    Upper Chena 2016

    Time to start the yearly thread for updates. Here's my most recent observation: Drove to Rosehip Sunday afternoon for a picnic on the gravel bar (that was not submerged). The water level was nice but I did not see a single grayling rising.

    Hunting after the Funny River Fire?

    For my buddy 4mer For my buddy 4mer This image was captured June 5. You can see the areas that got scorched and those that didn't. It got pretty hot when the fire made the initial run to the lake, then it was less intense as it smoldered along to the east.

    The official Unit 13 caribou thread. (2013-2014)

    There's nothing I hate worse than a sidetracked thread. Gentlemen, please remember that most of Unit 13 is yeti country. These creatures do not hibernate and will eat you as quickly in winter as any other time.

    Question about registration/confiscation

    For the sake of argument, suppose a national gun registry was created and then subsequently a law was passed that guns were going to be illegal. (I'm trying to keep from getting bogged down with specifics, and I don't have 120 specifically-named firearms in mind). Anyway, the guns are illegal...
