As a guide in Idaho I used this man several years to fly with. When I came to Texas there was no more landing on snow banks or river banks or straight up and taking off down a mountain.

I post this now because my Mothers crazy husband is getting a plane and his license. (it will happen they got serious cash and drive). I will not fly to Idaho with him and land on a bush pilots ground.

Read the attached story via my buddy Crash Arnold and longtime friend.

hell I might just add I was 10 when I took my first flight with him assisting my Father whom is a guide as well and customer of pilot above.

great read. after spending 10 days up in Idaho/SE washington this summer, i can appreciate this story a lot more. My family homesteaded up there too, and lots of times i wish my grandfather had still stayed on that little dairy farm near Cocolalla. its a completely different world up there, and a better one if you ask me.

AND your mother shouldn't either! :frown:

Heard of a lady pilot that flew up one of those canyons there long ago and never came out. Don't know if wreckage was ever found?

Tks for article, interesting read..

It's ironic you post this. We found the wreckage in a box canyon a year later (was already located) but we did stumble across it while hunting far in the back country of Idaho in a steep box canyon on the south slope of a mountain about 7k feet above the river on the Salmon river.

I sure do miss the days of hunting back there and regret moving down here at times but it was a time in my life when it was mandatory. I do intend to hunt there this year.

Nothing against Texas hunters but sitting in a box shooting deer is not what I dig. Like I said nothing against ya'll just not for me.

Pretty cool article. I can imagine if you grew up hunting mountains then our "flat land brush" may seem a bit mundane but some big boys live in the brush. I can say I have not hunted the mountains so I may have to check it out one day.
