This sounds promising! Got someone running video? There's nothing I've found to be as unnerving as griz up close.

Hopefully Tim chimes in. He saw I was here and called me about 30 minutes after I landed. He told me that the new #4 inland grizz was thwacked yesterday in Unit 20. The bears are hungry and breeding season is in full swing! Tim took me to dinner last time I was here before my Mountain Goat hunt...……..awesome TBHers everywhere!!!

Hey guys, just had breakfast and waiting on Glenn, our first flight is at 9:40 a.m. The weather is beautiful at 45 degrees and extra sunny. No telling what it will be 5 hours from now but it is all part of the adventure!

Update: on wifi at our charter flight....Ryan Air......next door to RAVN air.......lol!!! No cell service on AT&T, but got wifi as a backup. Glenn's gun made it but his gear did not. Next flight with his gear is 23 hours from now. Charter flight has been moved to 3:30 pm tomorrow......possibly......yep possibly. Otherwise Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. Stayed tuned as all this materializes s-l-o-w-l-y!!!

These delays are seriously eating into my hunting days......flight back on the 6th! Guess, I can extend this adventure 2 or 3 days. Oh, the charter will land on a gravel runway in Flat, Ak. It is a ghost town now but was a goldmine town for decades. Hunting starts about 3 miles from Flat, Ak.

I had to laugh, I did a quick GoogleEarth lookup of Flat then clicked on the Wikipedia link. Per 2000 census, 4 people live in Flat. One of only 6 places in the USA with a population of 4.

The white yarn is Aniak. To the right a few inches is Flat, Ak.

Wow! This cargo plane just landed it is packed with supplies and mail that eventually gets distributed all over the region......and guess who gets to geaux on a 2 hour delivery route with the Cessna pilot....lol!!! Better than sitting around here for sure.
We are off to the wild blue yonder, incredible aeronautical logistical plans! Kuskoquinn(?) River.....Jos Block, Crooked Creek, Red Devil next stop, and then onward to Sleetmute . It has a old Russian style church.Attachment 958565Name:  20190528_154206.jpg
