  1. Great post! That bathroom mess made me chuckle.

    Lower Black River

    I went last year in July and swore off ever going during the monsoon again. The roads were a mess and the water was high and muddy. I also worried the whole time that a storm was gonna come in and flash flood the river and make the roads worse than they already were. Fishing was not great either compared to the month before. I didnt get to go this summer because of the closure before the monsoon. Im planning a trip once the monsoon winds down a little more.

    Lets See Them Kids

    Its been 10 years since I last posted in this thread. Time for some updated pics.
  5. My son shot a deer this last season at around 11am. We boned it out and hiked back to camp. The next evening we went by the kill site and there was not a piece of flesh anywhere. Bones were picked completely clean. There was bird sh!t everywhere so I assumed it was mostly from them and they didnt waist anytime. Granted thats not a carcass with full hide etc but it went quick. Ive also found human remains in the desert on several occasions some very recent deaths and others that were just sun bleached bones. I can attest that the summer heat seems to expedite the process.

    Backpacking on a budget

    I agree with others just take what you got and go for an over-nighter. I still laugh at the gear I took 20 years ago on some of my early trips. (Cans of Dinty Moore heavy weight military sleeping bags etc). Made some great memories In the backcountry though that wouldnt have happened otherwise. I still dont have the best gear but I take what I got and make it work. Ive taken my kids with me and thats a great experience too. Ive noticed they dont care about comfort near as much as I do, but they are always hungry. Bottom line is dont overthink it. You dont need the best of the best, however the lighter you are the farther you can go. I am raising some pack goats now so that will be a game changer for me.

    Alaska Trip Help (updated with trip report pics)

    Well I finally made some solid plans. Spent way more than I wanted to but as most people already mentioned Alaska is really expensive. I booked a diy flyout trip on the Stuyahok river. Pilot is going to drop me and my son and maybe a buddy and then pick us up down river 6 days later. Thanks for the responses. Any other advice is still welcome. I need to start shopping for a bear gun. Does anyone have Ruger Alaskan they want to sell? Im thinking 454 Casull.

    ISE Hunting expo

    I took the kids to the ISE show today and we had a pretty good time. Kids all enjoyed it. Lots of things I wish I could afford.
