This hunt got off to a bad start when most of my luggage got bumped from the commuter flight from High Level, Alberta, to Edmonton. Because there were no other flights that day, the luggage would arrive late the next day, and I'd have to fly without it. I was supposed to leave for another hunt in British Columbia, so I made my early morning flight to Prince Rupert minus luggage. I'd have to overnight there since the luggage wouldn't be in until late. The original plan was to get to Prince Rupert in mid-morning, WITH the luggage, and head out on a hunt via a large boat that would serve as base camp. Because there were other hunters waiting for me, I didn't want to delay their hunt, so I arranged to charter a bush plane and fly me the next morning directly to the boat.
