this remote and unique part of Alaska.  We would also like to thank all of the hunters for staying positive as they hunted through some tough conditions- their determination and perseverance were rewarded and they all took home beautiful trophy Kings.
Capt. Moe and I want to thank Dustin and Michelle for their dedication and teamwork in making our inaugural season a banner year for everyone and a special thanks to Michelle for providing us with excellent meals to keep everyone fueled up and ready to go.


  1. I will never be able to thank you ALL (the entire AEO team) enough for your hard work and generosity! I am so grateful to have been a part of the inaugural season. There NEVER was a doubt in my mind that you all would be successful. Good things happen to good people!

    I'm so blessed to have not only had a great hunt, despite all the weather issues, but also to have made some lifelong friends!

    Thank you again! Take care and God Bless!
