It’s bittersweet when a legal ram watches you land. It’s awesome that there are legal rams in the valley, not so awesome that they know you are there. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these guys through the spotting scope with the hunter.
I found a new spot to land. Should be some good caribou hunting.
Enjoying the view as always. Interesting fact … this lake did not exist just 10 years ago. I’ve watched it grow high in the Talkeetna Mountains this lake has appeared at the toe of an unnamed glacier.
Looking down onto the Matanuska Glacier.
A nice 39″ ram we pulled out today. His hunting partner also took a 38+ on opening morning.
A hunter testing the sat-phone before I depart. Iridium sat-phone service generally works really well, but this particular valley is so narrow and deep that satellites are not always within view. Hunters have struggled to make calls with consistency from this location.
Another hunter dropped high in the Talkeetna Mountains.
