    Re: Stuck in snow storm at Redfern - Need urgent help

    Here's the lesson.
    When you are caught in the middle of a snowstorm, use your chainsaw to cut firewood and build shelter instead of blowing the saw gas on cutting snow laden branches. You know that if it's snowing hard, there is going to be a shitload of sagging branches and maybe some toppled trees. The idea is to stay warm and dry and presumably with some food and drink to tide you over. Once the storm abates you get on your way. You use your sat phone or whatever the communication device may be to inform the good woman at home you are going to be delayed and will contact her again when you are on the way and what time she should expect you. Failing your arrival she can then phone the police that you are overdue and she hasn't heard from you since yesterday. And then post it here to seek to see if any of the good members perchance have any information on your whereabouts.
    The only one that saw the light of day was S.W.A.T. with his post, " I'm a little confused. Obviously they have contact with the outside world, why dont they just contact for help".

    How can you construct a lesson pertaining to this situation which you don't know anything about
    Confused? only if trying to finish a puzzle with so many missing pieces
    Never say 'whoa' in the middle of a mud hole.

    The weather conditions in the north are a challenge right now to anyone out in the bush.
    One to two feet of snow depending on your altitude and now pissing down rain.
    Flying is limited....so extended lakeside camp outs are happening.
    Some of the “couch critics” on here don’t have a clue what an early winter storm like this can be to deal with.

    Yep. I’m stuck in Dease right now waiting on a flight. There are a bunch of groups ahead of us and a whole bunch in the bush waiting to come out. We are the lucky ones.

    Holy cow, a page and a half of crap before someone posted something sensible and helpful. Well said 325

    Can we all get back to the original point here, fellas?! E-hem..... Um, maam?! Did they see any game there? And how big?... (turns head and shushes the rest, then turns back to intently listen)

    Sounds like that trail turned into spaghetti once the snow hit ... branches heavy laden with leaves then snow... probably even tryin to walk on that trail presented a challenge ... glad you made it out.
    Been here awhile ...

    Really happy to hear that the guys made it out safe... That said WTF is wrong with some people posing on this thread ? The lady asked for help not a lecture or smart ass comments....
    Yup, it's easier to manage hunters (LEH) than it is to manage wildlife. And, generally, LEH satisfies the Guide Outfitter because it limits the number of hunters in their area.
