We have a trip planned to moose hunt in unit 21b. Hunting just east of Ruby. The original plan was to fly an inflatable and a motor into ruby and hunt out of the inflatable for 2 weeks with 3 guys. One guy dropped out so we are now spending more each to get the boat in and we have less weight in the boat so I was wondering if boating in is a better option. We will have a 14 ft zodiac inflatable with a 40hp motor. Putting in at the haul road bridge and heading down should be 225 miles give or take. I have never been on this stretch of the Yukon so I do not know I'd this is a good idea or not. What do you guys think? 14ft zodiac with a 40 horse on the yukon? How doable and how safe is it? It would save us a lot of money.
Also considering flying the boat out as an option so we don't have to run it up current.
Thanks for any help
