This is me lugging a mistnet around on the tundra. Mistnets are a highly effective way of capturing birds. Normally you plant them in the ground like a volleyball net and the birds fly right in, as they are unable to see the net. It's a good method but on the vast tundra we did a lot of roving mistnets--where two pairs of two people hold onto the end of two mistnets and walk with them, seeking out birds. It's pretty effective but of course there's a LOT of walking involved. There is a drilling pad visible in the background in this pic. We were lucky to have access to all areas on the oilfields.
