This trip started along time before we hit the water. Two members of the hunting party researched the drainage and decided on the dates as well as planning for the air taxi service. All this had to be done months in advance. I was invited along and brought both equipment and some experience. We invested in a pre hunt over flight of the area to both look for river hazards as well as likely hunting spots.
This drainage is heavily hunted and we knew that we had to hunt an area instead of float hunting. Here is a few photos of our gear as we start our hunt. We all are eager to start our adventure.
We had a father and son, his friend and myself. Ages 55, 30, 21 and myself 44.
After many hours of planning and preparation we are on the water at last.
