They shot a grizzly?  :chuckle:

Hope they got a ram, it's got to be a huge relief to get one "early" and remove some of the pressure. There's no shame in getting skunked but going one for two is a success in anyone's book!

Awesome! Not a good week to be a legal ram in the brooks range with the Blanchardís stomping around.

Some of us have our own hunting as well.  :chuckle:

They found another band of rams but have been weathered out for days. It looks like it may break just in time to fly out later this week.

I spent August 1967 in Fairbanks.......under 4 feet of water.

You too huh. Spent the entire flood in our house right on the Chena. Fun times.

Ouch, here's to hoping one wanders into camp then, or the weather has a change of heart and gives them another chance.

I've met several people locally who were also there. I went up there to fight fire and we were based out on Airport Way. When the waters receded a bit, we would look at what went floating by......boats, canoes, collapsible canvas kayaks and a float plane or two.

Weather. One of the biggest things that you canít control.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

So true . I know 2 guys that did just what Carl and his brother are doing. 1 spent 9 days
In his tent because of rain / fog  . The other 13 days because of rain / fog / snow . Here's hoping these guys do better

I think the boys had another long night last night. Probably starting to head back to the lake sometime today.
