    Yeah, it didn't work out for me last year. I did spend a couple of days out on the Denali Highway, but we were there a week or so too early. Kicking around the idea of skiing in for a hunt this year, but I'm not set on any plans.

    well we could put up the tent early( it is all out there... and make a spring of it.. barrle stove, cots and propane lights... you can carry you skis along on the wheeler till ya need them.. but not likely.

    Chip,

    I'm still looking to nail a spring bear episode, this last season didn't work out to well not that I didn't put in the time. I know we've talked a lot, perhaps I should stop messing around w/the surbuban crowd and head your way. I'll get a call into you. Best of holidays eh!

    Theres always something to hunt, Tdelarm Caribou right now.

    Whizzed past a herd on the trail, in the dark this evening, like 70 Mph past a bunch already going my way I bet it was quite the "Close encounter" to have a ride overtake and pass them~~LOL!!~~
    We have awsome riding for a while yet, but in Spring, it will be this way again.


    Female Caribou, Bears, Wolves, Geese...ahhhhh, yes, Springtime

    "Officially" down? But Winter hasn't even started yet. My calendar says we have another full month of Autumn left before Winter officially starts.
    Winter is Coming...
