    Default Barter: South Dakota Pheasant Hunting for Alaska fishing

    There will be 3-4 of us coming to Kenai July 18-25th this summer. We are looking for someone to take us out for a day or two to fish halibut or a day-only salmon fishing fly out. I own and operate a full-scale South Dakota pheasant hunting lodge and would be willing to barter a pheasant, waterfowl, whitetail archery hunt in exchange. If interested you can contact me via our website.

    Apart from the fact that I think your offer is illegal in Alaska, you may want to add a caveat before offering waterfowl hunts in SoDak. Aren't non-resident licenses still lottery?

    Yes, waterfowl tags are lottery-draw which occurs right before our trip up there.

    Seriously, it's illegal for someone to take us out halibut fishing when we are up there and then come to my place for a pheasant hunt? Hard to believe!

    Solution, we are offering to pay $1.00 to anyone who can take us out halibut fishing for a day?

    Yes, South Dakota Waterfowl licenses are still lottery. The drawing occurs in mid-July, a week before we arrive up there. Remember we also have pheasant hunting and archery hunting available.

    Having someone take us halibut fishing for a day and then coming to my place to enjoy some pheasant hunting is illegal? Hard to believe!

    OK we are offering $1.00 to anyone who can take three of us out halibut fishing this July. Does that work? lol

    I believe that solution would be illegal unless you work out the deal with a registered guide.

    I assume you have not read the regulations concerning the subject. Why not pay a guide their rates? and then collect the fees for services rendered on your end?

    Wouldn't it just be one friend taking some buddies fishing? Next, one buddy treats his friends to a hunt on his property in SD? Seems like a pretty cool deal, if I only had a halibut boat!

    Ringneck . . . I grew up in SD and have lived up here for 9 years. You offer a nice trade but it's not fair value . . . 4 guys for one day on a fly-in fishing excursion, plus two days of chartered halibut? You must have a heckuva a nice operation back there, with 100% wild-raised birds and free trips to the casinos. The non-resident licenses for waterfowl and deer combined are double the cost of a non-res 3-day fishing license up here.

    So you want to trade air and boat travel for how much time on the ground at your lodge?

    I think the idea of you paying full-price up here and them committing and paying full price back there is fair and friendly.

    I know it isn't legal per the "guide"
    regulations.
    It has also been debated on here whether friends can pay for gas and I believe that still is a gray area.
    Any way you look at it if it were me I would pass. And I own a halibut boat.
    It certainly wouldn't be the first ticket the troopers have written based on posts from this forum.
    A guided hunting trip in the Midwest certainly constitutes a form of payment for a fishing trip.
    Therefore without a guides license you would be in violation. Posting online about it just makes the brownshirts job that much easier.

    To the OP just pay the going rate for the services you want and save yourself a lot of hassle.
