    Default Everthing Koyukuk 2012

    Thought I would start a thread about this years Koyukuk trip. Everyone can post their questions here and we can all talk about our plans as we get ready.

    Got the boat back today with the camper extension added. Will make it nice to camp on this year.

    Steve your Wooly is starting to look like it has been in Alaska for a few years with all the add-ons you have done. You will love having the camper canvas on the back sure makes it nice to get out of the rain and have a mobile home.

    I will be venturing down again with a tag for draw 828 in hand. My boat is in its 4th decade of travels on the rivers, my first Koyukuk run was in 89 this year will be #15 for the Koyukuk. Hunted a lot of other areas along the way but this is my favorite. The boat has seen a little transformation over the years but keeps running strong and doing its part. A few pictures should help keep the anticipation level high.

    And the best shot of each trip- coming home on step, running good, with a full load of meat!!

    Yes Sir,, about to get her the way I like it. The camper will be nice out in PWS while the boy and I run and gun.

    Going to load up the mother ship and throw the Jet Ranger in and use it to chase swamp donkeys. My Son is really excited as this will be his first big adventure here.

    Koyukuk moose was my first "big" hunt with my dad. 13 days of charging, grunting aggressive moose. Amazing duck hunting, pike fishing and if you know where to look...you'll find silvers late September

    Kudos. No better way to set the bar.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    The raft with transom and seats weights 145lbs, the engine weights 120lbs. Under 300lbs ready to go, and will haul about 800lbs on step.

    Steve, is that a meat rack on top?

    I may try to tie some moose quarters to the sides, but it is mostly for light bulky items. I have had a bear on it before.

    It is a nice looking set up and would be a good asset for that trip but that weight pushes it over my limit.

    Ordered a 4 bladed Aluminum prop, going to test it in PWS and see how it does. Need a couple spares for the trip so going to try a couple different ones.
