You know if I spend too much time over on the Trapper Talk site I get to missing Joe Vogler.

Here's a pic of my Auntie overlooking the allotment facing north. Our own slice of heaven, 90 acres worth. Our cabin is on the lower left side of the snap shot right next to the creek. My Attata (grandpa) picked a pretty good spot for his allotment.



When I picture heaven, that is just what it looks like. AWESOME cabin.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Jeff, how is the King run looking for real? Biologists are saying it will be terrible, but I always take that with a grain of salt. Especailly after the year their sonar at Pilot Station was pointed at a sand bar and the fish were going upriver on the other side of it one year.

TJ they are closing subsisnce Kings after today,they have pushed the panic button already since the runs are late, there is still ice out in the Bering sea keeping the water temps cool and we had a cold spring so who knows when they will hit.

and yes you are right about the sonar they dont have a clue how to count fish I wish they would just quit using it and go with the drift test fishery (we have one here now).

sounds like the same story on the Kusko they closed it already.

O-man looks like you are going to eat good this winter!

That's cool compared to what is in the forecast over here for the next couple of days. Low 90's with high humidity! Had to get out the fan for my German Shorthair so he would be comfortable !!

Yeah I'll bet.

I can't take much of this. Only outside for short periods. Too much Eskimo in me I guess

Bummer on the Kings. I have yet to see one king swirl in the offshoots of the Susitna I've been in this summer. I havent been out as much as I'd like, but still pretty slow. Havent seen a moose around my place since April either. Not a good sign.
