"Everybody's still kind of tired and busy," said captain Herbert Kinneeveauk, whose crew landed a 28-foot whale on April 22. Crews harvested two more small whales on Thursday and Friday, he said.
Whalers continued to paddle traditional sealskin boats Sunday in the frigid water between slabs of ice off Alaska's northwest coast in hopes of adding to the bounty.
"It was a happy time for Point Hope, and it's still a happy time. They got two more this past week," Kinneeveauk said.
The meat is divided among residents, and because Kinneeveauk's crew brought in the first bowhead, he gets to decide when the annual whale feast will be.
