    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    Paul is a big help when theres work to be done , meat to pack, Tundra to walk and loooooooooong days to enjoy.

    My whole family enjoyed his stay, and you wont regret the help when its time to "git 'er done"

    loads of meat can you carry in one day? I may have a spot for you on a moose hunt.

    Default sheep hunt

    I've been looking for someone to do a fly in sheep hunt with. I have everything lined up already, but the guy I was supposed to go with couldn't end up going. The air taxi won't fly me in solo, so I'm looking for someone to go. The hunt is in the north Wrangells. Price is $1250 for the round trip flight. Timeframe is 9-18 Aug.

    Let me know if you're interested in that.

    If you are ever in the Wrangell area give a shout. No need to realy plan a hunt here,just drive a mile step off the road and start hunting.

    Co4hoosier,

    Why won't the air taxi fly you solo???? the main requirement is an Iridium Phone. Unless you are flying a bigger plane where its not feasable for the carrier to fly one single hunter out, find someone with a super cub, most of them only carry one anyway.

    Cool First Hunt?

    Wow:

    The idea of taking an untested “friend” on his first hunt sounds like a mess to me! Hunting is something you learn over time and the work that goes into an Alaskan hunt can be overwhelming for a first timer. I have taken good friends from the lower 48 who are experienced hunters and they are great for about 24 hours and then the moaning and groaning begins!

    Opt for an easy caribou or a moderate moose hunt before you jump into a sheep hunt. Man that could be a mess!

    Good luck and you better get in shape and have good gear!

    Kind of jumping to conclusions aren't you? How do you know how much experience he has? He's not going "hunting", he's tagging along taking notes and helping where it's needed.

    Default some information

    I realise Northwestalska's need for caution and appreciate your open approach AkHunter45.

    As some guidance on my hunt history I was on three sports hunts and spent 2 weeks with natives hunting in '06 & I have just returned from 6 weeks living and going on hunts with Inupat in Arctic Alaska.

    I am happy to supply further details on these hunts and on my academic perspective once a relationship begins with a hunter, who I will always meet before I ask them to take me on their trip.

    I think folks are mixing up cO4's post with PMAC starting post. If PMAC got a thumbs up from Strangerinastrangeland he should be fit enough for anyone that owns a computer

    No worrys

    Paul is in shape, has proper gear, is camp wize, patient, keeps up with the hunt, reacts horribly to misquitos, can cook edible foods and keep everyone in the boat laughing......and ~~LOL!!~~speaks fairly good English for an Irishman...

    If it gets REALLY bad, he can dig a decent grave.....

    Default Hunter's feelings

    I'm researching the feelings of the hunters themselves, as they seek, stalk and possibly kill game. Also interested in hunting and family life and other hunt-related matters such as how skills are learned. I'm presently in Anchorage.
