    Default Looking to hire water taxi to Deshka Landing

    In mid September I'm planning a float hunt from Kroto Creek towards confluence, but looking to hire a private or commercial taxi back to the landing. Two rafts, four guys, hopefully two moose (probably two round trips). Willing to pay your launch fees, gas & reasonable amount for your time. Understand water may be low upstream, not looking for any shallow water heroics. Any takers or suggestions?

    He should get some good shots of all the airboats in there.

    None of my affair but be careful of stepping over that "Transporter" line guys.
    Hate to see someone loose a boat to the state or something.

    Vance - thanks for sending this warning out. I was going to reply to you privately, but hopefully by eating a bit of crow this may help somebody else who is trying to hunt or fish on a tight budget. By statute, "transportation services" means "the carriage for compensation of big game hunters, their equipment, or big game animals harvested by hunters to, from, or in the field." At the end of the day, this is exactly what was looking for - but did not realize I could be putting a private guy without a "transporter" license at risk. I'm still looking to hire a shuttle, but now only from a licensed outfitter or guide. Any recommendations?
