As I sat in Dutch Harbor on business without my luggage the last couple days, as did several other passengers that came out here, it got me thinking about folks that fly to rural Alaska for hunts. My main thought are those individuals that fly out to meet a guide on a specific date. Obviously the guide is under strict time constraints, especially if they have other clients to take out after your hunt is done. So my question is - what do you folks do to ensure that your guns and gear arrive on time? Ship ahead by mail or other parcel service? Or do you rely on the airline company to get your stuff there with you? Any stories of mishaps where things went south because your stuff did not arrive?
