WILL BE GOING TO THE AIRPORT THIS A.M. FOR A NOON FLIGHT, BROWNSVILLE-HOUSTON-SEATTLE-ANCHORAGE. I GET TO ANCHORAGE LATE SO I WILL OVERNIGHT THERE, BUT SHUD STILL GET TO HUNT SATURDAY EVENING.

LAST MINUTE ISSUE LAST NIGHT AS I WAS PACKING MY CARRY ON/FIELD BACK PACK. INSTEAD OF STRAPPING A LIGHT JACKET TO THE OUTSIDE I STUFFED IT IN THE PACK AND HAD SOME ZIPPER SEPARATION. A VERY NICE B/P THAT I GOT IN THE ARCHERY SECTION AT A CABELA'S STORE. THE ZIPPER STILL WORKED BUT IT WAS BUGGING ME, SO I CHANGED OVER TO A REAL B/P, AN EBERLESTOCK "JUST ONE" B/P THAT I USED ON A FALL BROWN BEAR HUNT SOME YEARS BACK. THE JUST ONE IS BIGGER, BETTER, HEAVIER DUTY, AND ABSOLUTELY MANY TIMES BETTER IN WET CONDITIONS.

Good luck,.....eberlestock is the way to go for rough, tough, ready for stuff hunting. A bit heavier than some of the newer lightweight stuff but an awesome product.

Yup, good equipment is always cheaper in the long run.....that's why cast bullets rule! Don't start on me boys, I'm just joking.
Rey, I hope you whack the biggest Black Bear up there!
