GEORGE HAS 3 BAITS UP, RIVER#1, WHERE WE SAT SATURDAY NIGHT, RIVER#2 ABOUT A 1 1/2 MILES UP RIVER, AND GATES CREEK. TODAY WAS A WET DAY, MISERABLE TO BE OUTSIDE. WE WENT AND CHECKED GATES CREEK, AND IT HAD BEEN HIT, BUT THE STAND IS NOT UP THERE YET. OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE SAT, UNSUCCESSFULLY, MANY TIMES AT GATES CREEK. THEN WE WENT AND CHECKED RIVER#2. THE 4 WHEELER DRIVE TO GATES CREEK IS NOT TOO BAD ACROSS A SWAMPY AREA, BUT THE DRIVES TO THE RIVER BAITS ARE DOWN TIGHT, BRUSHY 4 WHEELER TRAILS, AND IF YOU ARE NOT ALERT YOU CAN GET WHACKED. RIVER#2 HAS NOT BEEN HIT YET, SO IT WAS BACK TO RIVER#1 FOR THE SUNDAY EVENING HUNT. ABOUT A MILE DOWN THE 4 WHEELER TRAIL TROUBLE.


OOOPS, A WHEEL ON THE TRAILER WE PULL WITH THE 4 WHEELER CAME OFF JUST AS WE CROSSED A STREAM. WE LOADED AS MUCH AS WE COULD ON THE 4 WHEELER SO GEORGE COULD GO BACK TO THE VEHICLE, UNLOAD, AND LOOK FOR A PIPE OR LOG OR SOMETHING WE COULD USE TO GET THE TRAILER BACK TO THE VEHICLE. NEEDLESS TO SAY THE EVENING HUNT WAS CANCELLED (MAYBE NOT TOO BAD BECUSE IT WAS RAINING AND WE WERE IN FOR A MISERABLE SIT). IT TOOK GEORGE A WHILE TO GET BACK BECAUSE A MOTOR VEHICLE DROVE A WAYS DOWN THE 4 WHEELER PATH AND PARKED WHILE SOME GUY KNOCKED OFF A PIECE OF ASS. MEANWHILE I AM AT THE TRAILER GETTING RAINED ON. FINALLY GEORGE GETS BACK AND WE TIE A 2x4 TO THE TRAILER AND MAKE IT BACK TO HIS MOTOR VEHICLE. LUCLILY THE REPAIR GUY WAS AROUND AND WE TOOK THE TRAILER OVER TO HIM AND LEFT IT OFF. I AM EXPECTING THAT WE WILL BE HUNTING MONDAY NIGHT. ENJOYED SOME TASTY MOOSE STEAKS FOR SUPPER. HERE IS A PICTURE OF THE ALASKAN ENGINEERING USING THE 2x4.

Your turn will come, Rey. I've seen that kinda 'engineering' before.

Sounds to be an adventurous trip thus far.

Travois style used to work very well, and still does. at least it didn?t happen during the creek crossing.

MONDAY, MEMORIAL DAY, DAY 3: WENT TO A FRIEND OF GEORGE'S, JIM, AND BORROWED 2 4 WHEELERS WHILE GEORGE'S 4 WHEELER AND 4 WHEELER TRAILER GET FIXED. THE 3 OF US WENT TO THGE GATES CREEK BAIT TO PUT UP THE STAND, THE BAIT WAS HIT HARD THE NIGHT OF DAY 2 SO WE WENT BACK LATER, WERE SET UP BY 6:20 P.M. AND SAT UNTIL 11:45 P.M., BUT NOTHING CAME IN. IT WAS DRY BUT UNCOMFORTABLY COLD.

WHEN WE WENT TO GATES CREEK IN THE EARLY AFTERNOON TO SET UP THE STAND ALL 3 OF US WERE CARRYING IN A SHOULDER/CHEST STYLE RIG, GEORGE WAS CARRYING A 6 INCH FA 454 WITH SOME FA FACTORY 260gr AMMO, JIM WAS CARRYING A 4 INCH MODEL 29 LOADED WITH HORNADY FACTORY 180 GRAINERS, AND I WAS CARRYING MY LINEBAUGH RUGER REDHAWK 45 COLT WITH SOME 260gr WFN RELOADS. THIS IS GRIZZLY AND BLACK BEAR COUNTRY AND BEST TO BE PREPARED.

Good luck on your hunt and safe travels. What was the actual temperature there?

Any time it's wet, it's cold & when you are sitting still it can get really miserable. I've spent some miserable days that were 70 degrees in the mountains after getting wet...think hypothermia.
Hang in there Rey!!
