    Wow, what an incredible story! Thanks, Daniel, for telling it with your words and pictures. For many of us, this will be as close as we can come to a bear hunt in Alaska. Thanks Lance and Brother Bear for letting us tag along. Truly amazing.

    Sorry to beg but, Jason, when are we getting another story?

      Hi Doug,

      Thank you so much for the kind words and support for Daniel’s work. He is very talented and I am thrilled to have him involved in this industry. We are working on an interview and biography on a guide out of the Yukon and a feature on the development of the Carbon Fiber Frame. I will let you know on the blog when we publish. Happy New Year.

    Last Friday I was up late and stumbled upon an episode of Flying Wild on the Discovery Channel. During the show they were getting ready to take a couple of guys out hunting. All of a sudden I noticed that one of the guys was where a pair of the new KUIU pants. Then it hit me. This show was about the pilot that flew Daniel & Lance for this hunting trip. I quick hopped on to kuiu.com and sure enough if was this exact same hunt. And if the order of the show is correct. Those pictures of Jim the pilot on page 2 are actually from when he picked the guys up. When he dropped them off it was on a hill. It was pretty crazy to see how they had to make through out a bunch a gear before then landed because they were to heavy. It was a pretty cool episode. And the KUIU pants looked good on TV.

      I missed Flying Wild on Friday as I was traveling and will record it the next time it is on. I knew Lance and Daniel were filmed on their trip but was not sure when they were going to air that section. I appreciate you letting us know! I cannot wait to see the KUIU pants on TV.

    Yeah it was pretty cool. My girlfriend thought I was crazy when I got all excited that the show was showing the same hunt that is on kuiu.com. I tried to explain it’s like the same feeling you get when you see some actress where the exact same pair of shoes you have, but I wasn’t getting very far. hahaha

    Here is a clip from that hunt…
