Re: Back from a good trip

Ian,

I am sure glad you liked AK! AK is a place you either love or hate. I go through a love/hate relationship with it! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

It sounds llike you had a spectacular trip. There are some real proffesionals here (in the true sense of the term) There are some real duds too, but it sounds like you hooked up with the right pilots and guides.

As the guides you were with prefer the m70 for bears, most bear guides up here do and for the very reason you describe. The 700 is great untill you are feeding it with more than the ussual amount of exertion! Then they can become a problem. Next year for my guiding repetwar, I will also be using a m70 in 375 H&H "AK guide rifle"

I am glad to hear you had a chance to eat some CR slamon! It is among the finest in the world! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Many time and more times than not Alaskans including myself occasionaly take what we have here for granted. Then, at least my enthusiasm is boosted when I hear of persons such as yourself and what a great time you had.

Regards!

PS, please send pics soon!

M,
I was also impressed with the fact that Alaskan's really resent the earth-bunnies from California and Colorado telling them how to run their state's resources. The fellows I met had no use for that kind of tourist, but they sure welcomed most visitors.
There is a certain sandbar on the Copper that the earth-bunnies will not get to finish their first group sing-song of Cumbiyau without some big furry intervention, because we left some rather tasty carcasses on it [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I shot 502 digital images and 15 rolls of 35m on this trip, hope to get one or two keepers. Haven't had time to take the film in for processing, that is a next week job.

Believe that you would enjoy that hunt as well as the photo opportunities - lots of wild critters and nice light.

M,
Thank you for the kind words. You Alaskans have a wonderful state. I was hunting with an outfitter and guide from Palmer (Wayne Woods Outfitting, guide was Blake Tranmoe. I believe that we hit the peak of the rut, maybe that is why we got such big bears.
