My friend Gregg, who I served in Iraq with ask me if I would take him and his father on a Black bear hunt. I had shared with him my many adventures chasing Blackies out in PWS. I told them to be ready for rain and more rain. Well, I should have had them bring sunscreen. We had incredible weather, clear skies and light winds for most of our hunt. The fair weather also meant that many people were out also enjoying this spectacular spring and chasing bears as well. We ran out with flat seas and blue skies, we packed heavy and I was going to enjoy a HEAVY camp for a change, no MH this trip.
We dropped the shrimp pots on the way into camp and arrived at high tide and unloaded and got camp squared away. After a short nap we ran out and pulled some pots to get shrimp for dinner. We grilled up some steaks and added a basket of fresh shrimp to go with it.
After dinner we got our gear ready and hooked up the Jet Ranger and pulled it to the hunting area.
