Reputable air charters out of King Salmon & Dillingham
Planning a drop hunt or float hunt in Unit 9 or Unit 17, mainly aimed at brown bear. What are the reputable air charters who work out of King Salmon, Dillingham, or other base villages in those units?
For either hunt, float or drop, by far your best bet is Rick Grant. He has flown that neck of the woods for decades, knows every nook and cranny, lake, pond and river, the best places to hunt, etc. I know him because I flew for for the Royal Coachman Lodge north of Dillingham for two seasons during '96 and '97. I crossed paths with him many times and he is an exceptional pilot. His operation is a one-pilot operation with his DeHavilland Beaver on floats. http://www.tikchikairventures.com/
Give Sam Egli a call at Egli Air Haul, he flies both airplanes and helicopters. With it being April, chances are he is all booked up already. He is in King Salmon.
