Mossie ...

This hunt is scheduled for 7 days. We fly in on Monday in a Beaver and hike up to set up camp. Usually 6 to 8 hours to the upper camp. We will make it by dark. The pick up is always tentative and is set for afternoon of the 11th. We can go over a couple days if needed. I take in extra food. That also in insurence if we are weathered in past the pick up day. I take a Globalstar phone and stay in touch. If we tag early we can bail early also and come back to town and kill some fish.

Then it's anothe Goat hunt on Aug 20th for a 10 day hunt. Sept is more Goat black Bear and Blacktail Deer. Early Oct is Blacktail and Brown (grizz) later in Oct. Nov is Blacktail rut.

Probably close to 60 days in a tent and in raingear!!!

Then it's off to Az for that Elk tag I drew.

We did good on our spring hunts. I was able to work up a partial page.

The globalstar phone works very good. I had the iridium at first (before globalstar was up) but switched when iridium went under. Got into globalstar for very reasonable with the iridium by back and the globalstar promotions to pickup iridium customers. I like the GS unit better and the connection is much clearer than IR used to be. Also I like the cell phone feature (which IR does not have). When up on top of the Goat mountain the unit locks in on my cell system sometimes. The Misty Fjords used to be the black hole of communications. Not any more.

Sounds like the 1/4 mile set back has not made a difference. I guided out of Happy Valley one season. For Troutman up the Ivashak. A different world. I miss it. The Artic draws you.

I have a Goat hunt out of Hyder that you can drive to and meet me there. It cuts the cost of a charter flight and that reduces the rate I have to charge somewhat.
