Isn't Kavik where the one lady, Sue, is from that is on the TV show "Life Below Zero"?

Pretty sure if you talk to Sue in Kavic she would be able to find you a bigger plane to get all your gear/meat to and from.

Google Kavic River Camp for contact info...

There is really regular service to Kavik. You normally fly in on a charter that gets split in cost based on however many people are going. Sounds crazy, but that's the arctic. It's a longish runway, so anything can get in there.

It's really sound advice to call the camp. You can likely get on a plane with some other guys that way, since all the pilots operating out of Kavik tend to talk to each other often, and they all talk to Sue.

Hopefully, Kavik is just the start of your journey. ANWR is just right there.....

Forget who I used but it was in a 207, plenty of room for all gear and meat. Sue has an amazing story!

Just ran into her at a local place in town on our way home from bear hunting. She talked to us like old friends for an hour. It was her birthday. Nice lady with tons of stories.

"Nick gets all the chics..."

Kota, couldn't agree more! He pretty much has life figured out!

You and I on the other hand are just happy to get a few pieces of new gear and shoot a critter or two each year.....
