Just a heads up for any of you guy who are planning a 2008 hunt into WACH out of Kotzebue. We are very busy right now finishing up the trip planning and bookings for the 08 hunting season. I am working with 3 local flight services and they are almost at max for 08 hunts. One of the pilots told me that he is not taking any more mid Sept hunts
(Sept 10-20) as he is booked solid. We had Buck Maxon of Arctic Air Guides retire last fall and that takes 3 planes out of the mix thus making it much tighter this year. My advice to you is get your plans finalized ASAP as I will begin having a hard time finding pilots with the 3 weeks.
There will be some out or region transporters who will have flat rate hunts (drops) but they tend to be a little more expensive and you have fewer options in that type of hunt. Its decision time, so drop me a line if you are still trying to make decisions.
