I hooked up the pull behind brush cutter at my folks today. I like to cut entry and exit routes to my stands. I think I mentioned they have 'bird sanctuary' in the fields for a tax break. that's why they won't allow plots. man is that stuff thick and tall. 5-6' throughout. I had to use 4WD just to push through it or I just spun. I overcut just to get fresh growth/food in hope to attract then past my stands.

i'll head north this weekend to check out the cabin. I think I can get w/I 2 miles and walk the rest. water purifier, freeze dried food.... sounds like going to AK again. hopefully I can find a way to get the ATV out. if so, then I can make a plan to hunt this fall. it will be a pain every weekend if I need to walk in and out, but it might be doable. i'll have a good idea a week from today. wish me luck

good luck to all

Sounds like a good plan Yari. If you can get your 4 wheeler out, you can use it to get back in with supplies in hunting season!!

Hope it all works out for you! ##$%#11

things might be better than expected. I talked to a great USFS guy this week. I think the walk for plan 'B' will be 2 1/2 miles but most flat. then I should be able to get the ATV back to the truck. that means cold beer!!!!! (it's the little things I look forward to)

if his info is good, I will be hunting up there. I won't be able to drive all the way, but it will be doable. I will just bring the ATV home every weekend and carry my gear the last couple miles w/ the ATV. i'm not excited about leaving the truck on the road w/ all the criminals, but that's the hand i'm dealt.

wish me luck. cams, cutting plots, hopefully get some desperation plots in. i'm sure culvert repair is also happening. i'll fill you in next week

Sounds like a workable solution Yari - could have been far worse.  Be careful up there.  By the way, I have a 2" receiver on my quad - if you can't pull a trailer you may be able to use one of those hitch carriers to haul some gear beyond what will fit on your front/rear racks.  It comes in handy for me once in awhile.

the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I have a small JD trailer up there. I normally use it to haul water and fertilizer. It will come in handy for sure
