I have baited my butt off for the last 3 years and still for one reason or another can not connect or even see a black bear in person. So i was wondering, I have a 16 foot alumacraft v bottom boat that i can putt along in, in around a foot of water or more. It has a 35 horse prop driven motor on it, will this work in the yukon. If so can i pretty much put her up on step and run her or do i have to be extreamely careful on that river for shallow spots and other debrie. It looks like a big deep river but i could be wrong and being wrong in alaska can cost you your life so i figure it's better to ask the question. If my boat can handle it what is the hunting pressure like up there. If i take in a bunch of bait over a long weekend what is the average time it takes for bears to start hitting up there? Also, it the last question i promis, I dont plan on worrying about getting up there early but is the second week of may safe for putting a bait in up there? Thanks for any and all help anyone can give me. If you dont want to tell everyone these answers feel free to PM me.
