    Default Hunting rig pics

    Just interested what you guys are using as your primary hunting rigs? Due to Uncle Sam thinking I need to be in the middle east (hell) during my first summer in Alaska (not gonna get to hunt this year). I just thought you guys/gals wouldn't mind showing me what your using whether it be Boat/plane/ATV/UTV/pickup? Thanks

    Default Hunting Rig

    I've hunted Alaska about 12 times. We have used about every type of transportation available from a re-powered (turbo-prop) Otter owned by Ketchum to shank's mare (walking - for the younger set).7 Rob On Birch Creek - Sept 2000.jpg.

    However, the picture of Rob in our early Aire leopard is the most common form of travel.

    Here was a decent rig from a couple years back.

    They don't make them any more. That good.

    After that year we just take the two Quad Runners. IMO, there is no more reliable, efficient (motorized) way to hunt.

    The toyota was great. The truck towing it at 4 mpg was great too. The thing that sucked was the hunting partner who drove said toyota into a muskeg bog with no trees to winch to.....30 minutes into the hunting trip. Literally, the muck was up to the passenger side window. He's lucky he didn't lose it completely. It was one of those muskeg bogs that feels like you're walking on a water bed and it's anyone's guess as to where the thin spots are. Well, there's one thin spot that I KNOW of now, and it shall be avoided every trip from here on. We have since refined our plan quite a bit.

    I have also hunted by canoe which is a peaceful, reliable way to hunt but it is slow paced. I prefer the quads to any other way (have yet to hunt by plane yet). Easy to haul, fun to drive, easy to fix (comparatively), easy to pull out when stuck and they make a perfect shooting rest when you finally get up on a moose. And, like snowmachine hunting in the winter, if you don't get an animal, you still spent 3 days riding a quad in one of the coolest places on earth.
