Coleen or Sheenjek River Hunts
I ran a search for archival forum info with little luck.
Can anyone please suggest an air taxi service that could help us with a drop or float hunt on the Coleen or Sheenjek Rivers? We'd be looking primarily for moose.
one of the best and most experienced air taxies for that area is: Wright Air Service
Fairbanks, AK 99701-0000
I used Wrights and they were first class. Never seen anything neg on them and things couldn't have gone smoother.
Another vote for Wrights, they are first rate and i'll use them again when I do another float hunt.
cant go wrong
with Wrights, also check with Kirk of Yukon Air out of Ft Yukon
Watch the video "700 Miles Alone". I believe that he did that hunt on the Shenjek(sp?). The video was awesome, and may give you a little insight into the terrain and what to expect.
Give Kirk Sweetsir a call from Yukon Air Service. ( http://www.yukonair.com/ )
I heard from a few bush pilots that area has seen increased traffic since that video, but I guess everyplace has increasing use. Good Luck, and you wont go wrong with Wrights.
No better hunting forum
You guys, and this site, are fantastic. I mostly lurk, and only occasionaly post, but I always benefit from the wisdom and experience here.
The only thing better would be to go out hunting with you all!!
