    Has anyone hunted up the Echooka? I'm wondering what the the country is like?

    I hunted there in the winter on snow machines. Rolling hills covered with chest high brush. We had to cross some water that overflowed behind us, making for a scary return trip. Lots of caribou, wolves and ox on that trip.

    I have only seen airboats up this stream...lots of rocks at the mouth for jet boats. I don't know of any fly in and float out though...at the right time there are a lot of 'bou in this area...you have the ability to get a little elevation so you can glass a long way.

    It's open terrain, but water levels are highly unpredictable. I would advise not planning on floating it most August time slots. Good terrain for caribou and Griz after 25 august.

    A couple of tundra slips for drop offs about midway up. Occasional gravel bars higher up for drops as well.

    Lots of good area up there.You almost need a air boat to venture up in that area.Skinny water throughout.Many good hills for glassing.
