First I have seen of this! Like my old day used to say, a day late and a dollar short!, That's me all over. Oh well, Anchorage is some distance. Was there once in the late 60's in the winter, when our plane couldn't land in Sitka for all the snow, we ended up going to Juneau, Yakutat and wound up in Anchorage and hoteled up for the night and flew back to Sitka the next day, all on Alaska Airlines dime. Sorry I missed it, sounds like a literal blast!

I'm saying we take us a trip next May Tim! If nothing else to rub elbows with some of Alaska's finest gents and drool over stuff we don't have! Looks like a fine way to spend a day!
Wonder if spring bear is open then? Hmmm
Cheers,
Cody

Don't know the dates of the spring bear season but can guarantee you will have a good time. Buy your ticket in January. I did last time and Pensacola to Anchorage was cheaper than Pensacola to Little Rock in the summer time!!!

I am pretty sure I didn't see one of those last time I was there.

It's too early for me right now, but I think I paid $444 last time from PNS to O'hare to ANC! Almost the same distance as PNS to London Heathrow!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
