Weather affects hunting. Ideal weather would be days in the 40's and 50's and nights in the 20's. Warmer than normal temperatures or constant rain make moose hunting more difficult. It is impossible to predict the best part of the season to hunt because it dependent on weather, not dates. Willow Air Service NEVER pushes weather. There is always a possibility of non-flyable weather days. We take every measure to not overbook in case of this happening. If this should occur, we recommend you stay at Susie's Iditarod Cafe until we can fly. We will fly people in the same order as their original schedule. In other words, if you are scheduled to fly out on the 17th and the weather was bad on the 16th, the people who were scheduled to fly on the 16th will fly first. As stated earlier, we make every attempt for that not to occur but, as we all know, weather is uncontrollable. Remember, if the weather is bad when you are scheduled to fly out of the bush and back to McGrath, you might not get out on your scheduled date. Make your airline reservations flexible and always bring extra food. The end of the season is always busy and the weather tends to get worse, so the later you hunt, the more chance of delays. We try hard not to get behind; but again, we cannot control the weather.
