    I'm leaning towards going. My wife hasnt said go or not to do it. Majority of the people seem to be leaning towards going.
    Eric seems like a great guy . It's me who is aprehensive do to my lack of experience.
    Thank you
    I have learned so much from guys who were willing to teach. Even to have an opportunity to just watch and learn.

    Would not hesitate personally. Ask questions, work hard, don’t whine, cook and clean. Totally worth it.

    I agree buddy! I've got no problems cooking cleaning or whatever and ask questions. Guess if I'm going to go I should buy a bugal and start practicing..lol

    I've been watching the elk hunting show called Land OF The Free 2.0. Great videos. Have you watched them?

    So, I know and work with the fellow BStrachan is contemplating going on this hunt with....we're not friends or anything away from work, But, I think we can be pretty sure he's not an axe murderer or total wing nut. That being said....look at it this way

    worst case.....its a shitty trip, you don't get along....SO WHAT!! blowing one week of one hunting season is not the end of the world!

    best case.......its a GREAT trip!!! You guys get along great, and you make a great friend and hunting partner!

    the potential upside outweighs the potential downside, you're risking possibly one shitty hunt against the chance of MANY great hunts in the future

    I say giv'er

    Chris, I thank you! Thanks for your input and, standing up for Eric, goes along ways when a person speaks good about someone they work with.
    As right now, I'm looking at the financial side of it.
    The cost of a ferry plus the gas for me to make it to your neck of the woods. Plus the other expenses from Quenell to our hunting spot.

    Definately a pricier endeavor from your end....if i recall its a solid 8 hour trip to your chosen hunting area once you get to quesnel from the island...which alone has got to be 10 hrs+??? Pretty much 2 days travel on either end of the trip.
