I was not hunting but mountain climbing in Alaska in 1976. I spent 14 weeks packing in and out while climbing MT. Mckinley
14 weeks?? What did you walk in from Talkeetna? I traversed it in 24 days; flew in from Talkeetna to Kahiltna glacier, climbed the west buttress, then descended the north side and walked out to Wonder Lake and caught the bus back to the park entrance.
