Often heralded as Alaska's "best kept secret," Prince of Wales Island's Thorne Bay Lodge offers saltwater fishing, river fishing, and hunting opportunities sure to make even the most well-versed outdoorsman happy.

Located on Alaska's Prince of Wales Island (the third biggest island in the United States), Thorne Bay Lodge is a hunter's and fisherman's dream destination. The lodge is nestled in the forested hills covering the island and is only a hop, skip, and jump away from the water. In fact, visitors to the area must take either a 30 minute float plane ride or a 3 hour ferry ride to reach the island. The folks from Thorne Bay Lodge pick you up at the dock.

Thorne Bay Lodge acts as a homey and comfortable base camp for those wishing to explore the island's many opportunities for outdoor adventure. At the heart of the lodge's many offerings are saltwater fishing, river fishing, and hunting opportunities that are available as both guided or self-guided outings.

River fishing on Prince of Wales Island is unlike fishing anywhere else. Thousands of streams are fed by 8

You placed the shot almost perfectly, but your award-winning buck just bolted into the thicket. What do you do? It doesn’t matter how great of a shot you are if you can’t follow a deer’s trail. The best way to become a great tracker is to have the right metal framework during a hunt. Most hunters learn to track over years of experience, but knowing what to look for and having the proper equipment is often the difference between a winter with venison or without.

Before getting into the specifics of tracking, the following equipment works best:
• A lantern and waterproof matches: Flashlights can make blood trails look washed out and difficult to follow. A lantern’s ambient light causes blood to shimmer, making the trail easy to follow. Put tin foil on one side to protect your eyes, and blow out the flame out once you find the deer. A hot lantern isn’t fun to carry along with a buck.
• Flashlight and batteries: Carry these in case your lantern doesn’t work and for use after you’ve located the buck.
• Reflective trail marker: Used to mark the first hit location.

When going hunting, you have plenty of gear to think about from your rifle and decoys, to a proper layering system to stay warm. One important piece of equipment you should consider is your cell phone. Is it worth bringing, or will it only cause problems?

Why You Should Bring Your Cell Phone

A cell phone is worth bringing on the hunt mostly due to its personal safety value. Should you become injured, an emergency call can be life saving. It's also a great way to regroup with a hunting buddy should you become separated for any reason. Due to the safety value of cell phones, there's no good excuse not to take a mobile phone when venturing into the woods for any reason.

A cell phone is also great for taking pictures of tracks and animals. One of the thrills of hunting, beyond making a kill or spotting a buck, is the amount of wildlife you get to see in its natural habitat. Having photos of tracks and animals to reference when teaching others hunting and tracking technique is worthwhile.

Also, few people see more wildlife than hunters and a cell phone is a
