The things you see bird hunting
Out near Everett Lake grouse hunting when all of a sudden a water bomber goes over my head no more than 3 or 4 hundred feet. I learned later that the fire was near Highbluff Lake north of Longpoint Lake. I headed down to the shore of Everett Lake to watch him fill up and take off just about every 10 minutes. Here's a couple of pics. the plane is a Canadair CL-415 made by Bombardier it can scoop up 6,130 L. of water in 12 seconds.
Yesterday I drove up near Highbluff lake and didn't see any smoke.
