Thanks guys. We may be getting released from the search tonight. It's not looking good out here and the weather is showing no signs of letting up. Lot's of snow falling all day and night is making hopes of finding the helo slim until the spring thaw reveals what it has buried. We've found nothing in the waters or along the shores and with all the snow and fog the planes that are searching are having a rough time too. If we make it back sometime tonight or early tomorrow morning that'll give me three more days of hunting before my season ends. I've got another underway trip next week so Monday will be my last chance to get after the birds here in Alaska until next season. I'm leaving for California the first week of January though! I've got a month long school down there in Petaluma that starts on the 7th of January so anybody in the area that's looking for a hunting partner just let me know! I should be able to get in a few weekends of hunting there before the season closes at the end of the month.
