In another thread someone asked me about including a section on canoe hunting in my book, "Float Hunting Alaska's Wild Rivers". While I do have a couple of pages on inflatable canoes and rigging, it's far short of what the topic deserves. And although I know some information that would relate to canoe hunting, that's not my specialty. Besides, the book is already long enough and there's no way we can shoehorn another section in there.
Sooo... I am calling on the canoe hunters out there who may be interested in collaborating on a special section on canoe hunting here on the site. We would need good supporting photos, plus sections on boat types, materials, rigging (I can do a lot of that work), specialized canoe tactics for moose, caribou, bear and possibly Dall sheep. I know a lot of guys are using canoes to float meat out of the mountains on smaller river systems, and this information could be really valuable for other folks. Not looking for specific river information, but just techniques and tactics that relate to safety and actual hunting. We could include inflatable canoes, hard-shell boats and possibly motorized canoes.
And no, this information will not be sold or anything. We will park ads in the section, and we may put it in a members-only area or something. Not sure yet.
If anyone is interested, shoot me an email.
