    Like always, great video. I have always considered Kodiak as float plane country (although my experience is limited to a few hunts). Do you find there are many wheel landing opportunities around the island?

    Was the first sequence of shots over at Uganik Bay?? It looked familiar, I lived there for a couple years back in the 70's.

    I've hunted one of those lakes in the vid.. and that's all I'm sayin' and you answered my question if you could land at a certain place I've been to.

    Very cool. More places for me to play after I run out in the Kenai, Aleutian and Alaska Range. ;-)

    Thanks for posting. Can't wait to get up there next year.

    Lots of beaches to land on if you pay attention to the tide and plenty of gravel bars. I'd say there are a fair amount of landing opportunities higher up, but plenty of places that look good are not when you get down low and have a closer look. Lots of rough terrain and plenty of turbulence make it interesting.

    Yes, that was Sally Island in the Northeast Arm of Uganik Bay. You can see the old cannery there. The gravel bar landings were both on the lower part of the Uganik river and there is also a quick shot of the head of the East Arm of Uganik Bay (Mush Bay.)

    It was a fun couple years out there, I climbed up behind the cannery a few times, lots of bears, ptarmigan, and fun sliding down the grass slopes. I went out to Noisy Island, and slept the night a few times while seal hunting. A good butter clam bed between the Islands across from the cannery. Thank you for the memories. Gerberman
