Two Sitka hunters sustained serious injuries Tuesday evening (12-17-13), after their boat struck a cliff in Kakul Narrows, about 25 miles north of town.

37-year old Mitch McGraw and 34-year old Nick Galanin were returning from a hunting trip in Peril Strait at dusk when their aluminum boat ran aground while traveling at high speed.

The ground was not a beach, however. It was a sheer cliff face.

Both men were knocked unconscious. When Galanin came to, he summoned help and began to steer the boat south toward Sitka. McGraw also revived, and was able to assist.
