After Brent and I formed AAA Alaskan Outfitters in December of 1983, our first order of business was to obtain hunting areas. We were thinking of Cold Bay and the Wrangell Mountains. Steve Black had let Brent use his Cold Bay area the fall of ’83 and Brent was working with him to possibly transfer that area to AAA. Both Brent and I had flown into the Wrangell’s with Ken Bunch to hunt Dall sheep. We decided since I was more familiar with Ken, I should be the one to contact him to see if he was interested in selling his area. Ken’s area in the Wrangell’s had a great sheep population, good goat and moose numbers and we could also hunt grizzly. It was a great hunting area.
