I have deleted the names however I thought being that this is Alaska and we all try to get along in the business of providing service to people I was a bit taken back when one of my rental clients told me about this.
Shocking to be honest. I had no idea ONE person could own and entire public river ad that because they wish to make money in Alaska when they don't even live here they can tell other non-Res hunters if they use the river it will become a hostile environment. Note the Phrase IT WILL BECOME A HOSTILE AREA. I wonder what the State Troopers would think of such a threat.

Respond from the hunt planner:
if you float up and pass another group I am sure you'll be very unwelcome
and it will become a hostile area- I have seen it happen before !!!!! I
talked to you before and some how you located the river I use from my
I suggest you keep your ass up high and float real slow - I also will be
there making a video this year -so good odds I will see you there on the
river...your creating a big mess and could ruin peoples dream hunts of a
once in a lifetime trip
