    Default Brooks Caribou Hunt with Mike McCray

    I thought I would post some picture from the caribou hunts I have been on the last couple of years with Mike. We have had some geat trips and harvested a couple nice animals. The first trip we were in them from the time we got there till we left, only had to hunt a couple days and we filled out.

    A nice river crossing, of course about two inches deeper than my boots... Big Corey cooking breakfast, about five minutes before we gave chase to a nice bull, we didn't catch up to the caribou and we burned the piss out of breakfast.... Good time thou

    Is it possibly McCrary, with 2 r's?

    If so, he does a great job. Flown with him many times over many years. A class act.

    I've been pretty good friends with mike for awhile, I don't know if he'll be flying up there next year or not. I don't even know the status of his plane or what happened. If I get any info, I'll keep you posted.

    Mike treated me and H_I_L_L_B_I_L_L_Y great this fall. Hope he gets everything worked out and can resume his business.

    I had breakfast with Mike at Peggys. Mike had an exclusive agreement with the Native Corp on the Ak. Peninsula. After booking many thousands of dollars in hunts, the corp pulled the agreement and signed with a (nonres?) guide. Mike has sold everything, including the planes, Naknek base camp etc to pay back all of the deposits. All but one is repaid and he is working with that guy.

    It's a sad deal for an honerable guy that loves to put hunters on the hunting grounds. He is just trying to stay afloat now.
