    Default 40 mile air

    I would recommend that you call Leif at 40 mile air in tok TODAY. He will be booked up by the end of next week. I believe his going rate is about $900 for anywhere in the tok management area. He only puts one group in an area at a time. He will not put you where there are no sheep.

    Dennis is correct. Do not count out Jim Cummings at Golden Eagle or Gary Hall at M&M, both in Delta especially if you are looking at the western TMA or DS203/204. We used Gary on my successful DS203 hunt in 2006, but Jim was taking folks into the same strip also.

    I drew DS103 also. We're booked with 40 mile. I'd like to here others expierence with this hunt. I have heard the sheep numbers are down in the TMA?

    The best advice I can give you is, if you have waited as long as you have for a TMA tag, be willing to pay the going rate for a great drop off point (and voice this to the Air Charter)! A couple buds drew the TMA 2 seasons ago and found out the hard way that paying a little bit more for a better drop off point sometimes pays off. They were both unsuccessful and did not see any legal rams that were attainable, and they took the cheapest way in.

    Default do it yourselfers

    I ve spent most of my hunts with family and has made it even more special. I never took anything nice until I started passing up the regular. I put a couple photos on my album today of our grocery list. DS204, DG353,DM828 on tap for 2009. Not sure what the economy is going to do this year but I cant think of a better way to go broke then hunting and fishin!

    Default Amen

    I would rather pay for air taxi-or-avgas over ranch beef anyday.
