Two of us went on a fly in moose hunt WAY north of Thompson. There is no access to this area unless with a plane. Fourth day of the hunt we are fishing hoping to get a quick feed of walleye for dinner. East of us there is a pane flying maybe 75 yards high. Doesn't take a genius to fiqure it's either going to crash or it's CO's. Turns out its the later. For the 5 plus minutes it took for them to land I could have baked a cake. They made some nice tight circles tree top high on one of our moose spots. They land there plane, not just any float plane, a giant turbo otter. Why not take a 185 or a beaver? So we have two CO's, one mountie, one pilot, plus fuel, plus maintenance doing checks. They checked our hooks, checked to see if we had loaded guns (didn't) checked our licences. I had my moose tag in my pack but hunter's safety and my fishing licence at camp. They NEARLY fired up that big plane again to go 3 miles to our camp to see our hunter's safety. Could these checks not have been done at the float plane base? I would like to hear 1 case only one where all this expense justified the cost of flying in on a lake. On a side note, my friend got a 52.5 bull.
